    On the whole I would say enhanced, although I'm sure there are strong arguments for and against. As humans our creativity knows no bounds - look at the arts, sciences and engineering - and technology, from the first crude wooden or rock tool to the latest high-tech film creation allows us to explore what we have inside like never before. We can still go back to basics if we so choose and work with only our instincts - perhaps drama and acting and mime and singing, (plus cave painting with hands and natural dyes) are still pure in the strictest sense, needing no technology - but a paint brush is technology, so is a chisel and hammer for sculpting, so I'd say creativity is enhanced.

      I don't agree. When I was growing up, we were expected to entertain ourselves. We played outside, colored, created and enacted plays, played house, built forts, created our own scavenger hunts, etc. Now kids have computers doing the thinking for them
