So, who are the millennials anyway?

The Future Generation

I would have thought the Millennials were born in 2000 and beyond. Not so. The boffins have different names for these people and the best they can do for children born in 2000 or beyond are the Two Kays. According to those who know , the Millennials are coming into the workforce now and have a specific set of needs. They were born 1980 to 2000. These Millennials need a can-do approach and like team work. Children born from 1995-2010 are Generation Z and there is a really interesting article here to put them in perspective and look at their specific needs and skills sets. As a teacher, there is a wealth of information to help guide and enhance classroom practice. I have been thinking a lot about my year 8s and 9s. To me they are Millennials because they were born in 2000 and beyond. They are different from my older students. They respond differently and they need differing approaches so they can succeed and feel encouraged. I plan to blog about it because technology has been central to engaging and educating these students. They are new. They are different and they have an interesting way of going about their work. We are coming up to the end of the semester so now I feel I have observed them closely enough in order to make some good breakthroughs with teaching them. I’ll be back with some of my ideas. The more we share, the faster we’ll pool our knowledge to shift over to this new generation.
