6. I would say that a highly competent educator, when selecting teaching strategies for different generations, purposefully focuses their resources so that everyone is interested in learning. Regarding Generation X, these are very hardworking people who may have difficulty with new technology, but most of them understand that technological innovation is the key to success. Generation Y may be a little lack of self-discipline, but if the goals will be clearly defined, then success is inevitable. The main thing is to include creativity. Perhaps if a member of generation Z needs to learn a foreign language, they are likely to turn to a native speaker in a language forum or give preference to a learning application such as Duolingo. In any case, the learning process can be made interesting by combining different methods and tasks, not forgetting to take into account the peculiarities of different generations.
