I agree with Ohler because I think that students should learn how to search properly so that they find exactly what they are looking for. When we use the search bar, we get millions of hits upon our search; however, if we narrow down our search or focus on the main points, we may be able to find what we are looking for in a quicker fashion. I believe in order for this to occur, we, as educators, must be able to educate our students on the web. As the web continues to grow, there are more concepts we can begin to understand. We need to be able to educate students to look up appropriate information and not waste their time on searching every hit to see if that provides them research.
Although technology has its ups and downs, we need to be able to incorporate it into our everyday lives because it is only going to continue to grow. It provides another source of intelligence that we may find useful for some information. Even though it sounds like the easy way out of finding information or research, we are developing better skills in a technology sense. Instead of avoiding it, I believe educators need to be able to incoporate technology and the web into their classrooms now because we have time to plan for it before it grows at a faster rate.
