Education and the Internet

“You won’t get a person’s attention by copying from a book to a chalkboard.”—Mike Roberts (Educom Vice President)

The Internet makes it easy for any person to find instruction on any subject. But the most important thing we can learn from the Internet is that we must evaluate all information we read, watch, or hear, regardless of where it is. It’s not difficult. “Working out the social politics of who you can trust and why is what a very large part of our brain has evolved to do.”
