    Thank you, Susan. I have always used 2 spaces between sentences. I don't remember where or when I read about using one space, prior to this post. I try using one space but I get carried away and forget. But, as you mentioned, being consistent is key.

    Regretfully practice has shown otherwise. In the Netherlands the technology in the classroom for education like laptops and tablets rapidly are on the decline. It has show that a number of motoric skills are rapidly vanishing. In many cases the hand writing skills are so appalling that students on high schools cant even recognize their own handwriting anymore while the natural math calculations also is on descent.

    Test have revealed that using IT peripherals in the classroom make parts of the brains numb while other parts indeed are becoming 'lazy'. Hence the use of laptops and tablets more and more are abandoned.

    Educating to Manage Knowledge

    I think conventional education is now redundant. If the purpose of education is to empower us to fully engage in life then we have to be able to define that need. The deep roots of education are in having knowledge. I think it was Aristotle who compiled the first encyclopaedia which was supposed to contain all existing human knowledge at the time. I can remember purchasing the Encyclopaedia Britannica in the 1970s which came with yearly updates to keep up with all the new knowledge that was being developed. Now we have computers and we can google what we need to know when we need it. What sense does it make for a child to spend a year memorizing a period in history when the whole thing can be put into a single YouTube video and watched in an hour with much greater affect. Education has to move on from having knowledge to managing knowledge. To that end we have to understand knowledge and learning and the human intellectual system. This would be truly holistic education. In Aristotle's time it was possible to read a book and know everything rhetorically. In our time it is possible to know how we can know everything rhetorically. To me this is the natural progression to educate on managing knowledge so that we cannot be led astray by the different versions of it that we encounter. Maybe it's just me but I find that exciting.

    @Susan ๐Ÿ Rooks, the Grammar Goddess - despite my many silly jokes about favour, flavour etc. etc. and how Cillantro is something you give to a troubled horse. Corriander it what you use for Curries. I actually started really reading one of your articles again. Well to me that last sentence sounded v. clumsy and overworked, but I ate my hores in the park? I actually scanned to see how many interesting little wisdoms there were. I do firmly believe that if you want to make sure you don't drop your hypenated-post participle wot sit thing (and the British invented it.) you have to go to an American for Grammer/Grammar and Queen Elizabeth 11 for spelling.

    #23 Hi @Susan Botelho! Nice to see you here.

    Yes, you done good, as is so often said incorrectly!

    The basic American rule, which makes very little sense, says we always put periods and commas inside final quotation marks, even if we're only quoting the last word.

    And I do not believe CD's is widely accepted . . . maybe widely used, but that's a whole different thing.

    One small point with apostrophes and plurals: When we're writing "She got all A's on her tests," the rule usually drops away because it's possible that without the apostrophe a reader could read "As" as "as."

    Now, how's THAT for a clunky sentence?
    Martin Wright
    06/06/2017 #24 Martin Wright
    There are very few who would be so apostolic about the apostrophe.
    Susan ๐Ÿ Botello
    06/06/2017 #23 Susan ๐Ÿ Botello
    This is awesome. I worked with an editor during my graphic design years who worked for a newspaper in the past. I kept editing out the apostrophe from CDs. She then came to me and explained that although technically "CDs" was the correct spelling, it was widely accepted to spell it "CD's."

    Oh, that leads me to the use of quotation marks. That one is confusing at times and I would like to know if I did that right here at the end of my sentence. Thanks for sharing this great article with us who write so much thanks to social media.

    Iโ€™ve never been impressed with the idea that the young are somehow tech savvy simply because they have grown up around technology. That we can hand a kid a device that is so intuitive that it doesnโ€™t need a manual implies the opposite of understanding technology. Hand them the parts and have them construct one and I will be impressed.

    Thanks again @Kevin Pashuk for hitting the nail on the head. The tool does not ensure learning. Learning ensures learning. It's great for people to have access to the latest methods and technologies, but they are worth nothing more than access if the people who could use them don't apply themselves and use them to learn new skills. EX: It's great to know that an app exists to help you with language learning, but it's of no added value if you don't actually use to learn a language or refresh skills. I love the idea of using any resource possible to enhance learning, but it's incumbent upon the person/learner to put it to good use.
