The Internet Is Making Us Dumber!

Hello, my name is Thalyia Thompson and I am just your ordinary High School student. Meaning that I use the internet just as much as the rest of my classmates.

I’m sure we can all agree that the internet is a very useful tool and has made many things possible for us. But don’t you think that the internet is also destroying us in a way? I believe that our generation has become way too dependent on the internet. As soon as we have a problem, we go straight to the internet to solve it for us. Instead of using our brains we use the internet because it’s the quickest option for us. We don’t think the same way we used to, we let the internet think for us. Now I’m not saying that I don’t think the internet is a great resource. I’m just saying that it also has big effects on people in very negative ways. I’m sure that there are people out there who would not be able to survive if they did not always have the internet in handy any time they needed to use it. The internet is getting smarter while we’re getting dumber, and it has taken up way too much of our lives. I believe that people make it seem like the internet is worth more than our brains.

Do you think the internet is making us dumber?
