I partially agree with your idea.
Yes, it is true that we should learn how to organize and understand the bombarded information on the internet nowadays.
However, understanding a new concept is based on the basic knowledge we learned beforehand.
I mean, what we have done during our middle school and high school is to be equipped ourselves with basic knowledge tools for the further understanding toward another concept. If we hadn't memorized all those simple and basic concepts such as multiplication and division, we would not be able to understand the basic meaning of calculus. And this is not only limited to mathematics I mentioned.
Plus, even though there are abundant of information on the internet, it is also human who produce those information. We can organize those information and narrow it down for the aim of our tasks, but that is not enough. We are also obliged to create a new idea, information, and concept. The main goal of education is to make students not as dehumanized-working machine, but as alive-thinking human-being. In deed, creating a new idea is based on the existing concepts. Not memorizing those concepts always ensures that they cannot come into across the moment, "Eureka!"
