e-Education turning out e-diots?
This bit is from Prof. Sadagopan's Weblog:
"excessive focus on computers, e-education, digital library, knowledge portals, learning management systems etc., that put technology and information at the center-stage is taking away the spirit of inquiry and learning processes that form the core of education. Well said indeed!
It is particularly relevant today when countries like India are seeing large-scale fund deployment (World Bank, IMF, USAID etc.,) that run into billions of dollars being diverted to computers, networking and others while the plight of the teachers remain pathetic as ever. "
Coming from India's most respected Academicians in the computer field that is a really telling comment!
