A future skill,

It’s true, all no mater where you are getting your information from, but as it becomes easier and easier for anyone to write anything on the Internet, one of the great skills of the future will be separating fact from fiction. 

Tim Berners-Lee, the bloke who thought it would be good to have documents link together over a network1 (not the inventor of the Internet) says we should be looking at ways to help us tell is sites are trustworthy. only problem with that, one persons trustworthy is another persons heresy.

Teaching people to research, check facts from more than one source and learn to distinguish between reliable and unreliable sources of information is something we should be pushing as a key part of learning. 

1 He’s a very clever man; I don’t want to belittle what he did, just make a point he didn’t invent the internet as so may people say!
