Who Is Generation Alpha
The first generation that will live to see the Twenty-Second century is now school-age. These children, born after 2010, will be the most technologically literate generation of all time. They were born into a world where smartphones, tablets and the internet were part of everyday life and prevalent in educational strategies. Generation Alpha, also known as iGeneration or Generation Glass, will need an education to match their excelled technological abilities.
Learning with Technology
This generation will enter the classroom expecting a learning environment that mirrors how they’ve been raised: tablets and smartphones, content streaming, and virtual connections to family and friends. Their foundational skills include the autonomy to search, learn, and create programs that function. They don’t just learn the theory, they learn how to implement ideas on their own. They need teachers to instruct lessons in ways that cultivate these ingrained skills, as well as guide them to learn interpersonal skills and connect beyond social media.
Castle Learning Can Help
Castle Learning allows teachers to create student centric assignments where students can work online to practice, master and explore their skill sets. For Generation Alpha, this means their foundational skill sets will be validated as they work through assignments at their pace, with content designed to meet their individual needs. The teacher will be able to facilitate the lessons, monitor progress instantly, and review data to continue to design assignments to meet their learners’ requirements. There’s no need to overhaul a teacher’s entire way of teaching when Generation Alpha enters the classroom because Castle Learning is already paving the path for teachers to meet their needs today.
Castle Learning is committed to evolving to meet the needs of the next generation of students. Current educators have found the tools provided very useful. They continually offer new content and options to help teachers ensure students reach their highest potential.
