A person who could calculate standard deviation of first 100 prime numbers in just 2 minutes in college struggles to multiply 2 digit by 2 digit number now because of technology. Yes he is a quality coordinator of a company for the past two years. He has been using excel,calculator etc... now he has lost interest in numbers !!!

A person who could write an english essay without any spelling mistake , now he struggles to write a paragraph in notepad with out spell check.

Just try calculating numbers with out calculator or computer then we people will find the difficulties.Write a paragraph in notepad then we will find the difficulties and last but not least try to write two pages of a letter then we will find the difference in our handwriting from college days to now !!

(this is meant to people who had good handwriting , maths skill and english skills,

if we do not have please do not try unduly .. results may not be significant difference)

There are so many examples .. this post is because we develop so many skills through technology. Even One day if we do not have technology we struggle a lot in very basics which is much more important than the former..

I am not blaming technology .. we need to practise to calculate mental maths , grammatical english everyday 10 mins to exercise our basics. It will help in teaching our next generation. When we are asked to teach linear algebra or number theory to our son / daughter or relations that time we should not feel ashamed !!

Thanks
