InfoWhelm and Information Fluency

This is a pretty interesting video about the sheer volume of information in our world today, how it is growing exponentially and what this means to our students and to us, as educators.
Angela Maiers stated at a recent conference that students no longer need quick answers; they have Google in their pocket! They need to be incredible question askers and translators. “The world’s language is not a five paragraph essay. It comes in the form of images, music, art, and heartfelt emotion.”
We must teach kids how to be worthy of being listened to.
