I also realized the difference between Google generation (young) and older generation. Especially, Google generations are more eager to use technology in their daily life. Also, they are can be adapted to new technologies successfully in short time. Nice to hear the point I agree with the idea that young people do not know how to evaluate information, find right information and have poor digital literacy.
I believe internet is a nice space that enables and encourage participatory, social and collaborative learning with wikis, virtual games, YouTube, blogs, etc. I like Shirky ideas because he talks about how people can use internet to support, and help each other. Moreover, he encourages people to be active users to make positive impacts for communities instead of being passive in front of television.
