Digitally dependent

Watching students trek to the school bus this morning reminded me of a headline I read a couple of months ago:  “College students feel helpless without technology.”  The wire service article indicated that students check tech gadgets at least every 10 minutes.

It’s almost ironic that these digitally-dependent young adults are the same ones who crave independence.
