Generation Alpha, written by Mark McCrindle, Ashley Fell, and Sam Buckerfield, shares insights and answers teachers and parents need to help 21st century kids thrive. Generation Alpha covers children born between 2010 and 2024, who are living through an era of rapid change and a barrage of information – good, bad and fake.
The authors interviewed thousands of children, parents, teachers, business leaders, marketers and health professionals to deliver parents and educators everything they need to know about Generation Alpha, including:
- Understanding and empowering this generation
- The significance of technology
- How to get education right for them
- The future of work
- Their consumer habits and their role as influencers
- Where and how this generation will live as adults
- The importance of mental and physical wellbeing
- What their future looks like
For parents, teachers, and leaders of Generation Alpha looking for guidance on raising and educating the current generation, this book is for you (Hachette, 2022).
The College was presented Generation Alpha at a recent Principal’s conference, and it is available for any interested teachers or parents to borrow from the iCentre now.
