Essential question:

"Choice is like oxygen to this generation." (34) How is or should this technology be used in education to give students a choice of how, where and when they will learn or be assessed?

This technology is easily accessed and used on a daily basis for the Net Generation. We have the choice to learn and we have the choice on how we do. It should be used wisely and not taken for granted.

Semantic-Aware Applications refines searches. Which means that when you ask a question it will remove unnecessary words and improve the question so that you can find what you need more easily. It makes searching much easier. It doesn’t just look for articles with the words you type in the search, it will actually understand what you are asking and will give you the answers you seek. The choice is to use this, to improve someone’s learning.

We have the choice to use Semantic-Aware Applications to help us learn quickly and more easily. It is easier to find what you are looking for with this technology because it is quicker to find your answer. The search knows what you are asking which is why it's so much quicker and easier than normal search engines.
