India’s Minister for Human Resources Development (HRD) Kapil Sibal has called upon Indian academicians to get ready to meet the demand of GenNext who would ask for everything online. He made the call while delivering the inaugural address at the Educon 2011 on Friday in Dubai. Dubai Knowledge Village partnered with Sakal Media Group of India to organise the annual conference on higher education that facilitates dialogue among stakeholders in the education sector as part of an objective to shape India’s higher education policy. He said that the definition of generation is changing with the time. Now, a generation changes every six years, instead of the usual 25-30 years, due to the advancement of technology. “I call myself from the Hard Copy generation, now there is a Digital World generation. Soon you will have the Video Natives – the YouTube generation. The Video Natives are going to be very smart and very impatient. Thus we need to change to meet the future requirements,” he said.
