I have noticed a huge shift in the way students engage now compared to the 90's. Technology is everywhere and access to the internet and social media is readily available. I have noticed that the attention span of the students are much shorter and their desire to research topics more in-depth is not there. I have found myself utilizing the internet for quick references. I now feel that with quick access to information that I do not need to memorize facts. I have also noticed that I skim a lot more and do not read everything. It is great to have all of this information easily accessible, but I fear that it is going to create a society with no patients, small attention span, little face-to-face communication skills, and too much reliance on technology for information. I would hate to see what the world would do if we had no more power.
