Yes it does. Previously when you wanted to know something, you had to go to the library or ask someone and hope they know the answer. Now, all the information in the world is just a google search away. The need for students to memorize facts are gone. The teacher and textbook are no longer the only source for information. Information is freely exchanged on the internet, there are free schools online such as Khan Academy and iTunes U. However, even though all this information is available, students will just go to wikipedia and blindly copy down whatever they see. Sorting through all the content available on the web is a daunting task and students now just dont know how to do it. Just as in the past when the teacher would teach students how to use the library and find the correct books, we also need to teach students how to properly use the internet and find the correct websites. It may be just a matter of time before we get a “google” for education that will be the standard for learning.
