Howard Rheingold: Teaching Critical Thinking in Age of Digital Credulity

Howard Rheingold: Teaching Critical Thinking in Age of Digital Credulity | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it

By HOWARD RHEINGOLD August 21, 2014 - 8:12am 


"I’ve been writing about digital media for nearly 30 years, and over that time, I’ve been asked over and over again by readers, critics, scholars and myself: “Do these personal computers, digital networks, webs of unfiltered information, mobile attention magnets do us more good than harm — as individuals, families, communities, and societies?” I have come to believe that the answer is: “It depends on how many people know how to use these technologies to their own benefit and that of the commons.”

Excellent resource for EVERYONE online!! In today's age of information, it is no longer an issue of recalling information. "Just Google it" is much more than simply a catchy phrase. Nearly every bit of information can be obtained in seconds, somewhere online. The issue has become finding the proverbial "needle in the haystack".

It has become mush more important to understand how to filter the good from the bad and the ugly.
