Is the learning in your classroom 'googleable?'

Sure, we need to know some basic things before we are able to elevate and take our learning to the next level.

And yes, absolutely, there are questions we will ask and tasks we will assign that could be easily solved via Google.


What's that ratio look like in your classroom?

Is it a 50/50 split between 'googleable' answers vs. 'not-googleable' answers?

Or, is the divide even wider...?

Better yet, would you be willing to do an activity with your students and have them post the questions being asked in your class in one of these two categories like Ewan McIntosh did?

Would you be brave enough to do this type of vulnerable, transparent and reflective activity with your students?

Would you have the willingness to change what you're doing based on the findings of this type of activity?
