Welcome to the New Millennium Learners (NML) pages! The emergence of digital native learners has major potential implications for education. The objective of the NML is to analyse this new generation of learners and understand their expectations and attitudes. The impact of digital technologies on cognitive skills and on learning expectations, and the evolution of social values and lifestyles are important issues.
Initially, the project is intended to focus on the demand side of the NML, thus looking at the main areas of concern resulting from the impact of a continuous use of digital devices and services. In the later stage, the project will deal with the supply side, reviewing what educational institutions have done to accommodate or to struggle with NML characteristics, expectations and needs.
The New Millennium Learners project also includes an activity on ICT and Initial Teacher Training
