Technology has enabled our students to have much better access to information. It is easier now to look up information, or ask someone. As educators, it is even more important now to teach students how to ask questions, to look for information, and to evaluate the credibility, source and value of the information. Knowing where to look, what to look for, and what questions to ask is a key digital competency.
"Getting information from the internet is like drinking from a fire hydrant" (attributed to Mitchell Kapor, quoted by Eric Schmidt).
