There are a lot of things kids do on the internet other than inappropriate things. He reconciled that according to the M.C Author foundation, kids who go on the internet “gravitated to topics related to sports, religion, school and other local activities in their lives.” (Going online is actually good.) They don’t go on the internet only to meet potentials love interest. He continues his reason with why the internet isn’t such a corrupt place, by bashing stereotype, which said kids waste their time on the internet.

While this is true, parents can aid in teaching their children by alerting them to the dangers that are online, explaining how to research and how to avoid bad situations. Setting time limits and teaching them how to use the Internet as a learning aid are also great ways parents can ensure that their kids have the best of both worlds. When we bought our first computer, I taught all three of my kids what the Internet is, how to use it, how not to use it and how to use it for homework. We discussed things they found, how to stay safe and at any time I could walk into the den and see what they were doing. Anything in life can be a learning experience and I wanted my kids to learn how to learn.
Brainless.com: Rhetorical Strategies in Carr’s “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” Do we depend on the Internet to answer all of our questions? Nicholas Carr, an American author, wrote “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” published in 2008 in The Atlantic, and he argues about the effects of the Internet on literacy, cognition, and culture. Carr begins his argument with the ending scene of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Carr believes that we depend on the Internet more than just looking up the answers in the book ourselves. He is trying to prove that our generation is consumed by the Internet.
Rhetorical Analysis In the article “Is Google Making us Stupid?”, author Nicholas Carr expresses his idea that the internet is taking over society and our thinking process. Google is affecting our abilities to read books, longer articles, and even older writings. Carr believes that we have become so accustomed to the ways of the internet, and we are relying on Google 's ability to sort through the details for us so we don 't have to, in order to get the information we find necessary more efficiently. He finds that this process has become almost too handy, and that it is corrupting us from becoming better educated. Carr writes quite a lengthy article to support his opinion.
Typically my qualities are exceeded by my weaknesses. Things I truly battle with are things like grammar, APA and MLA arranges so when it comes time to compose I could have incredible substance that is truly intriguing yet my evaluation is squashed by sentence pieces and mechanical mistakes. I thought well on the off chance that I haven't got it at this point I should forget about it. In any case, no, from what I have learned this semester and with somewhat more practice I could defeat those issues and could truly add to my writing. In the vast majority of my papers I predominantly concentrate on the substance.

Stating Google has become so powerful that it can practically predict what one wants to find on the internet. In the end, Carr, is persuading people that to remain keen and intelligent they should always fall back on the “Traditional” ways to read, but at the same time it doesn’t hurt to skim an article to retain what is necessary. So, his message is that Google is not actually making people stupid, it is just making people forget the traditional sense of reading which is causing the lack of attention in today’s world compared to when there were no computers, internet, or Google. I feel the rapid changes of the digital era haven’t too much affected me. I grew up in an age where devices and communications were on an uproar.
Dockterman builds up her argument to persuade her audience by including facts to support her opinion. Dockterman includes facts from studies that have been involved with children developing with technology, like M I T. The facts support and help develop Dockterman’s opinion by stating how giving kids the advantages of technology can help them learn at a younger age and stay up to date with different ways of applying to jobs/colleges. At the beginning of Dockterman’s essay she includes statistics showing how much technology effects children now in everyday life. She also then points out how there are many parents sending their children to camps for a technology detox. Dockterman gives examples of how parents are pushing their children away
Student Service Learning Project Reflection I. Summarize the issue and life-span stage that you chose as a focus for your website page. a. Why did you choose this life-span stage? I like the early childhood stage because of the numerous factors that children come across. In this stage, the child is learning right from wrong and most of the times those rituals remain with that child in the near future.
They are called educational games which target specific field or learning and are also used in higher education and are called simulation/simulator games. Educational games are effective, especially for the children because they catch their attention and motivate them. “Seventy-four percent of K-8 teachers use digital games in classroom and fifty-six percent of parents say video games affects their children in a positive way” (Lofgren, 2015). Bringing out good results from video game depends with the right selection of game and how the games are
Texting and its effects on complicated-formal writings compared to the theory that Google, along with all other search engines, is making those that use them stupid. While both articles discuss the pros and cons of two well respected technological services, the services themselves are polar opposites and the ideals regarding the effects of both services vary as well. “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” argues that overuse of search engines, can lead to the permanent inability to process long articles and retain large amounts of information from essays/ long papers. While “Does Texting Affect Writing” makes the case that, while texting can potentially have an impact on our formal writing skills, the errors found in papers are typically caused by force-of-habit because of the poor instincts we develop due to the use of abbreviations, poor punctuation and spelling errors in our texting. However, these habits can be broken and fixed with grammar practice and time and are not permanent like the effects caused by Google are told to
Lesson 1, Activity 1 In the article “Is Google Making Us Stupid”, author, Nicholas Carr, describes the how complex the information age and believes that the internet weakens reading concentration our civilization. Thought the internet provides advantages of immediate access for searching, Carr feels the internet is decreasing people’s ability to read information on a deeper level. I do not agree with his point of view. I do not believe that your capacity to concentrate decreases by using the internet. For example, Carr supports a blog article, from Bruce Friedman, which believes the internet alters mental habits and has the ability to loose reading focus.
In the article Is Google Making Us Stupid by Nicholas Carr, published in, The Atlantic Monthly, Nicholas uses opinion based facts to defend his theory that this generation 's intelligence is being extinguished by the internet. His opinion towards our generation can be summarized by the term Juvenoia: “ the fear or hostility directed by an older generation toward a younger one, or toward youth culture in general” a term coined by David Finkelhor. This “fear or hostility” that Carr directs toward our generation is based on the beliefs and technology he grew up with. However, Carr bases his opinions on the comparison of our generation to his. This comparison being “research that once required days in the stacks or periodical rooms of libraries can now be done in minutes”(Carr par 3).
Carr’s argument that the internet is making us stupid is very easy to argue when thinking about all the resources we have today. For example like wikipedia, online schooling and even online college courses all things allowed by the web. Many people use wikipedia to help them learn about an unknown subject that will help them gain more information. The internet allows us to learn more about particular subjects, giving us more knowledge and making us feel less stupid. What people fail to realize is that although the internet has an endless amount of information, we the users don 't try to access all of it.
The true definition of a “reading disorder” was not defined properly. This make it harder for readers to understand Ferreday due to the lack of understanding of what a “reading disorder” is in context of her argument. She supports her statements by using different sources as supporting evidence. The random transition between the different sources to support her argument aids in creating confusion for readers as well as lack of drive to read this literary work to completion. The structure of the article determines the easiness of comprehension of the main
