So from the history of the internet to this refocussing on learning – a great interview from Michael Wesch about harnessing collective intelligence rather than teaching content. He is an advocate of ‘anti-teaching’, seeking too inspire with good questions. Google becomes a tool for testing possibilities. Social media is also about learning possibilities. But don’t get it wrong – it is also about more work! more commitment! more active involvement in collaborative learning. He also raises the use of RFID on a campus, for creating learning opportunities. This I like!!

Some topics are easily picked up through Tutorials and References online, as well as through google. But other topics are still best picked up by reading books.
Everyone learns differently. However, the internet has definitely changed the game. Google is a great resource that should be utilized in learning.
