With today’s increasingly intelligent devices and super-fast connectivity, we are never more than a click or even a spoken request away from an answer to our questions.
Precisely because it is so easy to access the information we need, research shows our ability to recall it is diminishing. Instead it is more important to remember where to access information.

But it is important to be able to filter the information available to avoid information overload.
