Advent of Google means we must rethink our approach to education

Advent of Google means we must rethink our approach to education | ed techie me | Scoop.it

Teaching in an environment where the internet and discussion are allowed in exams would be different. The ability to find things out quickly and accurately would become the predominant skill. The ability to discriminate between alternatives, then put facts together to solve problems would be critical. AThat's a skill that future employers would admire immensely.

Reinventing schools -  today's educational challenge -  from TED 2013 prizewinner Sugata Mitra.

William Hanna's curator insight, June 18, 2013 8:25 AM

Wow!  Allowing internet access and discussion during exams???  As bizarre as it sounds, I think it's awesome!  Instead of teaching our kids to memorize everything, we could teach them to THINK!  A good thing indeed.
