Thinking of a Change: Health Education for the 2020 Generation
Lohrmann, David K.
American Journal of Health Education, v42 n5 p258-269 Sep-Oct 2011
In his March 2011 AAHE Scholar presentation, the author suggested several possible innovations in school health education that, if initiated, may better meet the needs and interests of two youngest generations--Millenials and 2020s. In this article, the author assesses the status of health education in schools, enumerates the characteristics of the youngest generations of learners, and explores ideas scanned from eclectic fields such as the cognitive psychology; neuro-linguistics, brain chemistry and advertising; media literacy; business human resources; and video gaming. He also discusses some possibilities for changing school health education in order to better meet the needs of the 2020 generation. (Contains 4 figures.)
