Questions - lead us on a journey
So after Wesch and his experience in his classroom really put education today in perspective. I experience the same kinds of questions in high school. More of a worry of what is going to be on the test and how much it is going to be worth, even if this assignment is going to be graded. Never an inquiry of why this is happening, or what is going on, or how can this relate, which is a tad important in the sciences.
We all know that students are able to look up information, but the key is, they will look up information about stuff they are interested in. I have a few students who can tell me every stat of every football player on every college team, which is very impressive to me, since I can't remember who was in the Superbowl this year. I can see getting the students to want to look up information, any way they want to, to complete an assignment, project, etc. I feel that it is our job as modern teachers to get the students interested in the information, then let the students take it from there.
