While you have certainly heard of Millennials and Generation Xers, what about iGen learners who are currently sitting in your classrooms? They have different motivations, attitudes, and ways of interacting with one another that may be challenging for today’s teachers. This presentation will explore opportunities for classroom innovation and interaction and encourage teachers to rethink their practices to meet the diverse needs and aspirations of this generation, which in turn may lead to longer engagement with language study.
