I feel the internet is making us smarter and as you mentioned, dumber. If it wasn't for the Internet, we'd all be bored... Wouldn't we? I would at least be dead if it was not for the internet, because I have nothing else to do at my house
The internet helps us and other children/youth in need of research for projects or homework assignments. It also helps us gather information that we do not know about! The internet also could make as dumber because were addicted to it and tend to misuse it for games at other things.
