Kids labeled 'generation next' before they grow up
By MARTHA IRVINE (AP) – 1 day ago
CHICAGO — They aren't even out of grade school. But already, people are trying to name the youngest up-and-coming generation, and figure out who they might be and how they might be different from their predecessors.
At a loss for something more original, many call them Generation Z, because they follow Generations X and Y.
They've also been referred to as Generation Net or "iGen," since they've never known a world without the Internet.
That's the one point most everyone can agree on — that they are the tech-savviest generation of all time, so much so that even toddlers can maneuver their way through YouTube and some first-graders are able to put together a PowerPoint presentation for class.
