Abstract

Education in the millennium requires strategies and adjustments in the preparation and implementation of the teaching and learning process. The situation that surrounds the world of education also changes because of the strong influence of digitalization in all fields. Therefore, one of the educational strategies for the millennium is the need to develop digital narratives in the education process itself. Because the millennials rely heavily on digital technology, millennial education achieved through a pattern of technological determinism. An education system is a design in a teaching approach that adapts to learning styles and media technology so that it becomes more familiar and following the current culture. Digitizing the education system, as intended in Digital Narrative, will be in vain without a change in the mindset of all stakeholders in the education world. Therefore, in the millennial generation learning effort, the first step needed is to develop an educational system instrument, including learning strategies, which depart from the digital mindset. The next step is to integrate all these educational instruments into a technology-based education system. This article was prepared to discuss and criticize millennial education strategies with a digital narrative approach. The discussion was conducted qualitatively by referring to some theories and libraries.
