Generation Z blazes its own learning trail: See technology a part of everyday life

Generation Z blazes its own learning trail: See technology a part of everyday life | Sink or Swim....digital learning | Scoop.it

"Generation Z (those born from the early ’90s to 2010) approaches everything a little bit differently. Otherwise known as the Net Generation, this group of Canadians were the first raised in an established online world with tech tools and gadgets. In fact, they cannot imagine a world without them. This means they can absorb information at rapid speed, simultaneously text, swipe and curate playlists, all while Googling their way out of any situation. To them, technology is not a means to an activity, but rather a seamless part of everyday life."

Gen-Z Trusts Mobile, Social Content More Than Other Generations Do

Gen-Z Trusts Mobile, Social Content More Than Other Generations Do | Sink or Swim....digital learning | Scoop.it

Members of Generation Z, those now age 18-23, tend to be indiscriminate with  their media choices and are more likely than other generations to embrace and  trust online communications such as social and mobile media and email, according to a report by Forrester Research.

 

Raised in the age of technology, Gen-Z audiences know the world only as a  digital one—where they can connect anytime, anywhere, and to anyone. They will  likely be the first generation to consume more media online than offline,  according to Forrester's report.

 

Moreover, Gen-Z audiences are often distracted with multiple forms  of media: 84% multitask with an Internet-connected device while watching  TV—using on average 1.5 other Internet-connected devices (e.g., laptops and cell  phones).

Below, additional findings from the report titled "How To Build Your Brand  With Generation Z," by Forrester Research.

John Pearce's curator insight, April 13, 2013 5:59 AM

Yet another article that backs up the thinking that tablets are rightly or wrongly making a difference to how young children interact with their world. The fact that they are growing up in world where screens are so ubiquitous begs the question regarding whether access to them should or indeed can be restricted and if so under what circumstances. The bigger question however might be more about whether through youngsters growing up with screens may mean that the novelty value we adults often ascribe to screens may fade sooner for them than for we adults. It may be that because of this youngsters may self regulate their interactions.

Mary Kate Lavin's curator insight, February 6, 11:34 AM

Students are learning with the iPad because of  the kinesthetics of touching the screen.  This goes for children as small as 2 years old.  Students understand how to use a touch screen and are learning through touch.

More guidance on how to properly and effectively Gen. Z-ers and why it is the way it is. The take-away? This fun-loving generation is no-nonse when it comes to the importance of honesty and transparency in advertisements targeting them. As a brand upholds their brand values, they should also strive to include these users in Instagram and Facebook contests.
