  • 18. “As I reflect on my own digital media skills development, I believe it’s more important for institutions and organizations to pay more attention to a person’s specific skills and literacies rather than age or generation. I also am convinced that a person’s home environment, cultural experiences, and vocational success - more than any single demographic factor - will likely form their interests and skills in the digital world.” K.
