Generation Alpha Characteristics

This new generation of kiddos has already experienced a lot. And they're brand new to the world! This generation is set to be known for its independence and advances in the use of technology. Some of the Generation Alpha babies were born before the COVID-19 pandemic, while some were born during the worldwide coronavirus outbreak. While the full effects of the pandemic are yet to be completely studied, the effects of social isolation, interruption in school, and the transition to and from virtual learning environments are just a few of the things that current Gen Alpha kids have already experienced. 

We don't really know what these kids will be like, but we're pretty sure they're going to change the world, and all for the better!
