The average age for college students is rising. At both Harvard and Notre Dame the average age is [sic] now 27. The University of Phoenix, which offers both online and traditional degree programs, has an average student age of 35-37 (n.a., 2009, pg. 1, para. I).
We currently live in the Information Age. Apparent age gaps exist in our current age. Baby Boomers generation are those born between the years of 1946-1964, Generation X are those born between the years of 1965-1985, and Generation Y are those born between the years of 1978-1990 are all trying to co-exist with the most recent Generation Z.
Generation Y and Generation Z both have a major advantage on the previous generations. They were born into an age where computers were used more often and they were fortunate enough to become experienced with programs and software. The Baby Boomers and Generation X are not so lucky.

[...] Now in past teams, I have actually worked with people who loved the same sex, I myself would be in that category, some people were alright with it but others had a problem; no matter what, gay straight, or bi-sexual. What have you someone will always be judgmental of another's sexual preference in the work place. Some will even be harassed to the point that they quit the job. It's not fair, and according to the United States there are no laws at current time, that cover sexual orientation Discrimination in the workplace. [...]
[...] The Baby Boomers and Generation X are not so lucky. Members of former Learning Teams found Microsoft software programs like PowerPointTM and ExcelTM to be very difficult to use. The reasoning for their difficultly is the lack of use and experience with the software. Inexperience with software and other computer programs is just the beginning. The Information Age has developed a foreign language. Since the Information Age wants everything now, the language is jumbled letters that create anonyms for phrases. [...]
[...] Both of these types of diversity reflect the inner workings of team members and create ideals or motivations that can hinder the team or take them far beyond their capability because of positive reinforcement and strong core values. One factor that needs to be associated with both of these types of variables are that neither of these can coalesce without one major factor being put in place in the group setting and that is understanding and acceptance of differences between values and attitudes.
