【Student Research】*要点説明あり

(Contributed by Kelvin)
The students of today have more technology to work with than the adults who were students many years ago. When I was in high school I knew how to use the Dewey Decimal System to find topics in books in a library. I was very good at finding information in a library using the Dewey Decimal System and the card catalog files. The card catalog files is a filing system of index cards using the Dewey Decimal System. They are sorted by author and then again by title. It is also easy to find topics by genre.
The card catalog system using the Dewey Decimal System has been replaced by Google using the internet. Students of today can quickly find the information in the palm of their hands using smartphones. It’s been so long that I’ve use the Dewey Decimal System in a card catalog system that I even do not remember how to use it. I imagine it is like riding a bike and I could quickly learn it or remember it.
We live in a world of information. Everything is easily found in a digital system online. The students of today are connected to an internet world that is abundant with information. Because information is more easily ready for a student to use, the requirement and expectation of students are that much higher than so many years ago where it was a greater challenge to get information.
