Appealing to the Snapchat Generation: Using Technology to Break Through Students’ Eight-Second Information Filters

Join us to explore methods and mediums of communication alongside current technology that can break through Generation Z’s eight-second information filter, using current generation theory, market research, and trends in higher education.
