Understanding child development is vital to developing high quality learning experiences. However, its only one piece of the puzzle. We also need to make sure that experiences are individually appropriate and culturally appropriate. It is the aspect of cultural appropriateness that this piece is focused on.
Each generation has its own unique culture. Their experiences as a group bind them together with beliefs and attitudes. These are not taught in traditional child development classes that are focused on universal stages of development. Understanding Generation Z from how they view the world to what they like, can dramatically change your teaching practices.
