Technology Culture Shock: Generation Z Students’ Experience with a Host Country’s Technology Deficit
How are we, as study abroad professionals, preparing students to study in non-traditional locations with less-developed technological access? Join us and learn about the phenomenon of “technology culture shock” as it relates to Gen Z – often referred to as the generation that is “all technology all the time.” We will first examine Gen Z’s use of technology abroad, and then outline opportunities for study abroad professionals to better prepare and manage the expectations of these students as they pursue international education in countries that have technological challenges.
