Tony Bates continues his discussion of cost effectiveness in the academy. I referred to this post during our online discussion today, pointing out that we are rapidly entering a crisis period for education, as government are now withdrawing funding from the system. Increasingly, people are being left to their own devices, and in the absence of a strong education system, they become prone to misinformation and manipualtion. They need, I said, a vaccine that protects them against a disease of the educational system, and this vaccine is digital literacy.
