Google Search Education

Google Search Education

If you haven’t already, you should take a peek at the new Google Search Education!

This passage resonated with me, in the video from time-stamp 2:06;

“The new digital divide is that those who are able to search, and those that aren’t able to search. It’s about critical thinking skills, it’s about being independent learners, and we need to make sure we cultivate these skills within our students so that when they go out into the world … they will know how to search and be able to be critical thinkers.”

Is this another side to the digital native/immigrant or digital resident/visitor discussion (argument)? Is it about the ability to find appropriate resources or not, rather than the technical nature of the individual’s background? What do you think?
