Our teenagers and young adults are learning, experiencing through a visual world. Truly, a revolution is underfoot. Students are learning in a much more multi-modal and interactive fashion. EnglishCentral recognizes this and we are heading where the students are – not trying to lead them in any other direction. Teens have special needs and this presentation outlines many of them that us teachers should be aware of.

This infographic shows how pervasive the use of video is by teens. And that’s why we should be teaching them through this powerful, visual, social media.

About matt sutton

I'm elementary special education teacher. Everyone has different learning styles and as students and teachers we've got to make it all fit together. I surround my students and myself with technology every day in hopes that we all learn more effectively. The most critical point for (any) student learning is their engagement in material. There is not limit to what that entails which is why it is so important to keep everything an option. Teaching students is a constantly moving target and we can't limit our resources. I also don't like frogs.
