Google: Responsible for low creativity in children?
Google is a marvelous innovation in IT sector, introduced by two students of Stanford University and therefore now everything in the cyber space revolves around the search engine giant. It has provided the certainty that anything in world could be found with just a few clicks. But the question here is not what Google has done to the world but to us, our brain to be specific.
I had no idea about this unless I was made to put some effort by myself to produce a report to be submitted at school. I am not praising in any sense but yes, I am good at technology but without getting facts from the internet it becomes little difficult to sound enticing.
What do you feel? Have you ever felt that once you start presenting copied content, it becomes easier to complete your assignments?
Google is also affecting children, in young age we all are dreamers, we read books, find new information via pictures, share with friends and enjoy. With Web 2.0 information has become lame. You just open website, enter what you want and the result appears.
No brainstorming, nothing therefore kids of the future and current times would lack the creativity and imagination which is god’s gift to mankind.
Google instant is a new technology that brings faster results without page reloading and delays. Very innovative but it’s promoting the same thing, search if you don’t know. No wonders, people are so bad in coding and don’t remember much!
Coming back to the point, plagiarizing today is very common, our school articles, tuition work, reports etc. are all plagiarized, one original author uses his brain and others just take advantage of easy content accessibility on the web.
Scientists have proven with their experiments that if a muscle is not used for long, it becomes weak and sometimes non-functional and our human brain is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it becomes.
Google and websites like Wikipedia.com are depriving us of regular brainstorming that is needed for healthy thinking and new ideas.
So what is the solution?
Solution is simple, break your work in simple portions and search only for facts, create a layout, say if you want to write an article about Sachin Tendulkar, write your views, what you feel about him and not what a top author does because that won’t be accountable to you.
Search only the fact that doesn’t change like how many runs he scored etc. Think creatively; write about what he can constructively for future and your article would take you miles, because it embeds “YOUR PERSONAL TOUCH“.
