How Should Teaching Change in the Age of Siri?

We thought this article had some great points to address the instantaneous answers available to students today and how we can teach around that.

“Taking digital tools and mobile technologies into account, it’s obvious that multiple-choice and true-false questions are not going to cut it anymore. Instead, educators have to design questions that force students into drawing conclusions and using the proof process that many of them haven’t encountered yet.”

“One method of practicing problem-solving is giving students both the question and the answer and asking them to explain how to solve the problem — how you harvest the information from the problem and show the steps in the solution.”
