, or how to expertly maintain the Mac Book I’m using now.
I have not needed a repair man for anything in my home or even a mechanic for my car. If there is a problem, I’m almost guaranteed that someone else has had the same problem and has shared the solution on the web. I look up everything and I’m very successful at finding detailed information about rebuilding a car engine, repairing a bicycle, learning how to play my guitar better, cooking healthy etc. All of this information used to be very difficult to find, and when found it went for a pretty decent price, now it’s mostly free. I feel comfortable saying I have grown ten fold intellectually since 1998, which is when I got my first computer.
I don’t think learning itself has changed, but the way by which we go about learning, and the availability of the information has revolutionized education comprehensively.
