Generations (ShiftEd 21 #6)

December 2nd, 2010

While we have highlighted only one major “starter” resource for the topic areas so far, the generations are such a complex area that we thought we’d suggest two:

1.     The Pew Internet & American Life Project provides continuing research into how the generations compare in their lives online.  Take a look at the Generations 2010 chart on the Pew site and consider whether it reflects your experience.  And be sure to click around and explore the other information the site offers about generations.

2.     Get the free download of Eric Greenberg’s Generation We, a book we reference in Shift Ed, and explore the other Millennial generation resources on the site.

How are differences among generations reflected in education in your community? Comment and share your perspectives. Here. also, is an introduction to the Millennials from the Generation We site:
