Yes and no. The distraction factor is really extreme for your so called Gen Z. Many lack common sense for personal management and career planning. This is based on empirical evidence of watching my sister and her friends.
There needs to be a return to fundamental knowledge that somehow was thrown to the wayside with the proliferation of the Internet into every nook and cranny of education. It’s certainly a helpful tool, but learning by hand (and the hard way) leads to more lasting formative experiences.
If there was a global blackout, Gen Z would be totally f*d and have no idea how to survive.
