Learning Characteristics of pos-Millenials

Some interesting insights here:

From the article:

“As an overprotected generation, post millennials, are less likely to be independent learners and more likely to develop into conformist young adults.  Unlike generation x they are adept at group work and thrive in a highly structured environment.  Some key learning indicators of this generation are: (1) impatience and short attention span, (2) high reliance on technology for access to information and learning, (3) diminished verbal communication skills, and (4) skilled multi-taskers.  Adaptations to these learning styles, and in some way deficits, can help this generation of students gain a greater amount of success in the classroom.”

Does your teaching experience seem to support these ideas?
