Ayo, I’ m tired of using technology’ sings 50 cent… Good for him, since some people say technology is bad for our brains. Is the Google-generation not using their brains anymore? According to Gary Small technology in general, and the internet more specifically can have an added value as long as you do not overdo it. You can read a dutch article about it in De Standaard. Another study even shows how enriching the new media are to teens.

“According to researchers, young people are motivated to learn from their peers, as well as adults, online. The Internet provides new kinds of public spaces for youth to interact and receive feedback from one another. This may be different from how students are often asked to learn in schools.”

And beware of a techno-brain burn-out.
