Being an English major I find that my experience to be enlightening. I’ve read some new classics, but I’ve also delved further into classics I love. Then there is the new wave of technological English that has piqued my interest introduced in classes. I’ve always found different forms of literature or using words to be an interest of mine. Then again I am a word person. So English really does suit me as a profession. As far as research goes if it means with my major or course then yes. Writing essays you have to research for proof to defend your essays with. If it is with technology then I’ve used technology with my research as technology helps me achieve the research I need faster. I can’t sit for hours trying to find the right books although if I had the time I wouldn’t mind it. However, with technology I can find what I need for my research easier and faster than I ever could.
To use technology to think with I’m not sure if I do but I guess playing games on technology counts? It forces me to think about where things go and how to place things and how to get to things. However, a technology becomes more advanced I am sure they will find a way to make it helpful in matters of thinking. After all we already use a calculator for helping us think and solve problems. Or the computer for it provides us ways to write and research things that we think about. So I guess in truth technology does help us in many ways with our thinking process. Even if it seems minimal compared to other areas of technology that help scientists discover things. Yet technology is everywhere so there are bound to be more ways in which technology can help us think about things.
