Summary
Working with and devising quality educational resources for "Generation M"--today's group of teens and young adults born in the early 1980s through the mid 1990s--can be a challenge. You'll find a comprehensive introduction and overview of Gen M, including key term definitions, background information, and a clear idea of the scope of issues facing educators charged with teaching and working with this age group. The authors cover popular online tools like Facebook Wikipedia, YouTube, and Google, many of which play a large role in Gen M information retrieval, and also address key educational theories and provide instruction for creating lessons and learning objects that can be used in both traditional and online educational environments. Examples of current best practices are provided, along with corresponding instruction for designing and implementing them in your library or classroom.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Edited by a reference librarian and Web administrator at Rutgers University and an associate professor-librarian at Rider University who co-leads the Library Instruction Program and serves as reference collection development librarian, this work brings together writings by 26 librarians and educators at colleges and universities across the U.S. to facilitate thoughtful planning for teaching Generation M in the college library. Separated into three sections, the volume begins with chapters defining Generation M and the meaning of the term literacy. The second section defines the culture of Generation M and the technologies it encounters. The final section focuses on best educational practices, theories, and applications to assist the librarian or other educator in serving this new population of students while not forgetting the older populations. This is a valuable addition to any academic library collection.--Marcus, Sara Copyright 2010 Booklist"
