Famous Quotes? Or Not?

This short little slide show is taken from a longer piece I did with about 320 K-12 teachers and administrators. They were using clickers to answer various questions about technology uses. This fun little segment was part of the icebreaking piece before we got down to more serious business.

I’m not trying to make fun of anyone here (although I take a well deserved shot at one of the famous quote-makers) by showing how many people believe things that aren’t true, but I am a bit amazed how easy it is to get people to believe things happened when they clearly did not. If enough people say something is true, does that make it true? Umh, no.
