Most of the time, i can find my info from google. Why? Coz i worked in a job which required me to google information. That was my ricebowl for a temp job. However i can do it doesnt mean i expect others to be able to do it.
I can do my homework qn, doesnt mean all classmates can do. Doesnt mean they stupid, bcos maybe i happen come across similar concept. But they might be overall more capable than me.
What i'm saying is, we can go on and on about independent learning. But we should not forget to build an inclusive community. Being inclusive of different needs of people doesnt equate spoon feeding. We can tactfully ask them to search. Newbies may not know how often a qn is asked. Not everything is intuitive.
You can give a man a rod to fish but at the end of the day, he needs to know what to do with the rod. U dun need to screw the person for him to be able to fish for life.
