Defining Multi-tasking
  • A mode of operation offered by an operating
    system in which a computer works on more than one
    task or application at a time.
  • The act of juggling several tasks at once, as
    opposed to working from task to task in a linear
    fashion.

13
MILLENIALS ARE SPECIAL
  • Special - Product of a dramatic birth-rate
    reversal. Older generations have instilled in
    Millennials the sense that they are vital to the
    Nation.
  • Generation of wanted children
  • Central to their parents sense of purpose
  • Many Boomer parents delayed having children until
    financially secure

14
MILLENNIALS ARE CONFIDENT
  • Optimistic/Confident - Good news for a Millennial
    good news for the Nation! 9 in 10 Millennials
    describe themselves as confident, happy, and
    positive.
  • Raised by parents believing in the importance of
    self-esteem
  • Optimistic yet practical
  • Hopeful of the future
  • Enjoy strong connections with their parents

15
MILLENIALS ARE ACHIEVING
  • Achieving Higher school standards and more
    accountability.
  • They are very much into setting and meeting goals
  • They have the benefit of the best-educated
    parents
  • They are the smartest ever with rising
    proficiency in math, science and standardized
    tests
  • They are subject to mandatory testing

16
MILLENIALS ARE TEAM-ORIENTED
  • Team Oriented - Millennials believe in their
    collective power. Group learning is emphasized
    in the classroom.
  • They are used to being organized in teams
  • They have spent much of their time working and
    learning in groups
  • They have established tight peer bonds
  • They are inclusive

17
MILLENIALS ARE SHELTERED
  • Sheltered Spawned by the youth safety movement
    after events such as Columbine, child-abuse in
    the media, child safe devices and rules.
  • Baby on Board signs were created for this
    generation
  • Their well being has dominated legislation (child
    restraints, home products, movie/video ratings,
    campus security)
  • Boomer parents tend to be over-protective

19
MILLENIALS ARE CONVENTIONAL
  • Conventional Millennials support the idea that
    rules can help. They take pride in their
    improving behavior.
  • They identify with their parents values
  • They are rule followers (if we give them clear
    rules they can understand)
  • They accept authority
  • Whatever passive approach to dissent
  • They feel close to their parents

20
Growing Up Messages
  • Greater exposure to and experimentation with
    grownup activities
  • Be smart you are special (Nickelodeon, Baby
    Gap, Sports Illustrated for Kids)
  • Leave no one behind (taught to be inclusive and
    tolerant of other religions and sexual
    orientations)
  • Connect 24/7 (learned to be interdependent-on
    family, friends, and teachers)
  • Achieve now! (right college, right preschool)
  • Serve your community think of the greater good

21
  • The number one thing to realize with the
    Millennials is that as a whole they reflect much
    more parental perfectionism than any generation
    in living memory. Colleges and universities
    should know that they are not just getting a kid,
    but they are also getting a parent.
  • William Strauss
  • Author, Millennials Rising

22
MILLENNIALS ARE PRESSURED
  • Pressured They are pushed to avoid risks, study
    hard, and take advantage of opportunities.
  • They are pushed to succeed
  • They are pushed to attend college
  • They are pushed to choose careers that pay off
    nicely
