I don't think technology is making us dumber at all. In fact, I think it has the opposite effect. The Flynn Effect discusses this phenomenon. Here is a link: http://www.indiana.edu/~intell/flynneffect.shtml

Also, there is a book by Steven Johnson that covers exactly how technology is improving our intelligence and abilities to understand our increasingly complicated world.

While I agree that technology is causing our youth to learn different skills then were necessary just a short time ago, they are no longer necessary.

I am 29 years old, and on the cusp of technology. I learned how to read a map and make change, but some of my peers did not.
