Don Tapscott

Business Executive

The Don Tapscott presentations elaborate upon the interaction between today's youthful generation and digital technology. While many are quick to point out the drawbacks presented by the .com age, Tapscott has highlighted its overarching benefits. He argues that students are more knowledgeable today than they were in the past, and that despite their broadened understanding of the world, educational structures have failed to keep up pace.

Tapscott's take on pedagogy is an outgrowth of his own academic background. His completion of a psychology and statistics B.Sc and a M.Ed have been followed by his receipt of honorary degrees from the University of Alberta, Trent University and McMaster University.

The scholarly weight that lies behind Don Tapscott's presentations reinforces the validity of his message, and many have come to wholeheartedly endorse his forward-thinking approach to learning. In 2011 he was ranked 9th on the Thinkers50 list, following his authorship of "Grown Up Digital: How the Net Generation is Changing Your World," now recognized as a multi-million dollar research project.
