Just Google It!

In my life time, Google has transformed from an online search engine to a homework "bot". Students are able to enter homework questions and Google finds the answer. Very little authentic cognition occurs during this process. "Just Goggle it!" has replaced deep thought and articulation. We are losing a significant part of ourselves as a society. More importantly, though, education has to wake up. We have to change the manner in which we ask our questions. If the question can be answered by a simple Google search, then the question is no longer valid for authentic education.
