    • Christopher, I really enjoyed reading your article! This is something I’ve actually wondered about countless times. I mean in our society it’s so obvious that kids are overcome by technology. It’s crazy seeing infants who can’t even walk yet, already knowing how to use a phone. When I was a kid I wasn’t even confronted with so much technology until my 8th grade year. I agree with your evidence and discussions that technology has resulted in obesity in our country. Not only do we eat bad foods, but we do nothing physical to help our health. I think this is such an important thing to talk about because pretty soon our youth will be overrun by this technology. It’s important that we know how to return to our roots because I believe one day all this technology will disappear. I found this article you might enjoy reading (https://www.huffingtonpost.com/cris-rowan/technology-children-negative-impact_b_3343245.html) Keep writing!!

    • Christopher, your article was really interesting to read.The statistic provided by the US Center for Disease and Prevention is terrifying. I find it hard to believe that statistic. While our generation is definitely becoming increasingly addicted to cellphones and TVs, I don’t believe this is necessarily impeding our creativity. While yes, we are no longer as proactive as previous generations, teenagers are just using a different medium to express creativity today. Also, the lack of outdoors activities is not entirely the fault of technology as well. Schools used to require a certain amount of athletics during school time. It was a commonly recognized fact that exercise promoted intellectual growth. However, that no longer is the case because the education system has been pressured to remove these activities in favor of more classes, etc.
      I think you’ll find this article interesting to look at: https://online.purdue.edu/ldt/learning-design-technology/resources/how-has-technology-changed-education

    • Hey Christopher! I loved reading about this topic. I believe that especially as Americans, we can see this addiction of technology all around us and even in ourselves sometimes. I do believe it’s true that we live in a time where our technology could lead us to great discoveries and innovations, but how easy will it be to stay on the right side of technology? I specifically think that technology right now is playing a big role in our education, both positively and negatively. Here’s an article that goes more into depth about technology in education: http://edtechreview.in/trends-insights/insights/277-role-of-technology-in-21st-century

    • Hello Christopher, I found your article interesting! Depending on who you ask, this problem is either critically irrelevant or negligible to our generation. While you did say that cellphones are making us “shallow thinkers”, I would like to argue another point. I find that technology and cellphones, especially, allow younger generations access to incredible amounts of information. As a result, we are shifting away from the traditional forms of research (finding a topic and expounding information predominantly from one source) and instead focuses on quantity over quality. While we do lack in-depth knowledge about any one topic, we often make up for it in the amount of supporting evidence from diverse sources and abstracts to support our information. Here is an article I think you would find interesting to read regarding your topic: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2008/07/is-google-making-us-stupid/306868/

    • Christopher,

      This topic was very interesting to read as i have had this same question in my head. I would say technology does help and also hurt creativity. I personally think technology helps people learn about more things easier than reading books, it helps with people who can’t afford books and need free access to information. This article i read talk about the good and the bad about technology on the youth i think it’d be a good read for you https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-moment-youth/201211/generation-tech-the-good-bad-and-scary

    • Christopher, I agree that technology has an impact on the ability of kids to find a creative outlet. However, I don’t think that it is necessarily leading to a less creative society. Technology allows many people to find access to more resources that allow them to grow in creativity. I think that we as a society need to prioritize how much time we spend on electronics. When used too much, it hinders our ability to experience boredom and therefore have our own creative enlightenment. Here is an article that I think best describes an alternative viewpoint (https://www.forbes.com/sites/gregsatell/2014/01/27/how-technology-enhances-creativity/#5f7ce42c3f50).

    • Chris,

      I really enjoyed your post because of how relatable it was for me. I feel the same way about the cost of college, it is a little bit pricey. As a high school senior, waiting to move out and follow his dreams. I feel moving away and going to college is the best choice but, wanting to go out of state is hard for most people to do. The cost is so high just to go out of state. without receiving any kind of financial aid this move may seem impossible. I think college prices should be a little bit lower and we should be given a better opportunity to go out of state. below I left a link of why some kids go to community colleges to get more financial money to be able to expand and go beyond where they desire. thank you for your post.

    • Christopher, i can tell there is a lot of emotion coming from this post , and if you list times of racism or discrimination i will happily fight them with you but it’s such a problem when people claim victimhood but never prove it. i need to know specifically if you want others help. statistically speaking african americans have a higher chance of getting into college they just dont take that chance. and the picture you used has thought and good intent behind it but i just dont see police brutality anywhere. and again if you can point any instance for me i will gladly stand behind you but i just dont see it.

    • this six word memoir is something a lot of people should see to understand. it only takes those six words to impact our thinking. this post speaks truths and it’s sad how people don’t understand how hard people fight to do better.

    • The images with the quotes are very clever and they are meaningful

    • the picture shows it all this is very powerful.
