Changes in technology and society present challenges for education systems around the world. A generation that has grown up amid rapid developments in technology is disposed to believe that change is the natural order of things, in employment as in other aspects of life. Retaining teachers and nurturing the next generation of leaders presents new challenges in such an environment. Although there is likely to be no simple solution, some pointers to effective strategies may be found through understanding and responding to the characteristics of the rising generation. As representatives of the retiring and advancing generations, the authors of this paper bring a personal perspective to the challenges and the potential solutions.
