More F451 Extras for Pre-AP

In addition to Nick Carr’s article “Is Google Making Us Stupid?”, you need to view this talk by the author of The Paradox of Choice (we did this in class on Tuesday 11/8) and complete this corresponding worksheet.

Finally, after reading the excerpt from Everything Bad is Good for You I handed out in class, you need to respond to the following two questions before class on Thursday:

1.) According to author Steven Johnson, what are the cognitive benefits of playing video games?

2.) How are his arguments in line with and/or in opposition to arguments made in Fahrenheit 451, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?”, and The Paradox of Choice?
