Whilst delivering a class the other day, one of my 80 year old plus students said quietly "yeah but how do I get there?"
I thought to myself, that's a very interesting thought. I must come back and address that knowledge gap. I know I take it for granted that I can fly around the internet using either the URL bar of Google Search. The gap I noticed in this gentleman's thinking is that one can quickly navigate the net by understanding the role of Google Search as a tool that links us to any service that may exist on the internet.
So tomorrow in class I'm planning on addressing this question with this Gentleman and the class as well. Whilst its not a big jump for most of us, for the older internet users they often they don't realise the linking role Google has in connecting us with the greater internet.
