More on Attribute Words: Wise

‘Modern technology has not made us wiser.’ What is your view?

Oxford English Dictionary (adj.): having or showing experience, knowledge, and good judgement

Taking the example of Information Technology, specifically the Internet.

  • Do we really learn better from the past with the internet than we were without it in the past?
  • Are we really more knowledgeable with the internet today than we were without it in the past?
  • Do we make really better judgments with the internet today than we did without it in the past?

Also, please do not write another technology essay without mentioning the specific technology involved. The ambiguity really doesn’t help. If ‘technology’ has made education more engaging for instance, what kind of technology are you talking about? The pen? The computer? The whiteboard?

Specify the type please. Here’s a simple list:

Digital technology
Energy technology
Green/Environmental technology
Information technology (and ICT)
Media technology
Medical technology
Transport technology
Etc.
