Let's "GET ON WITH IT!"
Impressive, Joan! The business about knowing becoming obsolete didn't quite click for me, because successful utilization of internet resources depends to some extent upon what the searcher knows. And isn't his success what the children know after participating in a sole?
I was concerned about how these children can tell which information from the internet is valid. After all, there's tons of deliberate misinformation and hate competing with legitimate sources. An ignorant searcher wouldn't be able to tell them apart. Even adults with high school education are fooled by climate denier and other malicious special interest sites.
Valid points. Obviously, he fed into the computer what he hoped they would learn. Others would not be so benevolent. This technology use is rife with exploitation of those who don't understand the difference between learning what will be useful in their lives, the value of focused attention, and the importance to be self-disciplined. Having free access to what is available carries risks that may be too high. I would like to sit down with him and talk about these and other issues.
