A professor of history explains why academics and teachers must engage
young people in a medium they trust – the internet
The other day I was talking to a student in her third year of reading
history at an elite British university. I asked if there were any books
that had changed her understanding of the world. She replied that she had
not read a book from beginning to end. “We don’t have time to read whole
books,” she explained.
*“There are quicker ways to get the information needed for an essay, and
other things to do at university.”*
