Education: Memorisation is valueless when students are one click away from Google and Wikipedia

During the past few months, I’ve been following an e-learning forum at the University of Zurich focusing on e-assessment. You can have a look at the program, the presentations of the presenters, as well as the videos of the interesting meetings here.

On Tuesday, May 20th, Mr. Bobby Elliott stopped by in Zurich to share his experiences. I was not least struck by this comment of Mr. Elliott:

Memorisation is valueless when students are one click away from Google and Wikipedia.

You can watch and listen to Mr. Elliott’s presentation, which is challenging status quo, by clicking here.
