Abstract

New approaches to learning essentially necessitates the use of social media and technology to be efficient, however there is also a need for interpersonal relationships to be successful. The use of technology has dissuaded millennial students from engaging with the ordinary means of learning and acquiring business skills. Research shows that current millennium students are losing the social skills required to be successful in business due to the advancement of technology. Whilst technology is highly embraced in educational settings, it is hampering rather than enhancing the social skills required to be successful entrepreneurs. Most millennials social interactions are through a seven inch screen and this has become a serious impediment to standard teaching practices, and fostering a need for more creative and innovative teaching.
