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.”
