    • http://www.flickr.com/photos/ppl_ri_images/4019951418/ Ida Aalen I’ve Got Google, Why Do I EMTACL10 Need You? A Student’s April 28th
    • I’ve Got Google, Why Do I Need You? http://www.flickr.com/photos/cellphonesusie/2099769335/
    • I’m not your typical student http://www.flickr.com/photos/m00by/2538932794/
    • I’m a paperless student
    • Studying is a whole lot more than reading http://www.flickr.com/photos/ivt-ntnu/4448745162/
    • Studying is a whole lot more than reading http://www.flickr.com/photos/ivt-ntnu/4183861261/
    • Studying is a whole lot more than reading http://www.flickr.com/photos/dakima-arts/3497370475/
    • Why study with pen and paper instead of using a computer?
    • Learnability and usability http://www.flickr.com/photos/denn/146887708/
    • Flexibility and non-linearity http://www.flickr.com/photos/illustrious/49005083/
    • Distraction http://www.flickr.com/photos/isla_yelo/2412920479/
    • Why did I go digital?
    • I can type while I read http://www.flickr.com/photos/greenchameleon/1083252106/
    • The software got better http://www.evernote.com/about/learn_more/
    • ..and my self-discipline got a little help http://www.rescuetime.com/tour
    • But do these tools make me a better student? http://www.flickr.com/photos/vox/4398623044/
    • I get searchable notes http://docs.google.com/
    • ..that I can quote from http://docs.google.com
    • My flashcards work. http://quizlet.com
    • And we’re actually able to collaborate Text
    • ..and I save money. http://www.flickr.com/photos/iboy/3611341689/
    • Do Google and Wikipedia make a better student?
    • I gave up this.. http://ask.bibsys.no/ask/action/stdsearch
    • ..for Google. http://scholar.google.com/advanced_scholar_search?hl=en&as_sdt=2000
    • This is internet, computer stone-age..
    • ...are we cavemen to the digital natives? http://www.flickr.com/photos/aperturismo/4491368760/
    • Screentime does not make you competent! http://www.flickr.com/photos/69805768@N00/3292899689/
    • The Internet is not a place!
    • Are we lazy, or maybe just stupid?
    • Nobody wants to stay a beginner
    • People don’t like to be incompetent, and beginners, by definition, are incompetent. Conversely, learning and improving is rewarding, so beginners become intermediates very quickly - or they drop out altogether. Page 42 in Cooper, Reimann and Cronins “About Face 3.0”
    • It’s easy to forget what you don’t practice
    • Should librarians even teach students anything?
    • But how can we be able to use advanced computers if we don’t take the time and energy to let someone teach it to us?
    • http://www.flickr.com/photos/sea-turtle/3228848483/
    • Computer literacy [...] is nothing more than a euphemism for forcing human beings to stretch their thinking to undertsand an alien, machine logic rather than having software-enabled products stretch to meet people’s way of thinking. Page 27 in Cooper, Reimann and Cronins “About Face 3.0” sitat
    • The librarian’s logic is just as alien to me as the programmer’s logic. http://www.flickr.com/photos/pgoyette/100769956/
    • So should I adapt, or should you? http://www.flickr.com/photos/stevegarfield/4511652432/
    • What’s the real work? http://www.flickr.com/photos/antonioviva/4277074485/
    • The Real Work is not formatting the margins, installing the printer driver, uploading the document, finishing the PowerPoint slides [...]. The Real Work is teaching the child, healing the patient, selling the house, logging the road defects, fixing the car at the roadside [...]. http://speirs.org/blog/2010/1/29/future-shock.html
    • What are the excise tasks? http://www.flickr.com/photos/dukeyearlook/3811954463/
    • That’s a difficult distinction http://www.flickr.com/photos/freeparking/500901676/
    • What is the real work a student should be doing? Googling university courses? Buying or borrowing books? Taking notes? Organizing my notes? Going to a lecture? Looking through old exams? Doing tests and writing essays?
    • Am I losing important skills or am I just being more efficient?
    • Focus on goals rather than tasks http://www.flickr.com/photos/annarbor/4349878303/
    • Questions I’ve asked in my years as a student • How do I know how to quote? • I’m wondering whethere there are any good books on this subject. • I want to get an overlook over this research field. • What do I do with these journal articles and papers?
    • The computer does the work and the person does the thinking http://www.flickr.com/photos/christchurchcitylibraries/4017407951/
    • Why does this matter to a library? And why should the library matter to me?
