Abstract In " The Shallows. What the Internet is doing to our Brains, " Nicholas Carr investigates the various ways technology is becoming both enlightening and disturbingly influential in the learning, neurological, and decision-making ethos of the human race. He offers insights into side effects of the Internet on our ability to focus and think critically about the things we read, see, and discuss. This review challenges the notion that historical effects of the book and the Internet are disparate in nature, and argues for a more balanced approach to the way we view technology fitting into society and learning as we continue to change over time. In addition, the relationship between technology and higher education and the ways they are becoming more reliant upon one another for continued change and increased effectiveness is discussed.
