    How Important Is Wikipedia In The Grand Scheme Of Things? - Lazy Research...

    Lazy Research

    There is no excuse for laziness, but the blame for it is often placed on the presence of technology instead of where it actually belongs - on the people who rely on technology to provide them the shortcuts they take.

    The modern age is one of advanced technology and many students are more than willing to take advantage of the ease of relying on computers and minimal online research.

    The primary function of schools is to teach children. Not only are they responsible for teaching them facts, but also for teaching them how to think and solve problems for themselves. When students are no longer able, or willing, to logically decide something, academics are quick to blame the ease of access to technological advances, separating themselves from the blame.

    Unfortunately, schools hold as much blame as the technology they bash, for the falling ability of students to produce results on their own. When I was in high school during the early 1980's, calculators were prohibited in all classes except for the advanced mathematics classes that required the use of scientific calculators. By the mid-1990's, the children of friends were telling me that they were required to bring a simple calculator to the classroom to assist them in their basic math calculations.
