Bing–Maybe they should teach pedagogy, too!


Every time I see a commercial for Bing—the whole information overload. We hear so much all the time about what good writing is and what not. I wonder if the students are like the Dad in the following commercial that I just saw. His daughter talks about a smart phone having all the necessary components she needs to stay organized and up-to-date on events.

I think whoever the ad agency is that has created these string of Bing commercials has created a metaphor for not only our entire existence in western society, but perhaps for teaching writing, too.

What do you think?
