Do You Control Your Technology? Or Does It Control You?
In the past few years, technology has had a major impact on human society. We have been fascinated by the new technology so much that it has become an addiction. Most people today are using some type of high tech technology. Almost everything now a days can be done through technology. Schools are now using laptops, tablets , and iPads instead of pencil and paper. This can be a good thing at times. We have these things and it makes us resist against the things that can be more useful to us in the long run. Like something as little as reading a book. Reading books helps you with writing reading and comprehension but most teens now in society would never think of using these things to access a book. They would rather be on Twitter, Instagram, or Vine. In society today technology is controlling us.
Social interaction has been a big impact on our society today. Technology has become a big part of this social interaction. Technology has expanded in so many different ways and the society now seems to be so obsessed with the things that are being made. There are multiple studies, books, articles, and videos that give us real life examples and facts that support this reasoning. ‘’Today’s children spend an average of 15 hours a week watching television, playing video games, and surfing the Internet. Is there any wonder why childhood obesity has risen at alarming rates? Laptops, PDAs, pagers, cell phones…the technological devices that were supposed to make our lives simpler are taking away our lives. ‘’ This is a quote from an article that I read. This article talk about how children spend a lot of time on technology and how it damages us.This can be true at time because today we see a lot of kids watching a lot of tv playing a lot of video games and also being on cell phones a lot. Using all of this technology can damage us in a way that can not benefit us in life.
Things that have to do with technology has a big effect on children teens and kids too. These phones and other thing can affect the children's learning it is hampering their attention spans and ability to persevere in the face of challenging tasks. Having these things can make it harder for students to pay attention. It can also make them think about looking thing up on their phone or computer instead of thinking. These things are very bad because in the long run it can hurt a lot of people's education. Education is a big part of our lives and these technology seems to be getting in the way of good learning habits to help our children in our society. ‘’A majority (67%) can’t go more than one hour without using some sort of digital technology, with 40% not lasting more than 10 minutes.’’ Using this quote can conclude that this is not a good thing to have with a child in a classroom.
In society today technology is controlling us. through out this essay I have informed you on two articles that have to do with technology in our world today. Having all of this technology is controlling by being so addictive. Most people in the society today has some type of technology and this is not a good thing. It can harm us in so many ways that we need to soon realize before it is too late.
