        The term “baby boomer” describes people born within the 19-year period after the end of World War II. It derives from the __1__ that occurred in many Western countries, such as the US and Canada, during that time. The term sparked the trend of giving generations specific names. The generations following the baby boomers were given alphabetic designations like Generations X, Y, and Z, respectively. A new naming system, however, seems to have arisen since the latest group has been __2__ Generation Alpha.

Perhaps the most defining feature of this generation is the prominence of technology. This is the first generation to come after the introduction of the iPhone. __5__ earlier generations, there will not be any Alphas who will know a life that is not significantly influenced by digital technology. While there is a lot of speculation about the future of Generation Alpha, keep in mind that Generation Beta is just around the corner.
