Technology's effect on the world
Technology in classrooms
For the first time in twelve years of school I was given the opportunity to use a laptop in class for school work. I feel it has changed the whole aspect of school. Instead of writing on paper students can type up a essay, turn it in, and not even be in the class. Although this can be a huge benefit for the student, it adds alot of reponsibility also.
Weekend without technology
What are the pros and cons of technology? I wanted to find out, so one weekend I went technology free. Technology free, meaning three days without any technology- no smart phone, television or internet. It was a very long weekend! You do not realize how dependent you are on technology until you don't have it. Being without technology did make me slow down and really pay attention to the things I was doing. I appreciated the little things in life more. On the other hand, I felt detached from the world. I felt like I was missing out on important information.
