The EPIC Generation: Experiential, Participative, Image-Driven, Connected
The characteristics of students of today were gathered from student outputs, key informants and literature regarding students' life style positioning and peculiar traits. From the data collected, key points were marked with codes extracted from the text and grouped into similar concepts. From these concepts, categories were formed, which became the basis for an acronym to describe the peculiar characteristics of today's generation. At saturation point the acronym "epic" was chosen to convey the four emergent themes which may literally mean, "extending beyond the usual or ordinary especially in size or scope". Indeed, the present generation is of unprecedented size in its interconnections via World Wide Web. Secondly, this generation is fittingly called Epic Generation because of its peculiar characteristics: experiential, participative, image-driven, and connected.
