HTH: What We Know About the Generation After Millennials
Jason Dorsey leads an organization that conducts research on Millennials and iGen/GenZ. In this Ted Talk, he presents a really helpful framework for understanding today’s teenagers. Rather than considering them “tech savvy,” he calls them “tech dependent.” He makes the audacious claim that “7 year-olds in your neighborhood have more in common with a 7 year-old in India than a 65 year-old in their own country.” As youth workers, we need to grapple with the reality that our students are not just “tech savvy,” they are “tech-dependent.” This is a great video to watch with your youth leaders and then prayerfully discuss the ways you can faithfully minister to today’s teenagers in their particular context.
Hope This Helps!
