One of my favorite Albert Einstein quotes addresses the influences of experience, learning and information on knowledge:
Information is not knowledge. Learning is experience. Everything else is just information.’
Today, it’s all about information:
The Information Age;
The Information Gap; and
The Information Generation!
Have the ‘hand-machine-walkers’ out there really increased their knowledge of themselves, the world, and life itself?
To quote an American college student who was recently asked, ‘
Who fought in the Civil War?
Her response, ‘Russia and Japan!’
America, definitely has the greatest education system in the world!?
