TODAY’S children have the world at their fingertips, it’s called a smartphone, or maybe a tablet or computer.
For children to grow up having the world at their feet, too, it is essential that they are able to make sense of it. They need to be able to distinguish between the information and the misinformation that is coming at them 24/7, thanks to a constant evolution in digital technology.
No generation before them has had to deal with this overload of information. Nor have they needed to grow up with a huge dollop of cynicism to understand that not everything they read is fact, that there may be distortion of the truth or, even, mere fictiontargeting them from every angle.
