From Harvard Business Review: Children today, those born after 1995, are seeing a world that looks substantively different to them than the world did to members of Generation Y during their formative years. I’ve discussed how the global financial crisis and mobile technology have catalyzed the formation of a new generation. Because this new cohort is concerned about sustainability and living within finite limits, I call them the Re-Generation. Clearly the experiences these Re-Gens are having in school are also influencing the ideas they’re forming. And, although there are some encouraging signs of change, several major challenges stand out from my ongoing discussions with today’s 11-13 year olds.
