Yes I do think that generations can learn from each other but saying that youngsters dont seem to have the time or the patience teaching their elders especially where technology is concerned. Perhaps because they feel that the older generation will spy on them to see what they are up to on the internet!
I'm an examiner, and one of the questions on one of the papers I mark, this year was 'The generations can learn from each other. Do you agree?'
Out of the hundreds that I marked, the number of candidates that DIDN'T say that the elderly needed to learn how to use technology from the young were in single figures.
I think it speaks volumes if even know-it-all teenagers think they have nothing else to teach us oldies, other than how to use flippin' Insta, an iPhone or the use of the cloud. By the time I'd marked hundreds of these answers I really started to despair about the younger generation and as a teacher, that is NOT the way I usually feel!
