Tape Decks to TikTok: How can Gen X educators teach Millennial and Gen Z brains?

PowerPoint may have been cool in 1997, but an entirely new educational approach is needed for a generation that has never known life without a smartphone. The technology gap between Gen X and those who belong to the Millennial and Gen Z generations is the equivalent to computers that were once the size of a car are now able to fit in your hand and follow your every waking moment.

Join Dr Anthony Marinac on a journey through the generations as he discusses how those of us who once played Pac-Man and Space Invaders can connect with and teach students who live their lives online.
