This practical, innovative book helps trainers cut through the jungles of their own generational learning habits and clear a path to the emerging generations of learners. Shows how to take the differences between the Baby Boomers and the so-called "Nintendo Generation" (linear vs. random access, graphics-oriented vs. text-oriented, learner-centered vs. trainer-centered, and so forth) and how to apply these differences training situations in a direct, practical manner. The book presents hundreds of tips, tricks, and simple techniques for designing and delivering training that will engage the younger generation.
