Please write 5 paragraphs essay that answers the question below.
Sherry Turkle, “Selections from Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other” (New Humanities Reader)
Cathy Davidson, “Project Classroom Makeover” (New Humanities Reader)
Sherry Turkle and Cathy Davidson discuss in their respective texts, “Selection from Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other, and “Project Classroom Makeover”, the results of several experiments that observe the use of advanced technology from an educational perspective. Turkle explores the relationships children form with digital and robotic playmates, and she concludes that these interactions have a significant impact on the children’s social development because it blurs the line between virtual and biological life: “We are at the point of seeing digital objects as both creatures and machines.” (476) In her article, Davidson also recognizes the influence of technology on younger generations: “a generation of kids who, from preschool on, had been transfixed by digital media.” (49) Unlike Turkle, she encourages the use of advanced digital technology in the classroom as an essential instrument. For your second writing assignment please consider the two positions postulated by the authors, and answer the following question: How does the increased use of technology influence our learning process?

For the introduction, there should have a little background information like a summary introduce the two articles and a clear thesis at the end. For each body paragraph, the first sentence should be a topic sentence that supports the thesis and at least two quotes from the article to support this idea. Do not use outside sources, just stick to those two readings. For each quote, there should have an analysis, not a summary! to explain the quote and relate back to the thesis and answer the argument.
