The ability to go online, search multiple websites in seconds, and not have to leave the comfort of your living room has made it easier for students to find what they need for classes they are taking. With so much information available at our fingertips today, students are not forced to actually acquire the knowledge they need to learn. In the past, students would have to go to the library and research topics, and as they read about the subject in books, they would actually retain some of the material and be able to use it in the future. The students in today’s society have it easy compared to what it used to be, and with Google ever expanding, student projects are becoming easier and easier. All it takes is a second, and you can find whatever you want in minutes. Students just regurgitate the information they find online and put it into whatever they are doing. In everyday life, technology we have today has changed the way we all live today. The biggest issue that is making this change in society is social media. Social media has made people today more antisocial and allows people to see what is happening on a global scale at their fingertips. Another way that society has changed is video games. Instead of being physically active, people would rather sit inside and play games all day. These are just a few ways that technology and power search has changed academics and society as a whole.
