Advent of Google means we must rethink our approach to education | Education News:

 "We have a romantic attachment to skills from the past which are no longer relevant on a curriculum for today’s children
Would a person with good handwriting, spelling and grammar and instant recall of multiplication tables be considered a better candidate for a job than, say, one who knows how to configure a peer-to-peer network of devices, set up an organisation-wide Google calendar and find out where the most reliable sources of venture capital are, I wonder? The former set of skills are taught in schools, the latter are not."
