Note that technology is not limited to gadgets and other electronic devices. Technology also includes simple machines and tools we use in our daily lives to make it easier.

It's true we're dependent on technology a lot nowadays, though I wouldn't consider it a bad thing necessarily. I mean, we're all reliant on vaccines and medical care over our natural immune system. Technology has really helped make us more aware and smarter, we're more connected than ever. I don't think our dependence is a bad thing, we've accomplished a lot and made great scientific progress thanks to the information age. We're only going to become more and more reliant as more and more things are becoming technological. Heck, even our watches are going to become technological as smart watches become a thing. I think we should just learn to adapt and make sure technology is used for better reasons, rather than all of it just being mindless social media freaks. And I do think we should still know mathematics and have a strong general knowledge rather than looking up things on a computer all the time.

I would debate you but it doesn't let me, try either searching up information on the interwebs or creating a new debate and challenge me.Then I will give you my argument and some sources with it.

Capitalize word say the beginning of a sentence, don't end a quote with a period and then continue the sentence. Use a comma if you're not ending the sentence at the end of the quote. If a word starts with a vowel the article should be "an" not "a." Avoid using "so" as much as possible. Just a safe practice.
