Devices of technology is getting smarter and some individuals are getting dumber, What's Going On?
Cunning devices of technologie's of wares that has individuals addicted to it's ways,some individuals now seemed never to use their brain to remember store or input information,as it's now a device of search engine,that helps them know and I am wondering why individuals don't use their brains anymore?The devices are getting smarter and some individuals are getting dumber as they are now depending on materialistic technology of wares to substitute for a working brain that they had for years what will happen to some individuals in society in the future by keeping their brains on the back burner?
When we can look things up nearly instantly, we've seen a decreasing value for rote learning. Less memorization, weaker memory.
When we have computers that can do calculations quickly, math skills are devalued though number crunching via a computer is still valued. So the number of people under 20 who can correctly make change mentally decreases, because they didn't value the skill or exercise it as an adult.
Spell checker allows you to be more relaxed on spelling and there's less feedback when you spell it wrong (not embarrassing), so you get people who do not know how to spell many words AND sometimes leave clearly incorrect spelling corrections in place because they don't know what word to use.
TLDR: when you delegate the skills to technology, they atrophy.
Tamara Wilhite "Experience Makes one more experienced to do ones duties M.Hinkson, Now no one wants their brains to do it's duty so what will we have in the future but robotic brings of man just walking around utilizing devices without self aware etc
I agree with Tamara Wilhite. So many of people of all ages rely on the devices around them to excess and many use them dangerously. They are inattentive and engrossed in devices when they walk across a street, drive a car, bike, even motorcycles! They also become mentally and socially lazy. Instead of producing effort in their brains that would improve or at least maintain their brains or simply be in the moment with those around them, they are on various devices usually doing things that aren't helpful or useful in any way. There is an increasingly popular policy in schools that you can't even wear a watch (no matter the type) when taking certain tests. Why? Because lazy pants cheaters use smart watches to look up answers! This nonsense has been increasing as technology advances and doesn't seem to matter to the offenders until they have a truly nasty reprimand of some sort.
Express10 I agree with you as individuals has now become very lazy with this new technology, they no longer want to think or talk for themselves they are just acting dumb, and the zombie state of being is just adding to the dumber aspects of ways
