The old education process was learning by memorization, the facts were not changing rapidly. This model doesn't work today as the facts and world is changing too rapidly. What I think education needs to shift to is evaluation of content and consideration of sources. how do you tell that the data presented is credible? How do you know the data is trustworthy? I have met George and MaryLynn of BIGG Success so I feel confident in making the recommendation. Likewise with the other links shared today. I have met them (like John Robison) or watch and read their posts over time to build up confidence in the quality of their info.

What do you think? Do you validate your sources in a similar manner?
