Reading Supersizing the Mind

Andy Clark, Supersizing the Mind: Embodiment, Action, and Cognitive Extension (OUP USA, 2008).

Just started - interesting read - much more substantial than Lazoff and Johnson.

Initial thought - given the information age assumptions - the important thing to learn is how to use tools to handle information - not store it in the mind - what impact should that have on education.

Is there something like GTD here - a good scholar has an empty mind and lots of connections, students who aim to fill their minds with the knowledge are going in the opposite direction.
