I work in the education sector, and I am constantly trying to justify the modern generation's use of technology to my peers. I am trying to convince my fellow colleagues that the increased use of technology does not have an overall negative effect on our generation's language skills. Sometimes I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle.I don't understand why people are downgrading the grammar corrections above. I sincerely hope that we, as a technology savvy people, have not developed such a disdain for effective communication because we are lazy. Why is it that we hold such contempt for someone who cannot remove themselves from a pixelated fire on an imaginary in-game floor, but we defend another person who is too slack to learn the difference between "than" and "then"?
