Two seismic forces beyond our control – the advent of Web 2.0 and the inexorable influx of tech-savvy Millennials on campus – are shaping what Roger McHaney calls “The New Digital Shoreline” of higher education. Failure to chart its contours, and adapt, poses a major threat to higher education as we know it.

These forces demand that we as educators reconsider the learning theories, pedagogies, and practices on which we have depended, and modify our interactions with students and peers―all without sacrificing good teaching, or lowering standards, to improve student outcomes.

Achieving these goals requires understanding how the indigenous population of this new shoreline is different. These students aren’t necessarily smarter or technologically superior, but they do have different expectations. Their approaches to learning are shaped by social networking and other forms of convenient, computer-enabled and mobile communication devices; by instant access to an over-abundance of information; by technologies that have conferred the ability to personalize and customize their world to a degree never seen before; and by time-shifting and time-slicing.

As well as understanding students’ assumptions and expectations, we have no option but to familiarize ourselves with the characteristics and applications of Web 2.0―essentially a new mind set about how to use Internet technologies around the concepts of social computing, social media, content sharing, filtering, and user experience.

Roger McHaney not only deftly analyzes how Web 2.0 is shaping the attitudes and motivations of today’s students, but guides us through the topography of existing and emerging digital media, environments, applications, platforms and devices – not least the impact of e-readers and tablets on the future of the textbook – and the potential they have for disrupting teacher-student relationships; and, if appropriately used, for engaging students in their learning.

This book argues for nothing less than a reinvention of higher education to meet these new realities. Just adding technology to our teaching practices will not suffice. McHaney calls for a complete rethinking of our practice of teaching to meet the needs of this emerging world and envisioning ourselves as connected, co-learners with our students.

Review:

"A masterly and authoritative presentation of the topography of the new digital shoreline that will be invaluable to his fellow faculty.
Roger McHaney's concern in this book is primarily for the future of the public universities that constitute the bedrock of US higher education. He has provided us with a lively yet scholarly guide to the changes that these institutions must make if they are to attract today's tech-savvy millennials to their campuses and offer them engaging programs. There is no time to waste. As he recalls, we tend to overestimate the importance of new trends in the short term while underestimating their longer-term impact. It is already later than we think."-- (03/01/2011)

"The New Digital Shoreline is a fascinating overview of where education is heading. Parents, teachers, and everyone else involved in learning would be well-advised to read this book."-- (09/01/2011)

"Regardless of whether higher education institutions want to face it or not, the wave of millennials is arriving at their footstep with backgrounds and needs very different compared to any other generation that have entered college. McHaney helps academic advisors navigate their way towards finding the best ways to reach and support this new student population. Readers do not need to have a high level of knowledge about Web 2.0 and its history. The author explains these aspects in the beginning sections of The New Digital Shoreline in a manner that is straightforward and easy to understand. Once a solid understanding about the latest advances in technology has been established, McHaney then describes how these evolutions have shaped the expectations and actions of millennial students... Academic advisors who are lost as to where to begin to incorporate technology into their offices will find The New Digital Shoreline valuable."-- (03/01/2012)

"The New Digital Shoreline's exploration of millennial learners and the evolution of educational technology and pedagogy is relevant for both face-to-face and online educators. McHaney believes higher education's "long statistical tail" may increase the market for distance learning, especially offerings by reputable universities and professors, leading to increased competition based on niche factors and costs. McHaney states, 'It is almost certain that, in decades to come, our linear educational systems will be replaced with nonhierarchical structures marked by self-directed, individualized, and customized learning experiences that draw on multiple resources'. Key insights for educators can be found in the author's examination of the inextricable co-evolution of society and education. McHaney succeeds in grounding each conversation with practical advice on how faculty can adapt to technologies, instructional strategies, and students found on the new digital shoreline of higher education."-- (03/01/2016)

"Explores such topics as social media and learning, engaging the "tech savvy millennial" in the classroom, and the impact of e-readerse and tablet computers on the future of the textbook."--The Chronicle of Higher Education (04/22/2011)

"The New Digital Shoreline: How Web 2.0 and Millennials Are Revolutionizing Higher Education offers a fine survey of the complex effects of Web 2.0 on higher education, documenting forces that educators need to know about to modify interactions with students and peers. From understanding how the population of the new Web is different with different expectations to understanding the new mind-set of Web 2.0, this is packed with details supporting a reinvention of higher education to meet these new perspectives - a support which goes beyond just adding new technology to the learning mix. Higher education collections must have this new approach!"-- (07/01/2011)

"This book is phenomenal. I mean, easy read, fantastic structure and meaningful reflections."-- (08/01/2011)

"This book is written in a very direct, conversational style that is easy to read and explains why we need to rethink how we approach teaching and learning in the light of technology and learner change and how we might do that... This is an excellent book for those of you who have just arrived at the shoreline and are peering out at the horizon with trepidation. It should be given to colleagues who need to be persuaded to join those of you paddling out there and can be used when considering curriculum review or assessment alternatives."-- (11/01/2011)

"The book offers brief, insightful analyses of several features of the new digital shoreline: ways that digital technology and social media are changing the character of higher education teaching; key characteristics of today's students (digital natives); a catalogue of devices, platforms, programs, and applications with relevance for teaching; ways that digital natives learn; and guidelines for next steps to take on the way toward basic proficiency in teaching for the digital age. McHaney's book can serve as a useful guide to digital immigrant faculty who seek to obtain a green card in the digital age. It might also prove useful for doctoral students preparing for a career teaching in higher education."-- (07/17/2013)
