In this paper we discuss the new generation of workers, the Homo Zappiens. The Homo Zappiens is led by new skills: skills to quickly scan content, skills to multi task, skills to process discontinued information and he is used to non-linear learning. These skills can be related to ways we learn and it seems that the Homo Zappiens has developed more natural strategies for learning. These skills and competencies that Homo Zappiens is developing are crucial for future citizens of the information and creative society and society should adapt to this with new ways of learning, like blended learning, non-linear learning and authentic learning.
