Meet Generation Z: No Hitting; No Name-Calling–Justin Beaver; Chris Brown

Gen Z is the first generation to be truly a global one.•Social media has made it easy for them to take up social causes. Not only are the music, movies and celebrities as global for them as they have been for previous generations, but through technology, globalisation and our culturally diverse times, the fashions, foods, online entertainment, social trends, communications and even the “must watch YouTube videos and memes” are global as never before.  Page 22 August 21, 2014 Young Observer Meet Generation Z By Sarah FellowsThursday, Generation Z is one name used for people born after the Millennial Generation. There is no agreement on the exact dates of the generation with some sources starting it at the mid or late 1990s or from the mid 2000s to the present day.mlkgallery_10 This week Young Observer gets up close and personal with this Generation who will be running the world two decades from now.GEN Zs Social media has led to a sense of social justice, justin-bieber-studio-instagram-1376664015-custom-0 larr_rwanda-88700473ddfff873d943583b05a5beb0fb58820a-s800-c15 before after hemp art B9kswhSCEAAdZ6p.jpg-large ‘Gen Z’ Gen Z more willing to splurge on health foods%0A%0A let american farmers grow hemp green&brown Hemp Farmers before after hemp art Everyone is looking for a hook.”[1] They define the Homeland Generation as people born from the year 2005 to the present day. In 2012, USA Today sponsored an online contest for readers to choose the name of the next generation after the Millennials. In the article, journalist Bruce Horovitz wrote that some might call the term “Generation Z” rather “off-putting” and a name that is “still in-the-running”.[4] Some alternate names were proposed including: iGeneration, Gen Tech, Gen Wii, Net Gen, Digital Natives, Gen Next, Post Gen, and Plurals.[1][5] In 2013, Jeanine Poggi reported in Ad Age that Nickelodeon channel is looking to serve a new breed of kids born after 2005 whom it dubs “post-millennials”.[2] In 2014, Pew Research Center sponsored a contest to name the next generation after the Millennials. Names proposed include: the TwoKays or 2K’s (born after 2000), the Conflict Generation (the generation that grew up during the time of the Iraq War and War in Afghanistan), Generation i (or iGeners and iGens), @generation, the Swipe Generation, the Tweennials, and Screeners.[6] iGeneration (also abbreviated as iGen) is a name that several individuals claim to have coined.

Why HempPsychology professor and author Jean Twenge claims that the name iGen “just popped into her head” while she was driving near Silicon Valley, and that she had intended to use it as the title of her 2006 book Generation Me but was overridden by her publisher. Demographer Cheryl Russell claims to have first used the term in 2009.[1] Songwriter and producer John Mayer attributes it to rap artist MC Lars.[citation needed]bl07_mavferic_col__1260541f Gen-Z-foodObama-MLK-Day-1 malala_2693021c Livinglongercostingmore Quotes Prohibition copy tumblr_lyuv2fQprh1qb4rk5o1_500 sudan2 Screen-Shot-2012-09-28-at-5.36.38-PM Saving passing the torch Gen Z Z -1 Matt Carmichael, a past director of data strategy at Ad Age, said in 2012 “we think iGen is the name that best fits and will best lead to understanding of this generation”.[1] In 2014, an NPR news intern noted that iGeneration “seems to be winning” as the name for the post-Millennials.[7] It has been described as “a wink and nod to Apple’s iPod and iPhone”,[1] while former Ad Age writer Matt Carmichael notes that the lowercase “i” in iGeneration “leaves room for interpretation” and “could be any number of things: It could be for interactive, it could be for international, it could be for something we haven’t thought of yet.”[7] The Pluralist Generation (also abbreviated as Plurals) is a name coined by marketing firm Frank N. Magid Associates.[1] According to Magid, the name “Plurals” reflects that they are the most diverse of any generation in the U.S.; Magid estimates that 55% are Caucasian, 24% are Hispanic, 14% are African-American, 4% are Asian, and 4% are mixed race or other.

Socialisation •Gen Zs are always connected in a near seamless cloud-based world of friends, data, and entertainment. •Gen Zs expect to be able to work, learn, and study wherever and whenever the what. •Their day is filled with images and news from around the world, often describing terrorism, the world recession, and climate change. •Due to the access to a constant barrage of global news, Gen Zs are more socially responsible than the generations before them. •They will take their gaming lifestyle with them into adulthood. •They are described as growing up too fast, and also not at all! They grow up fast because of their exposure to so much disturbing news, but they will remain gamers for a long time and want school and work to be fun. •Gen Zs are closer to their parents than the previous generation because they watch the same TV shows, listen to the same music, and play the same video games. •They have less need for direction because they have access to all the answers, especially for things they are passionate about. •Parents tend to build too much easy-to-get self-esteem in their Gen Z kids. •High self-esteem plus easy-to-use digital tools lead the Gen Zs to think they can do anything. •Gen Zs completely take for granted the amount of data that they have access to and the speed in which they can access it.

•The Internet economy, cloud tools, and crowd-sourced funding have allowed Gen Zs to become successful online entrepreneurs, from selling their original music, video, and text content to establishing startups like http://www.dispatch.io

The Generation Z Learner

•Because Gen Z is from the digital generation, many teachers incorrectly assume that ALL are “digital citizens” and are aware of online hazards, managing personal information online, guarding intellectual property, tech savvy, and so on. •Their brains are wired for the fast delivery of content, data, and images from computers, videogames, and the Internet. •Educators are increasingly bringing game design and game theory into education with continuous grading, continuous feedback, clear goals, rewards, challenges, etc. •Gen Zs are driven by graphics in learning. They comprehend complex graphics better than previous generations. •They very much dislike lecture-test classroom. •Gen Zs are constant multi-taskers. •The like to have random access to information, love to explore using their own routes, need graphics, want it fun, and instant feedback. •Their digital world can be customised. They want their education customised, too. •Researchers says Gen Zs are smart kids and will be smart adults who can deal with a lot of data and make decisions. •The classroom challenge is that students are digital and many teachers are analog.

•Old school teachers tend to not appreciate Gen Z digital skills or how their brains are wired.

•Old school teachers are not prepared to teach the “future content” that Gen Zs love. Future content includes software, hardware, digital, technological, social media.

•Teachers are at a disadvantage because they aren’t as comfortable with technology as their students are.

•Access to so much data makes Gen Zs go for the quick answer rather than longer problem solving. •Gen Zs often do not take the time to determine the reliability of information. •They must be taught to discover, curate, and manage information. This will be essential in the “idea economy” of the knowledge era. •Fluid Intelligence (problem solving) on IQ scores has been on the rise since the 90s. Game designers like to take credit because their multi-player, problem-based games went viral at the same time. •Creating “cheats” and hacking games are a sign of brilliance in the Gen Z world. This doesn’t reconcile with their education world. Teachers don’t reward short cuts. •Gen Zs become incredibly more knowledgeable about their passions than the generations before them because they have access to so much more information, and they can network with peers across the globe who have the same interests. •43% prefer the digital learning and find it easiest to learn from the Internet.

•Parents are taking more responsibility in their children’s education, and they want options and choices.

•The gap between what schools are teaching and the needed skills of the future is widening.

•The Gen Z world is increasingly collaborative, and their school projects need to reflect that. •Gen Z students need to be challenged with project-based, active learning to meet the demands of the future. Dangers for the Gen Zs •Recession, war, energy crisis, and climate change leave them in a world filled with uncertainties. •Gen Zs are described as too dependent on technology. •Cyber crimes like bullying, identity theft, intellectual property theft are a dangerous frontier that are still not policed or regulated very well. •The cost of higher education is becoming prohibitive. •Gen Zs need niche skills, but one-size-fitsall education is slow to catch up. •Some Gen Zs do NOT have access to the digital world. Socioeconomic position and ZIP code play a large part in this. •Gen Zs face health problems associated with sedentary lifestyles. •Other generations must deal with Gen Z’s’ changing (or lack of) interpersonal skills that are driven by advancing technologies.

Strangely Silent
One might expect the photographs and first-person accounts of such atrocities to arouse public indignation against the UN’s “planetary police,” just as the endlessly replayed videotape of the Rodney King arrest turned public opinion against the Los Angeles Police Department. Perhaps this is why the photographs have been all but invisible in the United States, and precious little media attention has been devoted to an examination of UN atrocities.
Village Voice reporter Jennifer Gould came across the accounts of the Belgian atrocities while doing an earlier story about sexual harassment of female employees at UN headquarters. “When I spoke with people at the UN, time after time I was told, ‘If you think it’s bad here, you ought to see what happens in peacekeeping operations,’” Gould told The New American. “I started looking into that issue and found that the abuses I reported were well-known and easily documented. They were all over the media abroad, and I was really surprised it hadn’t been written about over here.” – UN’s “planetary police,”

15 paratroopers were put on trial for other abuses during the U.N. mission, including torture, killings and the mock-execution of children. Most were acquitted. But the photographs, which came to light in the last two weeks after two former paratroopers came forward anonymously, bolster accusations that Belgian soldiers tortured and killed civilians during the mission.

In the process, we helped create a new monster named “ISIS.” If it had not created itself, we most certainly would have in vented a new enemy to keep our warmongering industry thriving. What are we doing in Afghanistan, for example? Why does Obama have troops there? Could it be because of the multibilliondollar opium trade? Do “our” leaders get a rakeoff on heroin?

Yes, Americans, you and I are the world’s greatest suckers. The military-industrial-banking complex has a good customer. They sell billions of dollars of tanks, ships, guns, trucks, subs, bombs, ammuni- tion, uniforms, shoes etc to the federal government, which always pays the bill. If not cash, there’s Roth- schild’s Federal Reserve, which will cheerfully loan all that’s needed. Just add it to the national debt, which is currently some 18 trillion bucks. READ MORE
