Pedagogy for Generation Z

"Gen Z vibrant entry into educational spaces challenges the learning environments to respond adequately through the innovation of new learning tools, teaching styles, and unlimited access to resources. Pedagogies now are focusing on leading the change in how learning takes place. Learner-centric environment, constructivist, inquiry-based learning spaces dominate the arena of education. Thus researches need to address the magnitude of the ever- pressing need to bring in effective pedagogical approaches to dominate and invade the educational scenarios.

21st century learners are digital natives exposed to world of education which is dynamic and adorned with digital learning tools. Technology supported pedagogical innovations interspersed with digital competencies keeps them motivated. Research in this area is pivotal in order to enable these futuristic learners to embrace learning environments which are experiential."
