The world is changing, has been changing. Education, though a slow moving machine, has recognized to importance of transmogrifying the current practice to meet students where they are. Neuroscientist have recognized the observed the development of students' neurodevelopment and learning, which has led to the need for changing pedagogical methods to reach and teach these "digital natives".
"Psychology Today" contributor Jim Taylor, PhD, stated in his article, "How Technology Is Changing the Way Children Think and Focus", "Exposure to technology isn’t all bad. Research shows that, for example, video games and other screen media improve visual-spatial capabilities, increase attentional ability, reaction times, and the capacity to identify details among clutter. Also, rather than making children stupid, it may just be making them different. For example, the ubiquitous use of internet search engines is causing children to become less adept at remembering things and more skilled at remembering where to find things. Given the ease with which information can be found these days, it only stands to reason that knowing where to look is becoming more important for children than actually knowing something. Not having to retain information in our brain may allow it to engage in more “higher-order” processing such as contemplation, critical thinking, and problem-solving." (citation) Therefore, education is having to re-think the ways that students interact with information, and how educators present the information to work with students' brains.
