Do you think college students are too dependent on computers?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on May 8, 2007
“No. For me personally, I really appreciate always having access to e-mail and the Internet. I just think it makes communication that much easier and inexpensive. I see it as more of a liberation than a dependency.”
“No. Generally computers are only a tool that equally reveals your talents and ineptitude. They allow you to do good things better and bad things worse.”
“I don’t think so. That’s like asking if the Plains Indians were too dependent on the buffalo. Aside from fossil fuels, computers are the linchpin of our entire economy.”
“No, because the system is set up that way. Students are often forced to use computers as their only means of finding out their assignments and responsibilities. I would say that the dependence lies on the other side of the blackboard.”
