The internet is true

The world is already moving towards an internet focus for all information consumption and an understanding of how to use this resource must be an integral part of our education system.  The government today is currently spending most time providing support for online safety concerns such as cyber bullying, stalking and illicit materials.  These are all incredibly important foundational skills, but there needs to be more attention paid to the skill of filtering information from the internet.  The ability to apply principles of critical thinking to raw information is crucial to know how to filter and organize it according to its authenticity and source.  Equipping all our children with the ability to determine a well-structured lie from a poorly written truth will be one of the best investments we will make in the information age.
