Abstract: This paper explores the issues and challenges associated with the transformative nature of digital media and devices on teaching and learning. It proposes that current students may think and process information differently than their teachers and suggests that we adopt the term digital mind as a way to explain this phenomenon. It explores the relationship of societal changes to the learning styles of current students and suggests possible ways to alter classroom activities to accommodate not just the inclusion of devices, but the learning styles associated with digital minds.
