We are living in exponential times. For ages and ages developments and the increase of knowledge of mankind went relatively slow. Man perfectly could function with the knowledge he learned from his parents and grandparents. We lived in small communities where everybody knew each other and everybody needed each other. Long ago? No, it depends on where you live. But at that places of the world which are connected at the internet, development evolved rapidly from evolution to revolution.
Now that I am nearly sixty years it appears to me that al the now existing modern electronica based technology has been development during my life. Since approximately 1995 fibreglass connects all continents and at the internet you can find all the data you need. (Major innovations and improvements which made this happens are at the field of the transducers and powerful small batteries).
But nowadays anybody connected to the internet have access to data to be gained from sources all over the world. People now themselves can be responsible for their thoughts and acts. Unless, people is educated and trained to interpret the data, to distinguish facts and fake. Development in technological, social morel economics fields at this moment are faster than ever before. Now there is no lack of information, there is an overkill of information. People can be drowned in it.
This leads to the question: “Is the way we teach still adequate?” Does education keeps up with the needs and the revolution of timeshift.
