“Is Google making us stupid?” This was the question that began today’s class discussion. In today’s society, we are constantly surrounded by electronic devices that can have us connected to the internet in a matter of seconds. I believe that Google and other internet sites are not making us “stupid” when used in moderation. Personally, I heavily use Google to work on school assignments or to get an update on current events. I believe that Google can actually contribute to our knowledge. Another point that was made in class today was the idea of multitasking. For the younger generations, multitasking consists of watching TV, checking text messages, surfing the web, etc. all at the same time. Personally, I cannot remember the last time I solely watched TV without checking my instagram, twitter, or text messages. I do experience the constant need to keep my mind busy and to receive information at a fast pace, Some of my classmates highly support listening to music while studying, This is where I draw the line regarding the discussion on multitasking. In order for me to successfully study or work on homework, I need to be in complete silence. I can get distracted very distracted while listening to music. I am the type of person that can sit in a cubicle at the library for hours on end. In certain circumstances using Google and multitasking is appropriate but I do have some boundaries.
