Wagner talks about how the students of this generation are experiencing things that none have experienced before and we therefore should adapt our strategies to the new things that our students are experiencing. Students are now experiencing multimedia in pretty much every single part of their lives. As Wagner talks about: "students refuse to read large amounts of text, whether it involves a long reading assignment or lengthy instructions" (Wagner 178). We need to keep this kind of information in mind to make sure that we are giving assignments that students will get the most benefit from and that they will actually do. We also need to try to give them assignments that coincide more with what they are already doing, as Wagner talks about we need to communicate with them using things that they are using things like MySpace. There are some things that students are doing such as multitasking which they may think makes them more productive, but as Wagner talks about, this does not actually work, they will get less out of it than if they were not multitasking. We need to make sure that we are using tasks that will get students engaged by giving them assignments that utilize things such as social media and make sure that we are using tasks that apply to their lives.
