The future of education for 21st century learners hinges on the employment of instructional designs that fully reflect how today’s students learn. Current learning theories do not adequately address the changes that have taken place in students’ schemata due to the affordances of technology. This article elucidates how students’ enculturation into a media-rich environment has influenced both their social practices as well as their cognitive processes. Specifically, it identifies these cognitive changes as social-connectedness and cognitive-connectedness schemata (SCCS), and delineates six structures of these new schemata. The article also presents findings from research that implemented this SCCS instructional design model.
