When I was growing up and had a question, my parents would tell me to go look it up in the encyclopedia. I guess the point was to make me go through the effort of finding something out so I would appreciate and remember the answer. Not sure if it worked, but it was how we did things.
Today with the internet, if a kid doesn’t know something, he or she just hits a button and there’s the answer. That is really progress. However, I read student loans are higher because it is taking more students 5 years to get through college instead of the normal 4 years. Maybe they are hitting the wrong button.
The whole internet concept has truly changed how all of us see life. Heard the other day that a teacher asked her 4th grade class where the nations capital was located. A student raised his hand and said Washington D.C.. The teacher then asked if he knew what D.C. stood for and the student confidently said Dot Com.
Maybe we need to go back to looking things up in the encyclopedia. But if you want to really use the internet, check out my books on Amazon (click here)
