I don’t think that smart technology is making us dumber or smarter in all honesty. I think that there are certain parts of technology that make us smarter. For example look at all the young children in elementary who are more advanced at using technology than adults. Children growing up in a technology filled society learn much more in my opinion. There are so many games that make kids use their brain and help them learn. There are also parts of technology that make us dumber like when teens are sitting on their phones for hours on end on social media, that’s really not doing much for our brains. However reading things on social media could be a benefit in strengthening your reading skills. Overall I think that there are positive and negative effects of technology and if they make us dumber or smarter.
