Abstract A generational cohort is the term used to describe a group of people born within the same time span. Having experienced similar life events during their formative years, these individuals tend to have similar attitudes, adaptabilities and traits. In this paper we look at generational groups, contemporary cohort changes and how technology-savvy Millennial students need a different approach to learning. We also discuss a ubiquitous school system which has the potential to provide individual support in future schools. It offers every child a personal educational assistant - a discreet, unobtrusive helper. The educational assistant will be available through the computer network, both within the school system and externally through the Internet. It will be able to traverse time and space, and be of assistance at any time and any place.
