Digital Literacy

by

This video about digital literacy caught my eye. It says, after explaining Google’s success, that students are relying too much on Google. I think we sometimes forget that Google is just a search engine. The results we read are just words, we have to read them, analyze them, and apply them to whatever it is we are trying to educate ourselves on. It still takes somewhat of a brain to get by in the digital age, computers can’t think for us yet. Can they?
