Episode 831. Steve Robertson: A Day in the Life of an Alternative Education Innovator
 

“I think that where we are right now we are seeing that the generation that’s coming of age truly doesn’t know what it is they want to do. And there are many reasons for that. I can totally understand that, but if they position themselves in a way that they can test drive a number of different things, just to see how it fits, just to see how that makes them feel, then I think it is really a powerful way to begin the journey for them. So obviously we specialize a lot in that process. And I really believe that so much of that happens outside of school.”

Gen Z & The Social Media Epidemic

Posted by Steve Robertson on Apr 2, 2019 4:00:29 PM

Q: What do parents need to know about the Social Media Epidemic and what can they do to help their teenage Gen Zer navigate this new social landscape?

  •  A: We are in the midst of a Social Media Epidemic and it is dramatically influencing the Gen Zers (born 1996-2010) that are living in our homes and has changed the social landscape.
Generation Z:
  • Get their info from YouTube or from their peers versus mentors or parents
  • Communicate digitally 35% of the time.
  • According to a  new study, today’s teens care much less about driving, scoring a fake ID, or dating than their 1990’s counterparts.
  • They prefer to stay home, hang out and scroll through social media.

You’ve heard it before: Generation Z will be different. The generation admires YouTube celebrities who’ve acquired fame and fortune through monetizing their channels and entrepreneurs who’ve made a good living from one big idea. Gen Zers have grown up in a time when technology is a tool instead of a toy and when peers — not elders — are their mentors.
