I've just read an article about FIVE Habits of Mind (and the defined success indicators) demonstrated by students who engage in an online environment. 

In my view and to summarise the habit striving for accuracy, it is interesting how after some time, students as e-Learners will demonstrate this mannerism  effortlessly because they know their work is and will be viewed instantaneously by many others both locally and globally.  I guess having  the power and control to personalise information as long as the set criteria has been met is an added bonus for e-Learners.

I've stumbled too on another video called learning and motivation in the 21st century.  Like the habits of mind, it is about preparing students for their future (not our past).  As I am unable to embed the clip, here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_6GUx1Zx0w
