They might not know as much as you think

Tech wise that is.  According to a recent article I read in Campus Technology “American millennials (those between the ages of 16 and 34) may be the first generation that grew up with computers and Internet access, but all that time spent glued to a small screen hasn’t translated to technology competence. While they spend an average of 35 hours every week on digital media, nearly six out of 10 millennials can’t do basic tasks such as sorting, searching for and emailing data from a spreadsheet.’ (http://campustechnology.com/articles/2015/06/11/report-6-of-10-millennials-have-low-technology-skills.aspx)  Distance Ed students can find many resources here and you can also use Lynda.com to help students build skills.  Questions?  Contact OET.
