Young people say that technology has a bigger influence on their learning and development than social relationships do.
That finding is the result of a survey by nonprofit Growing Leaders.
The organization’s researchers asked 2,264 adults between 18 and 34 years old about the role technology has had in shaping their adult life, especially related to learning.
The survey concluded that 70% of millennials say they learn more information from technology than they do from people.
This is a major contrast from previous generations: only about half of adults over age 45 said the same.
The survey basically reveals that our society has progressed into a new reality.
With most young people opting to “learn from their screens”. then parents and mentors have a unique and uphill role of helping them interpret the information they’re learning.
