Is Google Making Us Stupid?

Matt Gillis, Emily Poskrobko,Katie Siemianowski

Video Intro
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmDvYIfl9IA
Net as a Universal Medium
  • Immediate access to rich stores of information
  • Comes at a price
Marshall McLuhan

“Media are not just passive channels of information. They supply the stuff of thought, but they also shape the process of thought.”

Staccato Quality
  • Freidman- quickly scanning short passages of text from many sources online
  • McLuhan- fight to stay focused on longer pieces of writing
“Skimming Activity”
  • University College London- study of online research habits
  • Hopping from one source to another
  • Rarely return to one already visited
Psychologists Say…
  • Maryanne Wolf (Tufts)- web reading puts efficiency and immediacy above all else
  • Weaken capacity for deep reading
  • Ability to interpret text and make mental connections is weakened
Effects on the… SQUIRREL!
  • James Olds- “The brain has the ability to reprogram itself on the fly, altering the way it functions.”
  • Scattering attention span, diffusing concentration, can’t process information
  • Pop-up ads, shortening of articles, hyperlinks (websites cater to our short-attention spans)
Pancakes!
  • Pancake People: access to many websites, but don’t retain much information, don’t go in depth (result of skimming activity)
What Students Don’t Know
  • Research process- students overuse Google, misuse scholarly databases
  • 30 students interviewed- mentioned Google 115 times (twice as much as any other search engine)
  • Students not good at using Google, can’t build a search that produced good sources
Google (verb)
  • Google Defense:
    • More info to access
    • Faster understanding
    • More productive as thinkers

“Our writing equipment takes part in the forming of our thoughts.”

-Nietzsche
