People who use Google are given the impression that they are interacting with the data out there, but they are actually interacting with Google and its view of the world.

 

"They are prediction engines that constantly refine a theory about who you are and what you are going to do or want next. Together, they create an universe of data for each one of us."

"In a 2010 paper published in the Scientific American journal, Tim Berners-Lee warned about companies developing ever more “closed” products and “data islands”.

"Morville, in his book Search Patterns, says that the first and second results receive 80% of attention. The vertical approach suggests to the user the idea of a single result that fully answers the question, enclosing possibilities and preventing alternative realization."


Or in other words, is our acceptance of what we see in search results eroding our ability (or willingness) to consider alternatives and employ critical thinking?

Lucy Beaton's curator insight, January 16, 2014 8:21 PM

This is alarming.  We, as Teacher Librarians, need to be aware of the ramifications of this.

Digital Is - Considering the Complexity of Learning to Code | Kids Learning Tech | Scoop.it
As Mitch Resnick put it, "The goal should be...organizing your thinking in new ways, to be able to debug things, to be able to design something from an initial idea to a finished product...Those types of skills are useful, even if you're not going to be employed as a programmer."
Claude Terosier's insight:
Always good to think deeper than following the "learning to code current". Coding is a means, not a goal.
