Net Generation (includes Millennials)

As we plan information, library, and technology services, it is important to understand the generation referred to as “Net Gen” or Millennials, those students who have grown up with technology. Our program, beginning around 2005, provides insights into this group with particular reference to shaping new kinds of services related to teaching and learning. We also emphasize that some of the behaviors associated with Net Gen students have been adopted by older groups, and that ease with a wide variety of technology skills is essential to all graduates today, no matter what their age or discipline. These students are content creators and our programs need to support their needs through provision of networks, hardware, software, multimedia capabilities, and learning environments.
