Who are the Alpha Generations? (Photo: iStock) We use the term Alpha Generation for the youngest generation of the Z generation (born between 1995-2009). The alpha generation was first used by Mark McCrindle, a social researcher in 2005, for members of the age bracket who discovered / discovered the world between 2010-2024. They are the generation whose every member is born in the 21st century and who can preserve the 21st century.Among the generations prior to the Alphas, we also find the X, Y and Z generations, which, when the Latin alphabet is gone, is a good sign of the end of something, and the alpha name is the beginning of something new.

What are their characteristics?

Although the traits and habits that define each generation are best defined when that generation reaches adolescence or young adulthood, there are a few noteworthy things that Alphrbrow already knows. "This new generation is going to be the most common of all generations so far that in their early years, which are defined in terms of development, they may not be all biological parents," said Elf Carlson, a professor of biology. This means that in the case of the Alphabet, the single-family model and the mosaic-family are becoming more common. In this generation, there will be a greater proportion of children who they grow up in urban environments, move their families more often, their parents move more frequently.According to Elwood Carlson and William Frey demographers, the latest generation has to face greater economic inequality than members of previous generations. "Households have a much broader income range than any previous generation," Carlson said. And according to McCrindle, since the Alphabet is largely a generation of Y-generation parents, the one whose childhood is shifted down, they generally earn more than their parents' generation, and more generally, they have two incomes. McCrindle thinks so the alphabets will continue to learn more than their parents, start working, and stay at home before they become tired.Another element that helps define Alphas is technology. 2010, the start of the Alpha generation, is also the year of the iPad launch and the birth of Instagram, which in that year became the word of the year. Technology is almost everywhere in the lives of the Alphasians, digital literacy will be essential for them, and games and learning are moving more and more to tools than ever before, but experts say that According to McCrindle, this generation is also called the "glass generation", which means that more will be involved in the interaction between the screen and the with their hands on their wrists, smart glasses on their faces, etc. For Alphabets, technology is no longer something you can choose for yourself, but rather a tool for extending your identity. physics, because it's more creative for them. Thanks to technology, this generation will be able to spend even more time on buying, doing housework, cleaning, Thus, the Alphas can have more leisure time than the previous generations. According to experts, this generation will still have more time to spend on things that they are working on, or just to drop new things because of the harshness of their studies. According to Franke, it may still be possible for them to learn in ways other than traditional education, thanks to technology, and this approach may further increase the tendency to become free and self-reliant.

What comes after Alpha?

Even though there will be few children of the Alpha generation for years, we will be ready to see who will come after them. Between 2025 and 2039, members of the Beta generation will be born, and if the professionals remain in the Greek capital, they will be followed by Gammak and the Delta. However, until the second half of the 21st century, we are not here yet, so it is time for us to think about what label the next generations will receive. (VIA)Related links:
