Excerpt:

While traditional textbooks remain ubiquitous in schools, teens in this survey now report that teachers are using more educational technology tools to facilitate learning, with four in 10 citing the use of Smartboards, digital textbooks, online videos and learning websites such as Khan Academy and Skillshare in the classroom.

Gen Z also has different learning style preferences from past generations. While they are very into DIYL (do-it-yourself-learning), these students also embrace peer-to-peer learning, with 80 percent reporting that they study with their friends and classmates. Fifty percent said they enjoy the element of leadership it presents, and 60 percent reported that it gives them the perfect way to exchange ideas and consider new perspectives.
