I funble to respond to the above your writing have been clearly the experience that I share daily as I sit in classrooms. No longer students are willing to learn the material for what it is worth, it is not a basic pursal of information to solicit the correct response for the here and now. I have felt that student -event in real classes - are never digesting information but chucking it into memory for a short while as required, they see no need for fitting their learning into their life experiences, they view learning as a domain to progress out of school and not as life skills and development. I am certaily realising the time of non-thinking (informed ) humans are upon up, we as a people of the Internet age see not the need to think before we search the "GOOGLES'" and "YAHOO'S". I am not concluing that we may appear to be a people of the Superior Age when it comes to Information, but are heading on the walk towared to a community of inferior minds. It is truly needed that collaborative work be used to guide the new generation of learners to utilise infromation, internalise information, think and re think infomation, be finally the processors of information. Whether it was Intenet provided, books or articles. It is only a sharing of the generation before but a task of all, not excluding- parents, uncles, sisters, scholors, wisemen, prist, rabbi and teachers to guide these young minds for building superior thinkers.
2. With regards to the internationalization and transnationalization of education, how do you think that curricula should be developed so that these interesting dimensions contribute to the improvement of Superior Education in the region?
