Smartphone, Smart Human?

“Technology doesn’t cause intellectual stagnation, but it enables new forms of it if we are complacent.

Technology empowers intellectual enrichment and our ability to indulge and act on our curiosity.

With a smartphone, for example, you have the sum total of human knowledge in your pocket and can reach practically any person on the planet.

What will you do with that incredible power? Entertain yourself or change the world?” (O’Neill, 2017, p.43).
