This study provides empirical evidence that an information-age mindset exists; it is not necessarily age-specific; and it appears to be related to both the student’s interaction with a digital environment over time, and the success or failure while online. Eight of ten identified information-age mindset attributes are significant, and represent values and beliefs, physical behaviors, or emotional needs of students interacting within a digital learning environment. The following findings relate information-age mindset and online learning: (a) the stronger the information-age mindset, the more blurred the line between consumer and creator of information, and the less successful the student in distance learning courses (regardless of age); and (b) the stronger the information-age mindset, the more likely the student uses Nintendo-style problem-solving strategies online, and the more successful the adult student in distance learning courses.
