Well this topic is really a debatable one. But I have my own thoughts and explanation on this.
In this new age, people are so dependent on search engines that if someone could not find any object/thing in their home, they tend to feel like to have a search engine to search for it. The recent upgrade of Google search algorithm is a good example of how much we are dependent on the search engine( now a day’s people instead of searching a word an sentence is keyed in to search) this is the reason why Google have upgrade their search algorithm. This entire introduction is fine; the real devil (the topic) goes like this,
Initial days when search engines entered internet world, people used it as a tool for information, since human beings tendency is laziness and attracted towards readily available solutions. Slowly people started using search engines for everything and anything so much so that if a software company doesn’t have search engine the productivity will come down drastically and nearly 70% employees work will not proceed.
Now a day’s even the school going kids are using search engines extensively for their day to day homework, paintings, drawings, craft work and other assignments. This is even been encouraged by their parents. The consequences is really danger, it’s kind of slow poison to the kid. By cultivating this kind of habit the creative thinking in child is snatched away and when they grow bigger and enter profession life their career will be at stake with no creativity/thinking ability, even if they possess some it lacks of innovative and intuitive.
Encourage kids to think more and explore more on how to achieve a solution/task, rather than finding the solution using search engines. There could be many reasons why parents encourage their kids or try to achieve their assignments / tasks using readily available solutions. One of the reason could be because of the fellow student/neighbor kids getting good marks by copying someone else idea from the internet and getting the marks, but what I advice is that even your kid fails by trying to solve a problem/task/assignment by his/her own thinking is very great rather than copying it from some other ideas. By cultivating the habit of thinking on own kids develop creativity, so called innovative and intuitive will be developed by the kids.
The consequences of using search engines is much more, kids now a day’s hardly read books for their seminars, presentations.
Quality of work by white collar professionals is becoming less and also they lack the innovation.
Well I am not totally against search engines, it completely depends on the one how he/she uses it. I feel it should not be used as a tool for complete solution.
Finally the above thoughts are not copied from any of the forum or search engines, it is own thinking:wink:
