  • This presentation will provide information on the group that makes the millennials, a description of how they differ from other generations, identify how they use technology for formal and informal learning and how they impact the learning environment.
  • So let us ask this question who are the millennials? Sandee (2008) found the millennial generation (born between 1982 and 2003) experienced a shift back to a child-centered social context. So if you were born before 1982 then you are definitely not considered to be a millennial. This is just one form of describing how students involved in the technology have impacted the way our world will change. Articles written describes the millennial as our future generation to change forward us to the future. “The millennials are savvy web-researchers. They will comparison shop and look for opportunities to “test drive” programs. Offering podcasts of excerpts from instructor presentations will be a good marketing device for this generation” (Sandee, 2008, p. 22). The Millennails generation is ready to embark in the fast world, embedding technology as being part of their daily lives. “Although these characteristics may provide great advantage in areas such as their ability to use information technology and to work collaboratively, they may also create an imbalance between students’ expectations of the learning environment and what they find in collages and universities today” (Oblinger, 2003, p. 44). Educators need to adapt to their style of learning and get on board to facilitate what students needs. How do these millennials differ from the baby bloomers to the generation x? Oblinger, D. (2003) Boomers, gen-xers, and millennials: understanding the “new students“. Educause Review 38 4 38-47 Sandee, C.

  • Different generations that include the baby boomers born between 1943 and 1960, generation X born 1961-1981 and the millennials born 1981-2003. The Baby Boomers generation were well nurtured and home oriented generation. Sandee (2008) states that Baby Boomers enjoyed affluent and nurtured lifestyles (especially compared to that of their parents’ youth phase) supplied by single wage earning fathers and stay-at-home mothers. Children became the central focus of the family. Generation X were considered to be the survivors of the generation and introduction of computers was established. “Generation X were the resilient “survivors,” who, though somewhat cynical, pessimistic, and suspicious, found a way to successfully negotiate their challenging social environment” (Sandee, 2008, p. 16). Considered to be known as the latch-key kids because due to working parents. “Many members of Generation X were the infamous “latch key kids” who stayed home by themselves after school until their parents returned from work” (Sandee, 2008, p. 16). Unlike the millennials where “millennials are perceived as having inflated self-esteem, unrealistic and grandiose expectations for prime work, promotions, and rewards, and a general lack of patience and willingness to drudge through unglamorous components of work” (Thompson, 2012, p. 241).

  • If you stop a millennial generation and ask what a computer is to them, they probably would say that the computers is an essential part of their life. “Students have never known life without computers and the internet. To them the computer is not a technology- it is an assumed part of life” (Oblinger, 2003, p. 40). If a computer is unavailable a millennial would be sure to have a mobile device handing for usage. Staying connected is an essential part of their lives. They need to be able to communicate with others in any form. “Students stay in touch, via multiple devices, as they move throughout the day. Cell phones, PDAs, and computers ensure they remain connected any place and anytime” (Obligner, 2003, p. 40).Oblinger, D. (2003) Boomers, gen-xers, and millennials: understanding the “new students“.

  • Millennails choose typing over writing. Due to poor penmanship and understanding on what they write. “Students prefer typing to handwriting. Many admit their handwriting is atrocious. Penmanship has been superseded by keyboarding skills” (Oblinger, 2008, p. 40).Oblinger, D. (2003) Boomers, gen-xers, and millennials: understanding the “new students“.

  • “Millennials are perceived as having inflated self-esteem, unrealistic and grandiose expectations for prime work, promotions, and rewards, and a general lack of patience and willingness to drudge through unglamorous components of work” (Thompson, 2012,p. 241) Millennials don’t have the tolerance of the baby boomers or the generation x since technology media is fast, millennials expect the environment to work fast as well. “Having grown up in a customer-service culture, today’s students have a strong demand for immediacy and little tolerance for delays” (Oblinger, 2003, p. 4).Oblinger, D.

  • Millennias don’t seem to view television anymore, when they have the accessibility of mobile devices. Their interest are more broader and easier to locate what they want to watch. “In recent years, the number of hours spent watching TV has declined, being supplanted by time online” (Oblinger, 2003, p. 40).Oblinger, D.

  • Ever heard the cliché “different strokes for different folks”, well formal learning is so much like the cliché depending on the type of instruction the individual is more geared too. According to Career Education Corporation “millennails use technology regularly for formal and informal learning. They are able to stay connected using the internet through accessible technology media through smartphones, wikis, video sites, and social media.” First of all what are formal and informal learning. Formal learning is where the teacher has control of objectives and goals being taught as per informal learning is where the learner sets his or her own learning objective and goals. “Informal learning in past generation often came through interest-based pursuits-after-school sports, music and dance lessons, and interest groups at the local community center, but now, informal leaning has the added component of social and networked learning – both in person and online” (Career Education Center, 2010a, p. 1). No matter what choice whether formal or informal learning multi-media assists through instant messengers, mobile learning, email, podcast, wikis, video sites, social networks, online chats or forums, web surfacing and/or blogs the endless of learning is never ending.

  • Millennails are tech savvy they blend in the technology world better than when computers were first introduced to the generation x. “The millennials grew up with computers; they also experienced the rapid adoption of the internet, cell phone, and other mobile devices. They are a highly networked, connected generation and tend to be completely immersed in technology” (Sandee, 2008, p. 18). They are able to communicate their ideas, their thoughts and yes even answers to questions for assignments, quizzes and tests. They are more quicker and adaptable to changes quickly. Instant messaging enables them to collaborate rapidly and effectively. Sandee, C. (2008) Boomers, xers, and millennials: who are they and what do they really want from continuing higher education?

  • Every way you turn whether you are in a grocery line, mall, waiting to enter a movie theater you see people with a mobile device. They may either be watching a movie, looking at news, recapturing sports action, reading a book or maybe logging in to the a universities home page checking on a discussion board assignment. “With a mobile device, learners are more likely to have the option of mobile access to electronic learning materials, resources and people. Mobile learning promises to deliver closer integration of language learning with everyday communication needs and cultural experience Kukulska-Hulme diary” (as cited in Zengning, 2013, p. 44). This type of learning is easy and accessible for the learner.Zengning, H., (2013) Emerging vocabulary learning: from a perspective of activities facilitated by mobile devices. English Language Teaching 6 5 44-54. Retrieved from http://ehis.ebscohost.com.proxy.
  • Through email, the learner is able to collaborate effectively with peers and instructors to any problems they might have with their assignment. Feed back is given in written form and effective. “Email is widely used in everyday life as well as in teaching and learning contexts, for example, online classes, face-to-face classrooms, and in hybrid learning environments. In fact, use of email technology has been studied in a variety of contexts” (Chanmin, 2008, p. 188).Chanmin, K., (2008)Using email to enable e3 (effective, efficient, and engaging) learning.

  • What is podcasting to the millennials? “Any kind of audiovisual media offered or broad- casted over the Internet. Podcasts in that sense have become a common part of our life. Even more; to publish a video or audio file on the Internet is no big deal any longer, it can be done in a breath by anybody using social media sharing platforms such as YouTube. Podcasts are an essential part of the Web 2.0 phenomena” (Grigoriadis, Stickel, Naster & Ebner, Schon, 2013, p. 24). If a learner misses a live chat or class podcasting the student is able to view missed lecture. “In practice, an advantage of the method of podcasting lies in the possibility for working students to participate in the lecture activities without physical presence and to enable them to complete in some cases the lectures with good results even without visiting the classroom” (Grigoriadis, Stickel, Naster & Ebner, Schon, 2013, p. 24).

(2013) Automated podcasting system for universities International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning 18 1 24-32. http://ehis.ebscohost.com.proxy.cecybrary.com/
  • First of all what are wikis? “ Wikis are free writing spaces where students can compose their thoughts in a collaborative manner. Wiki pages are rarely organized by chronology. Instead they are linked by context and as well as categories and concepts that emerge in the authoring process. They allow links going out and coming in” (Olliges, 2009, p. 14).How effective is Wikis where education is concern? How does this help students become active learners? “Wikis are useful for teaching collaboration and content. Teamwork features include collaborative page editing, file sharing and a complete audit trail” (Olliges, 2009, p. 14). Millennials using wikis to collaborate through groups is an effective learning experience that is embedded in their daily lives. “Frequency of feedback increased as teachers wanted to ensure students could correctly answer questions based on the content they were being taught” (Thompson, 2012, p. 241).Olliges, R., (2009) Wikis, screencast, podcasts, Oh my! Effective use of wikis, screencasts, & podcasts in educational settings Journal of Philosophy & History of Education 59 14-19 http://ehis.ebscohost.com.proxy.Thompson, C.

  • Understanding information is easier when a person is able to see and hear information being presented through video. Having the accessibility of just searching for topic in hand. According Career Education Corporation (2010b) “People watch 2 billion videos a day on the most-visited online video site and upload hundreds of thousands videos daily” Learning through video just assists the learner to understand concepts easier. “Because students are using these sites on their own time for entertainment and informal learning, having students use them during formal school time opens more options for them to use them as a learning tool and facilitates responsible use” (Career Education Corporation, 2010b).Career Education Corporation. (2010b). The Online Video Generation [text].  Retrieved from https://mycampus.aiu-online.com/courses /EDU639/u1/hub1/hub.html
  • Social networking has become the most popular way of communication to Millennials. “This generation uses social networking sites (Facebook, mySpace, YouTube, etc.) to a high degree” (Sandee, 2008, p. 241). The growing of introducing social network has grown more in the education setting and teachers are using social networks to enrich learning.“More and more schools are beginning to use out-of-the-box social networking sites like Ning.com and, dare I say it, Facebook, to help teach their students the network literacies that are required to navigate these new connections” (Richardson, 2010, p.11). It is an easier way of staying connected with the outside world. “This kind of community building across interest groups, demographics, and nationalities has transformed the way we connect with strangers, loved ones, friends, colleagues, and even ourselves” (Kist, 2010, p. 2).Kist, W.

  • Whether themillennials are asynchronous or synchronous learner, learning through online chats or forums are an essential part of their learning. Since millennials have little or no tolerance for delays. Live chat and forums are ideal to enrich their learning delivering the collaboration of teachers, classmates and other supports needed. “Frequency of feedback increased as teachers wanted to ensure students could correctly answer questions based on the content they were being taught” (Thompson, 2012, p. 241).Thompson, C. (2012) Managing millennials: A framework for improving attraction, motivation, and retention The Psychologist Manager Journal 15 4 237-246. Retrieved from http://ehis.ebscohost.com.proxy.
  • According to Richardson (2010) blogs, as they are known, are easily created, easily updateable Web sites that allow an author (or authors) to publish instantly to the Internet from any Internet connection. Allowing students and teachers to interact through conversation and publish information.Richardson, W. (2010). Blogs, wikis, and podcast and other powerful tools for classrooms. (3rd ed.). United States of America: Corwin. Retrieved from http://wow.coursesmart.com
  • Millennials preference for learning is geared toward teamwork, experiential activities, structure and abundance of technology. Millennials seem to think that teachers are not equipped with the correct information to teach technology. “Many students find the use of technology in schools to be disappointing. Their teachers’ use of technology is unaspiring. Students report seeing better ways to use technology than do their teachers” (Oblinger, 2003 p. 39). Meaning that teachers need to step up their game in order to keep the millennial students active participant in the learning.Oblinger, D. (2003) Boomers, gen-xers, and millennials: understanding the “new students“.

  • Regardless whether you were born during the baby bloomers, generation x and millennails. There is one thing every generation must understand. Advances of technologies need to be embraced and accepted. Those not born in the millennails need to get on board to be able to compete with millennails individuals who for one have the skills and abilities to be better where technology is concern. Teachers must understand that millennails learning is better achieved in adapting technology media into their teaching. Understanding who the millennails is essential to make accommodations to support the millennial learner, understanding that they are a different generation and posses different characteristics when it comes to technology. Using media tools affects how learning needs to be achieved today. Walker, B., (2008). Who are the millennials? a. k. a. generation y.
