3 Insights From This Episode
1.Understanding and Connecting with Teens & Young Adults
It is no longer accurate to refer to Generation Y as one collective generation. The Millennials born after 1990 are a whole new batch of students.
They are being called Generation iY because their life is dominated by the iPhone, the iPod, iTunes, etc. They’ve been identified as the Digital Generation, Mosaics, Techies, Millennials and Screenagers.
They are the talk of Human Resource professionals and newspaper journalists, they are the prize of their parents, and they are the market share every retailer covets.
Because of the pervasive technology available at our fingertips, there is a new generation of students called Generation iY. They’ve grown up online and been impacted by the iWorld.
They have been over-exposed to information far earlier than they are ready, yet have been under-exposed to real-life experience until it’s often too late.
Over-exposure / under-exposure produces what is called “artificial maturity.” Students find themselves, stuck, not self-sufficient to move to the next stage of life.
3.Teach Your Children With Images
We live in a culture rich with images. From phones, digital cameras, TV, movies, video, and hundreds of visual electronicedevices, we can’t escape the power of the visual image – and most of us don’t want to.
Images have significantly shaped this generation of students and leaders. Therefore, we must change our teaching methods if we want to increase student engagement and student success.
