Dear Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, Gen Yers … Can We Please Move On?
[Sept] 10, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes
While we continue to read about Gen Xers and the rest, we are beginning to hear more people saying that it's not about the generation or being a digital immigrant but rather changing individual styles. Luis Suarez says, "It's the balanced mixture of working styles the ones that are going to shape up and define "The Future of the Workplace". Not the generations. They have got much more important things to tackle than just trying to divide themselves." And don't just shrug and say you're a "digital immigrant," says Peter Kent, who calls the attitude "learned helplessness." And Lisa Nielsen says, "As we enter into the next decade of the 21st century, it seems we have turned a bit of a corner. There is less tolerance for educators who do not believe it is their responsibility to move their teaching out of the past."
