Everyone has an encyclopaedia in their pocket, interconnected with it so you can find out any fact about anything more or less instantly.
And while that is definitely a power for good it’s interesting that it hasn’t made people smarter necessarily, because that alone is static knowledge.
It’s information that exists by itself, very useful for quizzes and settling arguments, but not for building you as a person. For that you need applied knowledge, to be able to look something up, learn it and apply it to a real situation or use it to deepen an overall understanding of topic.
Unlimited access to information doesn’t make you better at problem solving, although it can make it easier, solving problems will make you better at problem solving.
The biggest advantage may be that it’s removed a lot of the need for rote learning, because why learn a fact when you can check it in seconds? You can use the time spent memorising on doing something that moves forwards and figuring out how to use the fact you’ve wrote learned, and the power of using it is if you use it enough you’ll memorise it anyway.
