Well put, Woo : teach deep critical approaches.

Woo Young said it in qoutes::

We are drowning in information but starved for knowledge.

John Naisbitt

Information literacy can be defined as ” a new liberal art that extends from knowing how to use computers and access information to critical reflection on the nature of information itself, its technical infrastructure and its social, cultural, and philosophical context and impact” (Shapiro & Hughes, 1996).

She went on to stress that, as the internet is there for students with the computer equipment,  we must meet the the need for students to be taught to “read between the lines”, applying critical skills to the source as well as the content, and seeking a range of reliable sources to check any text’s claims.

I think this holds, no matter how technology changes.

Well, there’s that topic wrapped up!
