Net generation disappearing?

In a recent research the Canadian British Columbia Institute of Technology surveyed a random sample of over 400 students to determine wether these students exhibited the characteristics that have been attributed to this generation by people like Don Taspscott, Marc Prensky, and Neil Howe & William Strauss, and others. Schulmeister opponed already against the lack of empirical evidence for the existence of such a generation.

The research shows that on the characteristics there are hardly significant differences.

The research suggests that generational differences are not the issue. Contextual issues such as the nature of the program are more important considerations when making decisions about the integration of learning technologies.

More research after the cultural contextual aspects, age and other variables will be necessary to generalize these claims.
