Make your own list of valuable study tools
Use all three methods of learning in interaction
A recent Barnes&Noble College research on generation Z studying preferences reports that more than a half of students expect their learning become more fun and bring hands-on experience.
In the chart below, you can see the usual GenZers’ methods of learning. Apparently, classroom lectures’ listening is the weakest side of Z-learners. This new generation strives for active learning and sometimes forgets that passive activities add up diversity to their studying process.
Thus, you should combine all methods of learning and stay patient with those that do not include game elements.
Don’t show your tech advantage over professors
Don’t make social media stand on your way
Older generations call GenZers “screen addicts”. The whole communication of this generation goes through social media networks and chat messengers. They spend too much time online allocating it more to entertainment than studying.
For Z-learners, it becomes a huge issue since they can’t focus well having so many distractions around. That is why it’s important for students to disengage themselves from social media levity and develop a systematic approach to studying. There are a few apps GenZers can use to improve their focus on current college tasks.
Funny but today we need apps that can block other apps, social media, and websites on all our devices. Freedom is one of such apps. It is designed to increase the focus of students and office workers. I also recommend Any.do as a task manager that can help Gen Z students tackle due dates of any assignments.
What irritates me as a blogger is that even our generation of millennials accuses GenZers of their online dependence and entrepreneurship. We forget that our digital era raises children of new outlook and cravings.
That’s why self-reliant and independent GenZers need a bit of our help and experience to achieve their goals easier. The rest they can google themselves.
