Blogging About Today’s Students

The only regular thematic post I tend to make from my Bloglines entries.  Not K-12 online learning, but unfortunately a topic that often gets associated with K-12 online learning (regardless of how off base the information being presented actually is).

Note that I have also come across three blogs, well two blogs and a wiki that are worth following

These two individuals focus upon the snowflake phenomenon.  For those of you unfamilar with the term snowflake, it refers to the generation of students we have now and is most often used by those in higher education.  It comes out of the work, or more accurately is in defiance, of the notions put forth by Howe and Strauss (i.e., millennials) and others that the students today are so unique and so precious and will save the world – get it, everyone is unique, just like a snowflake.  Okay, so my prose isn’t that eloquent this afternoon so if you want to know more the wiki entry here for snowflake is quite good.

I should also note that you’d read a lot about snowflakes here too.

Note that tomorrow I will continue with some more thematic entries as I continue to clean out my Bloglines saved posts.
