The topic for this week's meeting will be: What skills are
disappearing in the next generation of learners? In the media there is
usually talk about young people having new skills, and older people
lacking skills. However: are there valuable skills that the new
generation of learners are missing out on? Will this hinder their
learning? If so: are there ways of reintroducing these skills?
Moderator: Sheila Yoshikawa (Sheila Webber outside SL)
