Hi everyone

I thought some of you might be interested in this article about the latest generation - Generation Edge.

Generation Edge follows on from the generation dubbed theMillennials(those born between 1981-1994).

I think the article is worth a read, even though it is focused towards research and researchers. It outlines aspects of this generation which teachers could find useful.

The article can be found here: http://www.research-live.com/comment/close-to-the-edge/4009930.article

    Thanks for sharing this, Nathaniel. While I'm sure we are all a little wary of generalising too much around any group of students, what's interesting here is the way in which our environments are changing as they are and the way prior knowledge that our students bring in may not be what we are familiar with.  Articles like this are useful reminders to test our assumptions about young people, talk with them, get to know them, and weave what we learn into what happens in school. Cheers!
