Centennials: The World Is Waiting!
Housand, Angela
Parenting for High Potential, v5 n2 p6-9 Feb 2016
Today's youth are connected across the street and across the globe in a web of communication like no other generation before. Generation Z, also known as Centennials, are considered "mobile-natives" and are even more technologically savvy then their Millennial predecessors. Nearly three-quarters of children own or have access to a smartphone and a whopping 92% of Centennial teens, ages 13-17, report going online daily. Thanks to Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, and a myriad of other apps, social media has transformed "how" people communicate, and the "ways" they acquire, create, and share information. No longer is technology merely a tool, it is "the medium" for attaining knowledge, collaborating with peers, exchanging ideas, creating products, and sharing knowledge and insights.
