The Information Cycle

Some time back, while trying to make sense of information, I drew what I understood at the time to be a cycle of information. New times call for new ways of thinking. Information that used to be passed down generation to generation was now being passed down and mixed up and passed down again. Sometimes that content kept its original meaning and sometimes, like the time I played telephone at a birthday party when I was 8, that content took form very differently than intended. Now more than ever we need to be more aware of the cycle of information. Digital information, that gets passed around very quickly, needs to be constantly questioned, vetted and shared. There's never been a more important time to teach our children to be critical thinkers. The world is only going to get more complicated. The information? Well. It's going to get more intense.
