neitria08 Posted May 9, 2013 Share Posted May 9, 2013 Thanks in advance! As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. Whether the deterioration of humans ability to think for themselves depends on how much people rely on technology to solve problems. There are no proven studies associated with technology and a persons cognitive process. Without technology we wouldn't be able to evolve. Technology has made us to be what we are as people today. First, by using technology people can make information more accessible for themselves. For example instead of searching through phone books a person can just pull out their cellphone or go on the internet to look up a businesses number. The accessibility of anything is in the palm of your hands with technology today. Second by using technology you can find more than one way to solve a problem. For example if you wanted to create different cupcakes for a party but did not know how to do it. If you Google the different flavor types that you wanted the recipes would pop up and the issue would be solved. On the other hand some might argue that you can lose a connection with reality and the people around you. For example getting sucked into a game after you have been playing it for a year a while. you get into the game and don't want to stop even if you keep on losing. However it should not be presumed that by using technology reality becomes a blur. Thus, technology is something on a wide scope with multiple outlets. It is not only important for right now but also in the future as we begin to evolve more. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
