Here in the US, school kids get extensive training on PowerPoint, and almost none on figuring out the authority of different sources on the web. They do their book reports and such with swiped jpgs and cheesy transitions, but still can't write a clear essay or figure out which source is making stuff up.

I'm with Tufte on the notion that PowerPoint makes us dumber. And sad that we're teaching it as the main communication medium in schools.
