The _____ over the years has decreased face-to-face human interaction.
Many of the younger generation rely on this network to ‘socialize’ with
family and friends instead of meeting them in person or a phone call. It
creates this barrier between people and causes them to rely heavily on it
for not only school, but also work. Why would someone sacrifice a
physical novel to read it through a screen? Or watch Youtube videos
instead of television with the family? It is a strange system that has
created newfound problems with is overly broad spectrum and ability to
enable digital danger to those who use it.
Go somewhere on campus everyday for 15min and look around: What do we
take for granted?
Open up for questions of ‘why?’
Why does something HAVE to be this way?
Attempt to strengthen your imagination so you can think of new ways to go about
something
