My name is Justin Fox, and I am a Mathematics and Computer Science teacher at the Bronx HS of Science in Bronx, NY. I was wondering if I could ask a few questions regarding your experiences teaching students, as well as your students who are 21st century learners that are considered "Millenials" (also known as Generation Y). In particular, I have the following questions:
1) What grade level/age range do you teach?
2) What subject areas do you teach?
3) What observations have you made about the way "Millenials" (born between 1980 and 1995) learn? Particularly those students within the last 5 years. How are they more technologically aware?
4) Do the assignments/projects that you give the students have a technology component? How about your lessons?
