The Learning Circuits
OCTOBER 27, 2005
Google has become a digital extension of my memory. If I forget how to do something, or cannot remember a fact or name or place, I Google around for a bit and find it. So I Googled "Al Pacino Filmography", and two clicks later, I 'knew' the name of the movie. I Googled "Mitsubishi DVD VCR Connections" and three clicks later had the operating manual that was lost in the same place that socks go to in the washing machine. Yep, Googled. Maybe I'll ask Google The older I get the more I use it. Right. What does this have to do with learning?
