in Making Good New Ideas

By Jamie McKenzie
We are suffering from a cut-and-paste culture bred by the ease with which any of us can locate and save information. Sadly, Google and its relatives give us all a false sense of security and wisdom as we can search for something as elusive as "the truth" and Google delivers an answer in less than ten seconds.
Schools and districts committed to 21st Century Skills as well as the standards of AASL and ISTE must confront this cut-and-paste culture head-on, eliminating those classroom practices that encourage and promote such lazy thinking and research, replacing them with activities that are more challenging and more worthwhile.
In this book, Jamie lays out a case for the end to topical research and a firm commitment to questioning that engages students in thinking for themselves and making up their own minds. "Every student a thinker!" he urges.
