Generation Z: The Dumbest Generation

Ratings: (0)|Views: 2,899|Likes:
Civic illiteracy is rampant to Generation Z. As their attention has been diverted to screen entertainment, they have forgotten the importance of reading. Also as their brain has been rewired by digitalization, they tend to have short attention span – a psychological ailment responsible for one’s focus. If these factors will be lost in Generation Z, it will be difficult for them to stay on course on their goals especially that undesirable circumstances may arise unexpected.

ackground of the Study
Today¶s children are growing up in a very different world. In a world that is almostundesired by most of the manly authorities.Generation Z is the best classification of kids born in this world between late 1990¶s andthe early 2010¶s (Fleming, 2010, ¶ 3). Also dubbed as the µNet Generation¶, kids born in thisspan of time are specifically attributed to the rampancy of wireless technologies like cellphoneand the World Wide Web. Other connotations for this latest generation are µ@ generation¶ byRory Winston and the µDigital Natives¶ by Marc Prensky.
Controversy
Generation Z members have been adapting to this wired world. They have learned toprocess information more quickly through virtual games. It has even taught them how to practicedecision making (Tapscott, 2009, p. 291). Even internet has taught them how to multitask whichis very essential in the modern world. With these breakthroughs, Zers have acquired µfastresponse time¶ that enables them to respond rapidly and µAttention Deployment¶ that enablesthem to shift attention from one task to another (Prensky, 2005, p. 6).Despite of this, Generation Z still holds the title as being the µdumbest generation¶.Dumb, as defined by the New Webster¶s Dictionary (2004), means µinarticulate¶ or, in thepopular context, µstupid¶. Because the modern world has provided them a world of information attheir fingertips, they have forgotten the value of struggle and synthesis (Tapscott, 2009, p. 231).Because of emerging digitalization, Generation Z¶s mind has been manipulated to the extent thatsociety itself dubbed them as the generation of lost childhood and the generation of ambitionwhile lacking hard work (Barcelon, 2010, ¶ 1).
