Too much Technology, not enough Creativity?

Is the heavy use of technology by this generation of children going to result in adults that are unable to think for themselves, to think laterally or to create something in the real world, not on a computer screen?

Yes as a parent I do worry about this. You want your kids to have access to the technology so they don't get left behind. Certainly the schools are pushing computer literacy. But I think as with everything in life you have to strike a balance and just hope that other parents try to achieve that. I worry we are breeding a generation of people who never wait for anything, they have immediate access, buy things on credit whether they can afford them or not and are in constant touch. How would they fare alone on a desert island after a catastrophe!
