District 86 and District 181 Community Speaker Series Presents Dr. Jean Twenge

Understanding iGen: 

How to Harness the Positive Trends & Mitigate the Negative Ones

With generational divides wider than ever, parents, educators, and employers have an urgent need to understand today’s rising generation of teens and young adults. Born after 1995, with social media and texting replacing other activities, iGen spends less time with their friends in person – perhaps why they are experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. But technology is not the only thing that makes iGen distinct from every generation before them; they are also different in how they spend their time, how they behave, and in their attitudes toward religion, sexuality, and politics. As this new group of young people grows into adulthood, we all need to understand them because where iGen goes, so goes our nation—and the world.
