I personally feel that learning has changed drastically since I was in highschool which wasn’t really that long ago…only 20 years! The way students learn is so different now in this century then when I went to school. Students are now able to have more choice over their own learning, more students seem to need more support in their learning, and students are expected to know more than my age group was ever expected to know in a shorter time span, with all the lengthy curriculum expectations.
There are so many challenges that students face today in their learning; distractions (social media), condensed curriculum expectations, shorter time lines, expectations from the ministry, ever-changing technologies for the learner to know and learn from. Students have high expectations placed on them today with so many more barriers that it makes it hard for students to actually learn and grow as an individuals in this fast pace ever-changing world.
