Generation Z lives and breathes in the digital world which makes them rely heavily on technology. They experience a world that operates at speed, scale, and scope. Therefore, it is easy for them to develop initial facilities with advanced digital tools that enable them to be self-reliant and collaborative. These backgrounds have influenced the way they learn in class. This paper aims to present what factors can affect the acquisition of knowledge by Gen Z and which forms of knowledge acquisition this generation prefers. The survey will inform them what their favorite approach is utilized in the classroom teaching process, the best learning tools to make it easier for them to understand the learning material, the most effective independent learning process they choose, as well as other important information. The results of this research will provide potential benefits for increasing student engagement and for understanding the teacher's role in the process. This lesson will involve all students majoring in Information Technology at Maranatha Christian University to fill out a survey which will be shared online via social media.
