Oes the internet make you smarter or dumber

Hi,

As I already mentioned Im NOT a native speaker so please try to write the paper with simple words.
It is a CRITIQUE essay and the topic is does the internet make you smarter or dumber”.
Here are some few informations the professor gave us:

This critique essay will ask you to do just that: you will have to respond to and engage a single text in a meaningful way so that itas clear to your readers what the authoras arguments are and what you think about the authoras arguments.
So far this semester, we have looked at a few poems and an essay that all argue that there is more than one way to gain knowledge about the world and about the richness and complexity of human experience.

Thank you.
