Phones! And Dead Brain Cells?
Are phones Absorbing Our Life?
Do you think digital distraction is a big issue for readers today?
I think digital distraction is a real issue because learners are spending all their time on phones and no time with friends and family. Also, I think that if you are more careful and try to keep everything in check it is possible for it not to be a problem. According to the text on page 8 is says, "...these interruptions are hard on your overtaxed brain." Our brains get overwhelmed with everything when we try to do too much at once. On page 7 the author says," You're doing homework but hey, why not check latest NBA rankings?" Every time you take a break from doing homework and check your phone you loose your concentration and have to regain it. I believe that if teens would really try to make this problem under control they could but currently this is a problem.
