Right now, we’re experiencing a fundamental change in how humans experience life — and how they learn.
That's because there are two types of people on planet earth today:
- The first are Native Analogs. These are Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers born anywhere from the 1940s all the way up to the early ‘80s. Today, they range between the ages of 40 and 75+, and make up approximately 136.8 million Americans.
- The second are Native Digitals. These are Millennials and Gen-Zers born between the early 1980s to as recently as the 2010s. These demographics are around 35 years of age on the high end today, down to as young as 6 years old, and make up approximately 140.1 million Americans.
The fundamental difference between the two, however, is not age (which is what the “Millennial vs Baby Boomer” debate is often reduced to), but a definition of reality.
The aim of this mini-book is to help educators and parents understand just how powerful of a shift this is—why a Native Analog teaching system is failing Native Digital students, and how the legacy education category is three generations away from being rendered obsolete.
In this “mini-book” you will learn:
- Why there is a Grand Canyon-sized chasm between what Native Analog educators know and what Native Digitals want and need to learn.
- The problem with being three generations away from Native Digitals having the power to design legacy education curriculums.
- What the Netflix movie 'Don't Look Up' highlights the failures of the education system as people try to make sense of the cataclysmic digital shift happening in plain sight.
- How the atomization of education will increasingly cause students to seek out teachers who have done the thing they themselves want to do.
- How Native Analog educators can best facilitate Native Digital learning, and what tech companies are already doing to equip learners with the expertise and skills they need to thrive.
Jam-packed with incredibly valuable and actionable insights, this short “mini-book” shares the shortcomings of Native Analog education and how to prep students to be a leader in the Native Digital transition.
