An article in The Guardian asks the question: should Googling in exams be allowed? They present two opposing views from two different people:

  • Lola Okolosie thinks this approach may work better in some subjects than others, such as geography and history. She also makes the point that students will still need a solid knowledge foundation in order to quickly find what they are looking for on Google.
  • Chris McGovern thinks that this would be a step backwards, and that it undermines the importance of subject knowledge.
