Who are they?

Millennials are the most studied generation to date. They are born between the years 1982-2000. Eighty million people in the US are put in that category. They are considered multitaskers, they adapt to switching tasks quickly. Millennials are more caring, community oriented, and politically engaged than previous generations. They will continue to influence education and the world on a day to day basis.

How they impact us

Millennials have many different characteristics than the generations before them. Being born into a society completely different than the previous group, millennials have been exposed to technology since they were babies. They are, "2.5 times more likely to be an early adopter of technology than any other generation," (Futurcast). With spending trillions of dollars each year, Millennials also impact our economy in a huge way.
