  • Look at History

    We drop back to the 18th Century and we see that children were reading "Pilgrim's Progress" as their bedtime stories, and most adults do not even understand it today. The culture of learning was much different and children were more interested in learning than now due to all the entertainment technology gives children to consume. This is a historical truth, and we cannot say that technology makes children smarter, in fact, it makes them dumber.

  • No, were dumber

    In the 1950's, a high school education was equivalent to a college education now, then we regress into the 1980s and people get dumb, hen we go to today, and- wow, look at kids today.
    A study has shown that most kids today don't know that America is a capitalist country, they don't even know what capitalism is!

  • Not good for you

    Staring at a screen is not good for your brain. Also you can read a document on something and learn something better than what the internet would say. So try to learn from paper so your brain does not become all mush. Computers are good but you need to get used to paper too.

  • I dont get the qeustion

    "Is children smarter because of the internet?" Well seeing that you are on the internet and used horrible grammer im going to choose no. The internet is a huge distration and im saying that from experience not just because thats what i think. Even doing school online it is still crazy hard just to stay on task.

  • It would seem not

    The fact that this topic was phrased as “Is children smarter because of the internet” instead of “Are children smarter because of the internet” strongly suggests that people in general are not more intelligent because of the internet. At least grammar skills have gone down hill. (Us no english good? That's un-possible!)

  • Knowledge isn't Intelligence

    I'm writing this from the perspective of going my youngest days without a computer, followed by my middle/early highschool quest for knowledge years, followed by my years of outside adventure, again followed by my regression to computers as I went through my higher education and enter the work force.

    I've done both, and I can say without a doubt that my computer is an amazing resource for many things, but learning the hard way is true learning. If you want to think inside the box, use your resources and memorize them. If you want to think outside the box, that takes trial and error. My greatest failures in life were often my greatest lessons, and they came from doing things. My brain grows by doing things. Whether or not doing things entails a computer, or the awesome fort you built as a kid, you've got to exercise your brain somehow. Play sports, read, talk to people, ask questions, play games, seek out the amazing and the unknown. There are so many aspects to intelligence. You need to exercise your brain, and work it hard every once and a while. See what it can do. Find your limits and improve on them. The internet really has nothing to do with any of this if you ask me. I think people may be mistaking these learning games as helping the kids learn, and improve their skills, when its not the game itself. Its the drive the game gives the child to overcome challenges, because they know intuitively a game can and will be beaten. It might fit the bill and exercise certain aspects of intelligence, but its not the smart pill. There is no smart pill. You've just got to go out and make an effort to think, somehow.

  • Children are Smart because of the internet.

    I have seen kids going on the internet and playing educational games and I have seen a turn out from before and after because they want to talk about what they have learned because of the internet. Also, their grades in school grow higher than before and it is amazing.

Can I just point out the sheer irony of the wording "Is children smarter?"
