Join Dr. Jean Twenge of San Diego State University to explore new strategies for reaching the iGen/smartphone generation.  

Traditional-age college students are now considered the iGen (born after 1995), the first generation to spend their adolescence with smartphones. iGen’ers spend more time online and less time with each other in person, are growing up more slowly as adolescents, and are more extrinsically and less intrinsically motivated, necessitating new strategies for reaching them in the classroom.
