Boomer Generation: This picture represents
the Boomer Generation in two forms: 1. the
fact that a large amount of babies were born
around the same time, and 2. the drawing
represents the art of that era.

Net Generation: I liked this picture because
felt that it did a good job of representing how
this generation has been exposed to
technology from the time they are born.

This photo captures the fact the Baby Boomers are reaching retirement age. Although
they may actually choose to retire from their career, they may continue to work at
some other job.

I thought the cartoon clip shows how even young students from net-generation are familiar
with using Web 2.0 tools.

Net Generation - This photograph made me reflect upon last week's discussion about how technology furthers the education of today's student well beyond the walls of the classroom. With technology, the world is literally within reach to our students.

Boomers - I chose this photograph in response to Learning Activity 2-A-2: Boomer Traits. This image portrays the three generations: Boomer, Generation Y, and the Net Generation. I liked how the Generation Y was represented, sandwiched between the way they were raised and the unknown technology realm. In my opinion, their facial expression depicts their skepticism.

Okay, I'm a Boomer and some of my best and life-long friends are Boomers. I couldn't resist posting my Boomer Friends' photos that I retrieved from Facebook.

In my view, these photos are artifacts that suggest that in contradiction to the opinion that some Boomers are slow to embrace technology, or don't embrace technology; there are Boomers who are all about technology. My two Boomer life-long friends below not only were at Woodstock for all three days of nothin' but fun and music, but now use social media, such as Facebook, and are fluent in technology applications such as Adobe Photoshop. Therefore, I am compelled to challenge the argument that there is a generation gap between all Boomers and the Net Generation. Some Boomers are, shall we say using the lingo of the Sixties: groovy!

Net Generation
This is a Tron hoodie. Tron was a huge movie when gaming first started to evolve. I picture Net Generations wearing hoodies to conceal themselves from outsiders.

As the Net Generation enters the workforce they bring with them unique character traits that will reshape American business.
