Educational Philosophies-Retired Skills

Access to relevant resources changes everything. Some people may hold onto the idea that everyone should have the skill to find information using the resources team B was given, but the less relevant those materials become, the less we need to know how to use them. The skill itself doesn’t go away, it just changes in appearance. Research is research regardless of the medium presented. Research is the skill, an encyclopedia is the object in which that skill is applied. If anything, researching as a skill has become more complex than it ever has been before, requiring more in-depth teaching and equal access to aid in the opportunity to learn it well.
