While listening to a recent TED talk via NPR on Unstoppable Learning (do yourself a favour & listen, it’s terrific) Sugatra Mitra talks about how we may be heading into the age of not needing to ‘know’ things. He recommends we use what he calls S.O.L.E.’s (self-organized learning environments) to surf & learn.
It’s got me thinking. Which made me perk up when I saw this Huffington post article on Google search tricks.
My fav? The Google timer. See below. Who knew!?
Set A Timer
The Solution: Type “set timer for” into the search bar and a Google timer will appear as the first result. Enter the time you want in hours, minutes or seconds and start the timer. Google will start beeping at you when your time runs out.
