How Technology Will Destroy Schools

David Wiley, Sept 29, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

David Wiley reflects. "As the price for these human-network interfaces decreases (which it certainly will), as network access becomes increasingly ubiquitous (which it will), and as the ratio of retrieval from the network to retrieval from human memory approaches one (which it will), it makes less and less sense for our children to spend their early years sitting in classrooms trying to develop the ability to retrieve inert information from memory faster than they can retreive the same information from the network."
