Let's take a moment to think about thinking. That's called metacognition. This is an intimidating word, rather sounds like educational rhetoric, but in actuality, we need to produce thinkers out of a generation of students who do not think much at all. In fact,this generation almost feels they are entitled to the answers without thinking.
Last week, I visited many libraries and observed a rather enabling behavior. All the students questions were answered without giving the child to think through the answers for themselves. Where do I find this book? Under the guise of efficiency, we too often mirror the Google box, or the Ask Jeeves man and provide a quick answer.
Actually, Socrates was anti-print, now that I think about it. So, he might have said, "Scrap the papyrus Johnny and use your brain." Use it or lose it. Same motto today as 2000 years ago.
