Engaging Generation Z in the Classroom

Today's students are different.

Think you’ve figured out Millennials? Now there's a new generation on the scene.

iGen, also referred to as Generation Z, are born between 1995 and 2012. This generation has never known a world without the Internet and barely remembers a time before smartphones. iGen learners consume information through different channels; meaning, they are less likely to read and are more challenging to reach with traditional teaching methods.
