Generation Alpha are not only today's primary-age school students, they represent the future and provide a lens through which we can look to the next decade and beyond. By 2030, the oldest of them will have moved through their teen years to reach adulthood. By the middle if this decade, Generation Alpha will be the largest
generation globally. They will live for longer and will be more culturally diverse compared to the former generations. Their technology makes them the most
globally connected generation ever. It is essential that educators effectively equip them to thrive in rapidly changing times, and empower them with learning skills for a multi-career future.
