How are technological advances within these areas viewed, and/or utilized differently between generations?
As you read through the articles in our textbook, I encourage you to ponder how you would answer the following questions for yourself, AND how an individual of a different generation (could be older or younger) would respond.
- Would you rather shop on-line, or drive to a brick-and-mortar retail store to physically shop? What influenced the reasoning for your preferred choice?
- When you go to a restaurant to have a meal, are you more comfortable using the auto-ordering/payment option through the mini-computer at your table, or do you prefer to interact with the waiter/waitress throughout your dining experience? What influenced the reasoning for your preferred choice?
- Consider what you do for entertainment. How has technology impacted your response?
