Mobile technologies have turned today’s college student into a cyborg - part human, part machine - constantly and immediately connected with data that provides one-dimensional answers, while also syphoning the student’s mind of the hunger for independent inquiry, initiative, and wonder. In this presentation, Joel English will demonstrate ways that college instructors can lead today’s college students in stronger critical skills (including reading, writing, researching, and problem-solving) through metacognitive inquiry and activities that make visible the very technologies and Internet language that threaten to keep students stagnant.
