If you can't beat 'em, join 'em...

I had some very interesting feedback from a session I provided yesterday for the Shad Valley group.  The individual was impressed by the fact that I wasn't "no, don't use that..." but instead was "use it, but here is how to use it more efficiently to retrieve more relevant results". 

Apparently high school students are still being warned against using Google and Wikipedia for their research.  I say - we know they are going there anyways, so why don't we teach them how to use those databases more effectively.  I also said to the students, start your research there... just don't end there...

I am sensing a research project here... I am feeling inspired!
