Public Speaking in an Electronic Age

From deep in the heart of Gen Y in higher ed now means rethinking how I teach public speaking, though with deeply mixed feelings about this. Do I teach to the new, more visual, more “parallel” (rather than linear) thinkers? Or do I try to drag them to the 19th century way of thinking, as Kathleen Jamieson would have us do in Eloquence in an Electronic Age. It’s a puzzle that I constantly turn over in my head.
