This is a picture of why education needs to change. Although I do NOT agree with everything in this short video, such as that they are receiving a "better" education than the Boomers, there is much food for thought.
Research tells us that the Millennials, or generation WE, as they say in this clip, are beginning to look more like the Boomers in character traits than they look like the Gen X'ers. That's a good thing. They are hard working, idealists, they like to "own" what they work on, want to know "why" something is important and more! To reach the Millenniala, or Gen Me, try designing a collaborative unit with student choice embedded. It should be "their" assignment, not yours.
