Transcript of Leading Gen Y Teachers

Leading Gen Y Teachers Generation Y
(a.k.a. Millennials) Facts and Figures Typically cited as births in the 1980s and 1990s (although some historians reference dates as early as mid-1970's and as late as 2001). In U.S. is sometimes known as the “Echo Boom” (1982-1995). Members of the generation coined the term Millennials, in reference to the students who graduated from high school in 2000 and beyond. Shaped by familiarity with communications, media, and digital technologies. Heavily influenced by the political conditions of the late 20th and early 21st Centuries.
