Teaching in the Time of Google

25 Apr

At the Chronicle of Higher Education, philosopher Michael Patrick Lynch offers some helpful perspective on the Digital Age here:

It is this combination that makes Google-knowing distinctive: at once seamlessly integrated into individual experience but outsourced and guided by the preferences of others. It is both in and out of our heads. That is what makes it so useful, and also so problematic. The Internet is at one and the same time the most glorious fact-checker and the most effective bias-affirmer ever invented.

For Lynch’s entire piece, see here: Teaching in the Time of Google – The Chronicle of Higher Education
