Somehow I came across this book from a documentary called Growing up online and here is this professor argument about how we declining as a Digital Age. So just to let you know that I haven’t read Mark Bauerlein’s book, now I have notice that a lot of kids talked about Internet memes and garage that they look up on the net and for me I give less of a shit about what it really means, I know I haven’t read the facts on today’s society on how the kids today have been degrading and have been getting low grades now what I been listening to recent news I know that some facts are true, I don’t think it’s completely true. His Slogan…Don’t trust anyone that’s under 30? If a young person under 30 reads it! They’ll know what they’re reading plus it’ll sound like an offense to younger people.
Here’s one of the first things I can see why some he’ll argue on it is out there on today’s world but somehow I don’t understand. The internet was created for knowledgeable purposes back in the early 90’s when the internet was starting to become a thing of the future for everyone to use and it was to a tool that they say it was going to make a better future! Today we are living in a Digital Age with content creators creating media on YouTube, make a payment online, To make Appointments online, Schedule a date and etc., The internet has it’s purpose for about everything, I can’t see how we are the dumbest generation, One thing I can point out is I notice some young people do get distracted at school and work from the technology that we do in our daily life’s.
In on of PBS documentaries (Digital Nation) that it examples most teens can be bad at multitasking which I do see that true most part. Since I can’t multitask good myself as well while browsing on the net, But I feel that when I was reading critics reviews. They have given praise on how this professor is right what theory’s he’s been pulling out of the rabbits hat. But somehow I can’t see what’s to blame for teens expect for the stupidity which most youths do nowadays I can say it’s very unlawful and uprightly wrong they have such power to go against any individual. They can, but somehow scientist thinks its some chemical reaction to the brain that’s causing an uproar with the youth with the internet. For teens best friend and good weapon for social dominance on the web with one click away and a short written sentence on twitter it’s powerful weapon that anyone can use for the masses can use to bring a group of friends to start a party.
Another Thing I think the Digital Age is making the youth stupid what others think is because of Video Games! It was the reason that many teens haven’t past their grades from school is because of late night gaming and saying “its addicting and they can’t stop that is why the Kids don’t want to study on their homework” In the documentary of Digital Nation the people there in South Korea is very big in the Gaming Community plus with all the other Eastern Countries like Japan.
If you Think that Dummest Generation by Mark Bauerlein is just plainly straight right or his theory is just garage go on make your comment down below and let me know what you think about his theory?
For me I really can’t support it because just the way puts down the teens in the digital age is just mean!
