Is Google negatively affecting our intelligence? Throughout history, people didn’t use advanced technology like we do today. Instead, they used resources, such as books. But nowadays , people only rely on turning on their devices and googling the answer to their questions. Does that mean google is negatively impacting our intelligence? The three main reasons whyhow Google is negatively impacting our intelligence are, that it causes a distraction, negatively impacts our memory, and creates digital amnesia. To begin with, most of us oftenly get distracted by technology. Distraction affects our intelligence because we don’t focus, & and we understand less. In source A: “Is google Making us Stupid?”, it notes, “When we use our computers & our cell phones, were always distracted.” What the quote is determining is that, technology distracts us from the real world. Therefore, google is a distraction and makes us learn less. To add on, memory plays an important role in our intelligence. For example, when you don’t study for a test, you would remember less. The same structure applies to using google as your information to your questions. In Source C it states, “When information is saved externally we usually don’t memorize it.” In other words, limited sources like books would be better since you would memorize it unlike technology Furthermore, the main reason why google is negatively affecting our intelligence is because it creates digital amnesia. About 90% of people who use devices are suffering from digital amnesia which means only a few percentage don’t. In “Google effect,” it demonstrates, “More than 70% of people don’t know their children’s phone number by heart. In addition to people having digital amnesia, this would be a problem because in an emergency who would you call if you don’t even know the phone number? While others would debate that technology impacts our intelligence positively by the less time it takes to find information, what would be the point of learning new information if you would never remember it. Due to the fact that our minds have been replaced by google, we rely on just searching our questions, and therefore not remembering them. In conclusion, technology impacts our intelligence, and our modern world by these three reasons, Google causes a distraction, negatively impacts our memory, and creates digital amnesia. This is important because people could be majorly damaged by technology overtime.
