Generation-Z, (born between 1995 and 2010) aka Gen-Z, Internet Generation or iGen, Nexters, or the Digital Natives - is the first truly digital and global generation that was born into a world with the internet, smartphones, and constant connectivity. As a consequence, they are known to spend more time with digital devices than with humans! Their connect with humans tends to be more ‘virtual’ than ‘real’!
Gen-Z responds differently to the traditional teaching-learning methodologies. Thus it is important to understand the most appropriate ways of delivering effective instructions that are aligned with the learning styles, values and goals. Educators, mentors and counsellors may accordingly embrace some newer methods of teaching, mentoring and counselling that are engaging and relevant to this generation of learners by shifting gears to Education 4.0 and Careers 4.0!
