Technology has changed the way we operate in our day-to-day lives. From driving to work to cooking in the kitchen, from the way we do research to the ways we entertain ourselves, all of us are affected by technology. And now Children are using it to finish their homework.
This was clearly exhibited by a six-year-old, who smartly utilised Alexa, the virtual assistant developed by Amazon, to help him solve a subtraction math problems.However, the little boy was caught in the act by his mother.
Yerelyn Cueva, the mother of the little kid, shared the video of her son Jariel asking the Echo device to solve some math sums for him. “Should I whoop him now or later,” she captioned the short clip, which went viral on social media.
Talking about the viral incident to a foreign news outlet, Cueva said, “It was just any regular day of doing homework. I am in the living room, and I overheard him asking Alexa some math problems, and I could not believe it! What you don’t see is after he says, ‘Thank you, Alexa, for helping me with my homework.’”
The clip, which has over 8 million views, was widely shared on several social media platforms, with many calling the child, “Einstein in the making.”
