Internet Learning

In "Learning and teaching through the Internet" (Philippine Daily Inquirer, 30 January 2006), Manuel L. Quezon III writes that "Schools are increasingly incapable of adequately investing in books, and even when they have decent libraries, students tend to go to the Internet rather than books for information."

Quezon suggests that teachers should meet their students where they are, instead of forcing them to learn the way their parents did. He gives examples of websites and blogs that teachers and students can use (some were even created by students!) and provides links on his own blog.

Incidentally, he refers to this blogger's profession in his column and even includes this blog among the examples of “unleashed thinkers” in his blog. I'm speechless =)
