The Googling rhetoric
Posted July 7, 2016on:
I have heard this uttered in speeches in years past and will hear it in years to come. It is that we live in an age where information is at our fingertips and that we need to change how we school our children.
If my eyes were like bowling balls, you would hear them roll slowly down the lane. I strike with these questions:
- How often to those speakers practice what they preach?
- How much has teaching changed to take advantage of this?
- How relevant is “teaching” if this is the case?
The “you can Google anything” rhetoric needs to be challenged with these unGoogleable questions.
