The class of 2021 is the first class to have grown up in time where they’ve always had Google. Most of them have had mobile devices for the last five if not the last ten years of their lives. They don’t remember a time where they didn’t have mobile apps, instant messaging or text. The Gen-Z student is different.
How is your college or university engaging these students?
A good mobile app strategy and a good mobile app provider is a great start. Modo Labs creates engaging mobile apps for higher education. Their apps aren’t a luxury, a bonus or an after thought. Their apps are a lifeline, an engagement tool and one of the best ways to communicate with today’s Gen-Z student.
You can meet the Modo Labs team at booth #825 in the exhibit hall at EDUCAUSE. But more importantly, Modo Labs is offering a handful of great sessions primarily focused on the changing needs of the Gen-Z student and how best to serve them.
The Modo Labs team realizes that many higher ed stakeholders have been in education 10, 20 maybe even 30 years. Today’s student and the communication tools available look a lot different than they did then.
