Those who know how to validate soft information vs. those who rely exclusively on others to solidify hard facts.
Those who know where to find information in new “hot” channels vs. those that only access traditional media .
Those who understand the current culture of informal languages vs. those that consider it solely slang and bad grammar.
Those who know how to get information to travel to them vs. those who still chase it.
Those who have the knowledge and skills to create and re-mix digital media vs those that only have skills to be passive spectators.
Those that understand learning is a continual process vs. those that view learning as a knowledge achievement.
