Inside Higher Ed has a piece on information literacy or rather the lack thereof. There’s a distinction between possessing technical facility and possessing critical thinking and/or research skills. Why most people fail to see that has always boggled my mind. Just cause someone can use a cellphone doesn’t make critical thinking obsolete. I suspect you could get a chimp to learn how to text message.
