Adrian argues that most people who are network literate are self taught, and yet it seems this is a necessary skill in using the internet; ultimately one of the most powerful and massive communications mediums in the world. However, schools arguably limit our use and exposure to the internet and the way we use it, cutting us off from it’s many uses rather than teaching us how to use it. Is this why we aren’t very apt at judging the validity of internet content? Is this an issue for people of our generation? Are we living ¬†within an industrial system that operates based on an outdated code of conduct intended to govern the masses that may be impacting our learning?

Definitely got me thinking! Especially in regards to the internet and the way we are using social media and the content we put online.
