Wikipedia, Google Search, how powerful tools will make kids powerless

From techradar:

Legendary British inventor David Baylis has claimed that the internet, and Google specifically, is making a new generation of children ‘brain-dead.’

The 75-year-oldĀ creator of the wind-up radio, says kids of today aren’t learning practical skills and will be unable to make anything with their hands as a result.

Baylis told the Daily Mail that children are becoming too reliant on instant Google searches and expressed a concern for the next generation of inventors in the UK.

He said: “Children have got to be taught hands-on, and not to become mobile phone or computer dependent.

“They are dependent on Google searches,” he added. “A lot of kids will become fairly brain-dead if they become so dependent on the internet, because they will not be able to do things in the old-fashioned way.”
