Have a good day, everyone! Assalamu’alaikum!
The year of 2020 signifies an important transition in terms of how people communicate. Traditionally, people communicate by phone, or they meet directly face to face to have conversation. The transition can be seen from the way people use digital tools to communicate. The way people transfer and deliver messages can be in many forms. The messages can be in the form of audio or video, and they can also be in the form of pictures with texts.
The studies of cultures provide us many insights to ponder about the meaning of understanding people and society. We not only can learn our culture but we can also learn how to open our eyes and ears to understand how the cultures of other people beyond our nation. The notion of cross-culture understanding means that it teaches us to be more respectful toward the differences. However, the basic aspect that we need to consider is to allow ourselves to stand on who we are exactly.
Young generations today are, in many ways and layers, different from the older generation. The difference can be seen from how they express themselves in communication. They call themselves as the millennial.
If you are part of the Indonesian millennial, I invite you to share your perspectives about cultures of Indonesia and beyond. You can also talk about your opinion on the use of internet, such as Zoom, Google Meet, or Whats App, in communicating your learning materials and classroom tasks.
