Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hayles is a rare and welcome voice.... A leading writer on the interplay between science and literature." -New Scientist "One book by Hayles is the equivalent of any five by the competition." -Science Fiction Studies "Hayles has once again produced a compelling synthesis of highly complex, widely scattered discourses.... The achievement is formidable." -American Book Review "Hayles's work is admirable in its open-ended, open-minded engagement of a continuously changing intellectual and artistic field." -Electronic Book Review"

This is the first book I've read that cuts to the heart of what I feel are the central issues we need to think about as teachers of students who are born digital. Not once does it lament the fact that students of this generation are not like we were; it simply accepts that our students, like the technology we all now employ, are constantly in a state of change (like we were at 20 years old). It then provides concepts derived from a wealth of research that are useful for both scholarly inquiry and pedagogical approaches. This is a book I will draw upon in both my dissertation and in designing my next course. I imagine (and hope) these ideas will be more commonplace in the next couple of decades, though I doubt there will be many who will articulate the problematics laid out here with such grace, patience, clarity, and skill. If you teach and you want to understand your students and the digitized world they (and you) live in, read this book.[...]

In this book, Hayles revisits a lot of what she has written before. Her views on the attention span of millenials and beyond are astute, but there's not much by way of new material in this book.I am a fan of Hayles, so that's kind of hard for me to say. She basically recommends that instructors at the college level meet computer-generation students where they are--that is--in a place of competition for their attention, divided and multiplied tasking, and a questionable ability to deeply consider, think, analyze, and otherwise closely "read" materials they encounter. Using the techniques these students are accustomed to to engender "real" learning can be challenging, but doing so is necessary to the success of university instruction. I think you could probably wait or not read this one and figure these things out for yourself if you are a college instructor.
