Information as such can only be passed on........ it needs to be converted into knowledge before it can be used. Information is converted into knowledge by relating it to oneself, one's experiences, environment and other surrounding information. For instance, the fact that the ambient temperature is 40 Deg C remains merely a piece of information, but when it is related to the other information that any temperature above 30 Deg is hot, then we know that the weather is hot. When it is related to another information that in this place, the temperature rarely goes above 35 Deg, then we get the knowledge that the weather has become extremely hot. When it is related to the information that most people are feeling highly uncomfortable at this temperature, then we have the knowledge that it has become unbearably hot..... etc.etc.
Trust you would agree with my above understanding. In short, information becomes knowledge when it leads to a judgment or conclusion (or even doubt or suspicion) so as to be made use of in some other context or purpose.
