Offloading information to an external memory: Good or bad

I really think the relevancy of memorization based educational practices need more scientific investigation. How much can and should we remember in a dynamic and information-abundant-world should be investigated.

How much fundamentally transient information should we remember. ? Who get to decide ?(Blind man leading blind man?)

I think the cognitive view totally ignores human Institution and tool building capabilities, and on how these cumulative culture optimize human capabilities. This include things like”Air traffic protocol” to other forms of decision support systems.
