The increasingly rapid development of technology has had a negative impact on generation z. This can be seen from changes in character and morals in Generation Z, so a shield is needed to form good character. One of the obstacles to the negative impact of technological developments on generation z is Islamic education. The aim of this research is to determine the influence of Islamic education on the character of Generation Z. The method used in this research is a qualitative method accompanied by field observations and written interviews with two groups of Generation Z with different backgrounds. The results of our research show that the Generation Z group who studied at Islamic institutions are equipped to face technological advances, environmental and moral changes. Islamic values are the basis for maintaining good character. Meanwhile, the Generation Z group who are studying general education or studying Islam basically tend to be carried away by the currents and waves of the times and the acceleration of technology which is increasingly showing its negative impacts. From the results of this research, it can be concluded that Islamic education has a great influence on character formation (noble morals) and can inhibit the negative impact of technological developments on generation z.
