|Title||Technology is shaping the future of education: Striking the right balance between the old and new|
|Creators||Ennis, C. and McGraw-Hill Education|
As educators we need to be aware of and accepting of the fact that millennials have been raised in an environment that is significantly different to that of preceding generations – and consider how we can use the technology they are so fused with to promote and enhance learning.
One very good example of this comes from the Westminster Business School, where Senior Lecturer Digital Operations and Designer of Management Learning, Caroline Ennis, is trailblazing the use of digital simulation to teach students about production and supply chain management.
Using Practice Operations, a 3D multiplayer learning game from McGraw-Hill Education, students play the role of the Supply and Distribution manager of a clothing manufacturing company, where they must make strategic decisions and operate their growing business at a profit.
