Google is Changing Our Memory

Click infographic to enlarge.
We were taught in school how to retain information and expand our memories so important details are available to us by recall. Well, with the advent of new technologies and the constant availability of the Internet, this is changing – we no longer need to remember all the details.

The primary resource for this off-brain storage is Google. We now know how to quickly find a fact, detail, phone number or location without needing to remember it in our brains. The question is, what will be the long term impact of this new form of memory management?

To give you some idea of how this change is occurring, Onlinecolleges.net created this infographic.
