In 2017, how to increase intuition for entrepreneurship in innovation process? Especially for generations to come, who are the current students, now faster and natively digital because they are born with a phone or a tablet in hand? They are fully connected and always active on social networks, which diverts their attention during the course. Thus the simultaneous use of several media captures their attention, that is the reason why we have to change the way of teaching with variations of rhythm if we do not want to be faced with an army of computers that ramparts between teacher and students… Beside their attention time is reduced and consequently the lesson has to be more fractionated. We introduce in this paper how to increase the digital natives’ attention with a new teaching method we named: “Intelligence, Creativity & Intuition”. Our method is based on three learning channels: Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic.
