1.0 Abstract
This research is about Gen Y. Gen Y is born in a technologically generation and we want to know how much reliance does Gen Y have on technology and the way they communicate, their learning styles, their personal expectations and group interactions. In this research, results have shown that Gen Y have high reliance on technology as they are born in such era. Besides, they also favor a lot on social media in their communication as many of them have a social media page like Facebook or Twitter. They prefer lecturer to get straight to the point and use digital equipment in a class and they also have high expectations of themselves as they are a group of people who are eager to work hard to get something they want. They prefer to work in a group rather than individually so that they can discuss about the problems or questions with others. I have also found the main result for this research objective which is about how Gen Y Students approach their studies. They will be doing their own thing in the class instead of listening to the lecturer. They dislike traditional teaching methods as they find it dull. By using technology and digitals in the teaching methods, it is possible to motivate them to focus on the subject. They also prefer lecturer to get straight to the point instead of giving long explainations.
