After reading the articles, I asked myself whether the arguments around technology and literacy contradicted the popular belief that technology improved education. I’ve had discussions not only with my classmates but my mentors as well who have differing opinions about the impact of technology. In a history class, I took my last year of high school, my teacher advised us to take handwritten notes because it would improve our understanding of the topic. Yet, I had typed the notes for my other classes excluding his. Rather than technology impacting our abilities as writers, it is how technology affects our attention span to hone everyday skills.
