    Technology may make it easier to accomplish tasks and reduce our cognitive load, but in order to become efficient at using technology we must learn it over time. Because technological innovations are indefinite, we must constantly learn how to be proficient users and most likely, teach others how to use technology as well (such as our parents!). Can you explain how to take and send a video with your cell phone? If so, you have a skill that only a fraction of the world's citizens do. It's worth noting that this particular skill is not adaptive to our survival!
