Is Auto Correct is Dumbing Us Down?
Problem: I have been having problems with my assignments in class. It’s like I forget my elementary basics when it comes to writing. You might laugh but, I blame it on my texting making me dumb.
Tip from Tia: The things we didn’t have to worry about, only a short decade ago. Is Auto Correct is Dumbing Us Down? (see what I did there, ha!)
The truth is, auto correct is dumbing us down. Writing is a skill we learned. And just like any skill, if you don’t use it; you lose it. Sadly, it has become easier and acceptable to have auto correct on our reliable devices. It saves us time and people have gotten good at deciphering what we mean to say.
It’s been an age old question. Who is the better writer women or men?
Whether it be a man or woman writing, write with skill and intent. Both men and women have strong points in writing.
Some interesting findings from the infographic at Grammarly showed
- Women are almost twice as likely than men to spend time on character development.
- Men are more likely to write short and straightforward sentences.
Just like any skill, you must remember to practice. And, when it comes to class assignments and the workforce, proper grammar and spelling is thought to reflect your intelligence. I found It’s acceptable and helpful to use resources like spell check and sites like Grammarly.
