When you want to find out the weather, the definition of a word, or maybe your
homework assignment due next period, where do you look? I'm guessing most people would agree that their first thought is, "I'll check my phone." My generation is lucky to be able to find out almost anything they want with a few taps of their fingertips, and we definitely take advantage of it. Not that it's a bad thing, but we should probably consider the consequences. A study conducted by Harvard scientists in 2011 showed that a college student is less likely to remember information if they know they can easily look it up later. This shows that instead of relying on our brains to store long-term information, we can sometimes subconsciously leave it to Google.
