    “We must prevent students from searching for information on the Internet themselves,” says the Liberal minister, for example.

    Really weird thing when out of context, btw, perhaps translates poorly, idk?

      I guess they are worried about fake news and conspiracy theories when children don’t have the critical thinking required to identify them.

        I mean that is something they should focus on; improving the quality of the searches, instead of pretending they can just stop it.

        I’m Nordic and us not doing so well last time in Pisa isn’t due to kids using technology, in my opinion.

      Searching for informations by themselves maybe ?
      There is also a difference between searching within a textbook, where the teacher knows what the student will find, and searching the internet, where well… we have been complaining about the enshitification enough.
      Also I support not letting the kids run free on the internet before they have aquired a bit of media litteracy.
      Now that I think about it, a search engine for school could be a cool thing. Tricky but cool.

        you are on a French speaking community

        (I’m not him, but)

        Désolé, monsieur, it’s just that Lemmy is still so small that posts pop up on main feeds despite being from non-English communities, and then you get the natural “I wonder what that is about” reaction and need to satisfy your curiosity.

          No worries, but also feel free to configure your languages in your settings so that you don’t see content in languages you don’t understand

            Oh there are settings for that?

            Thank you for letting me know. Where can I find them? User settings I presume? (Going there now.)

                Warning: If you deselect Undetermined, you will not see most content.

                Uff. I don’t think I will though, sorry.

                  You should definitely keep Undertermined. Some content isn’t indeed tagged.

                  However, you should maybe uncheck French. This post is tagged, as you can see by “Français” next to the community name.

      Open link, then translate the webpage with your browser?

      That’s what I did.
