The main issue presented in the article is about geographical learning and how all these changes in technology have altered the way that we pay attention and process new information. With the new technologies in the world, we as a people have become more and more dependent on the Internet and social media for knowledge as opposed to books and journals. This shift in learning behavior and acquisition of knowledge is representative of the way that people think and behave today. People have been shown to have shorter attention spans and are shown to read way less than we used to. Even the way that we make decisions has changed as we have evolved and started to become overwhelmed when we are presented with too much information at once. Our shift in cognitive skills and knowledge acquisition has led to a change in technology as well; online journals have begun to show previews of articles, allow people to comment and post about articles like they do on social media sites, and some even have twitter accounts where they post articles. With academic journal twitters and social media as a main source of knowledge for a lot of people, we can only hope that our skills as human beings won't soon be replaced by technology as well.
