Technology period change lives!

They say the internet and television makes us dumber, if you ask me it taught me everything I know and more. I sit in class all day listening to lecturing and taking notes, and doing some activities, none of which has taught me as much as the internet has. I think it's because i dont show interest in learing things that dont benefit me right away. For , example when I'm in class my teacher I'll try and teach me a new math problem, my first thought is that this I'll never help me in life, and it'll take me awhile to understand it. Learning the formatting for facebook takes me about 15 minutes to learn and i'll be good at it. People say the internet and televison makes us dumber but in reality it makes us smarter seeing a visual at all times and trying to keep up with the new trend has actually helped me in school and picking my major, so i believe the only way to prove it makes us dumber is by actually running test and than well really see!

The news, oh boy do we love the news. In class we read another Chuck Klosterman article and he was talking about the news, from my understanding about how it can be relevant and irrelevant at times. We watched a serious of news clips and class some relevant and others very irrelevant. An example of a relevant news clip we watched would have to be about the kids drinking hand sanitizer to get drunk its relevant because it provides news thats allowing people to be aware, and theres something we can do about it. Planes blowing, because of the wind is very irrelevant and a waste of air time because there
s news out there that is far more important.
