After nearly a year’s worth of research focused on millennial students, much of what I found highlighted a subject that is largely misunderstood and self conflicting. Despite this enigma, one fact is undisputable, their predilection towards emergent technology and the communication that it affords. Much of this communicative technology is proffered as immediate, asynchronous, collaborative and multi-sensory. Millennial students, those born after 1982 have become prodigies of this tech environment. They are connected 24/7, a connection that allows unprecedented access to almost any word ever written. It should be noted that this technology has allowed millennials to multi-task, a trait that can sometimes be misconstrued as antisocial.
