Changing the way we think

This article claims that using the internet changes the fundamental way we think.  Interesting because it links in well with my previous post from Sir Ken Robinson.

Basically the hypothesis is that coping with multiple inputs of information exercises different ways of thinking to the more traditional “sit down and read a book” style.  I’m not sure where people getting engrossed in a computer game for several hours quite fits in but it’s an interesting debate for people interested in the future (some say present) of education.
