As of today, it is fairly safe to say that most people have heard the term “Millenial” to describe the generation of people who became adults around the turn of the century. But how many people have heard of the “iGeneration”? Or even further, the “Generation Alpha”? Probably not many. But there is great interest in trying to predict the manner in which our rapidly shifting society will act in the future and part of this prediction comes from categorizing generations.
Most of the interest in future generations revolves around the impact of technology. iGenerationers can be roughly described as the teenagers of today. That being said, we all know why they can be called the iGeneration (aka Sceenagers). But what about the young kids of today? The future Generation Alpha? As Australian generational researcher, Mark McCrinde stated during an interview with the New York Times, “[They] will be the most formally educated generation ever, the most technology supplied generation ever, and globally the wealthiest generation ever.”
Our Creative Hero Ambassador, Shareese Davidson, is a member of Generation Alpha and wanna know what this 5-year old is doing?
Building solar-powered houses out of Brackitz!
It is fascinating to see how social issues such as the energy crisis are combining with imaginative play in the young minds of today! We have a generation of problem-solvers and solution-seekers developing in our homes, which is what makes them our Creative Heroes.
Shareese's mom loves bringing STEM education toys to her home to give Sharesse time to invent and create. Shareese is described by her mother as a bright and energetic girl who will be attending kindergarten in the fall. She has an imaginary friend named “ZuZu” and ZuZu has her own room in Shareese’s life-sized dollhouse. Shareese says that her Creative Hero is her auntie, who works as a pastry chef. Shareese accompanies her at the bakery and enjoys creating her own tasty treats at home.
