The next exceptional technology trend – Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), and Extended Reality (ER). VR immerses the user in an environment while AR enhances their environment. Although this technology trend has primarily been used for gaming thus far, it has also been used for training, as with VirtualShip, a simulation software used to train U.S. Navy, Army and Coast Guard ship captains.
Modern technology has enabled monitoring of large populations of live cells over extended time periods in experimental settings. Live imaging of cell populations growing in a culture vessel has been widely adopted in biomedical experiments. Such experiments create large numbers of time-lapse images, and the information embedded in these images holds tremendous promise for scientific discovery. The growing amount of such data calls for automated or semi-automated computer vision tools to detect and analyze the dynamic cellular processes, and to extract the information necessary for biomedical study.
Live cells are often of low contrast with little natural pigmentation; therefore, they usually need to be stained or fixed in order to be visible under bright field microscopy or fluorescence microscopy. However, fixing or staining may destroy the cells or introduce artifacts. Label-free imaging, in particular phase contrast microscopy, is highly desirable for live cell imaging because it allows cells to be examined in their natural state, and therefore enables live cell imaging over extended time periods. We focus in this chapter on analyzing time-lapse images from phase contrast microscopy.
While there is benefit in studying cellular behavior at the single cell level, we focus in this chapter on computer vision analysis of cellular dynamics in large cell populations. In particular, we are interested in data where the cell populations are dense, and there is considerable touching and occlusion among neighboring cells. Figure 21.1 is an example of such image data.
In studying cell populations in time-lapse imaging, manual analysis is not only tedious, the results from different people, and even the results from the same person, can also differ considerably. Moreover, it becomes impractical to manually analyze the behavior of each individual cell in a large population throughout an experiment over an extended time span. Much of the current practice in biomedical study is to manually examine a small subset of the entire cell population, and research conclusions are often drawn based on such manual analysis of a subset of the data. This is suboptimal; it could be misguided when the subset is not representative of the entire cell population. Therefore, automating the process for analyzing each individual cell and its behavior in large populations in time lapse label-free images is not only interesting and challenging computer vision research, it also has the potential of transforming how studies concerning cell population dynamics are done, and what they may discover.
T&M Conceptual Patterns
Modern technologies support new forms for an organization to present its services and products. In addition, they allow an organization to open up new sales and service channels to better support both customers and suppliers.
We need a design concept that encapsulates business logic into units independent of interaction mechanisms or front ends, making them available for different channels, technologies, and workplace types.
This pattern is related to the concepts discussed in the patterns tool design and automaton. For distributed systems it shows how to extract and encapsulate the business functionality of these two elements (see Figure 7.15 ).
We integrate different sales channels and workplace types. We use domain service providers to offer bundled services and allow both users and customers and suppliers to easily handle related products and services.
By our definition, a domain service provider is a domain-specific conceptual unit within a large distributed application system. A domain service provider represents business logic in a way that encapsulates the reproducible and interrelated interactions of an application context with the pertaining materials.
If domain service providers are not oriented to a specific presentation and handling or interface technology, then a number of different sales channels could package the services and present them differently, depending on the customer type and technology. Different service providers could each support various workplace types and other services.
In our bank example, assume that there is a central service provider, AccountManagement . From his or her desktop system, an account manager could request portfolio information for a customer from this service provider. An account manager working in the field, for example, selling a new insurance package offered by the bank, could request account information for the same customer on a laptop application in an ftp (file transfer) session. In addition, this customer uses the AccountManagement service provider in a Web browser over the Internet, for example, to view account statements and make payments from the account.
BACKGROUND: DOMAIN SERVICE PROVIDERS
Modern technologies have had a major impact on how organizations handle their business as they open up different sales channels to reach customers. Many companies offer their products online, and electronic commerce is regaining its pace, especially in the B2B (business to business) sector. A major change can be observed, particularly in the service industry, where companies expand their activities by adding services on demand, call centers, or mobile field services. Currently, many of these service forms are still found in isolation, somewhat blocking integrated services at customer sites, because the underlying applications are primarily linked on a data level rather than over conceptually higher business transactions. For example, many database applications are based on isolated data for accounts, deposits, contracts, and other data pertaining in some way to a customer, but a general concept customer with links to all related entities is missing.
The Internet allows people to compare products and services directly. Potential customers can obtain information about prices and services of different vendors quickly from their homes. The Internet also allows competing vendors, including vendors from different industries, to penetrate the core businesses of organizations. This means that these organizations feel a need to be present in this medium. The reason is the increasing trend that open markets and new technologies dissolve narrow industry boundaries.
The downside is that most currently deployed application systems are too limited to support these new business trends. In addition, many host-based applications have reached the point where they can no longer be maintained or upgraded. While many workplace applications have been replaced by other technologies or implementations, we can see the same happening in an attempt to support new sales channels.
Unfortunately, there are not many integrated applications to support these organizations in their efforts to grab these business opportunities. Domain functionality is developed in many and different ways. If you find some degree of domain-specific integration, it is mostly found on the level of the host database and data-exchange.
Multiple implementations of application logic is the central problem that new technologies must overcome. This problem is further aggravated by a technical problem, because most new applications are implemented as client-server systems. These systems are mostly structured on the basis of the so-called three-layer architecture (see Section 9.3.6 ). This architecture suggests an integration of the functions or applications involved on the data level. In summary, there is a lack of domain-specific integration.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning
Artificial Intelligence, or AI, has already received a lot of buzz in the past decade, but it continues to be one of the new technology trends because of its notable effects on how we live, work and play are only in the early stages. AI is already known for its superiority in image and speech recognition, navigation apps, smartphone personal assistants, ride-sharing apps and so much more.
Free Course: Introduction to AI
Other than that AI will be used further to analyze interactions to determine underlying connections and insights, to help predict demand for services like hospitals enabling authorities to make better decisions about resource utilization, and to detect the changing patterns of customer behaviour by analyzing data in near real-time, driving revenues and enhancing personalized experiences.
The AI market will grow to a $190 billion industry by 2025 with global spending on cognitive and AI systems reaching over $57 billion in 2022. With AI spreading its wings across sectors, new jobs will be created in development, programming, testing, support and maintenance, to name a few. On the other hand AI also offers some of the highest salaries today ranging from over 800,25,000 per year (machine learning engineer) to $145,000 per year (AI architect) – making it the top new technology trend you must watch out for!
Machine Learning the subset of AI, is also being deployed in all kinds of industries, creating a huge demand for skilled professionals. Forrester predicts AI, machine learning, and automation will create 9 percent of new U.S. jobs by 2025, jobs including robot monitoring professionals, data scientists, automation specialists, and content curators, making it another new technology trend you must keep in mind too!
DISADVANTAGES OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY
Social Isolation is on the increase, people are spending more time playing video games, learning how to use new modern technologies, using social networks and they neglect their real life. Technology has replaced our old way of interacting. If a user can easily interact with 100 friends online, they will feel no need to go out to make new friends which at a later stage can lead to loneliness.
Modern technology has replaced many human jobs; robots are doing the jobs which used to be done by humans. Many packing firms have employed robots on production lines to increase production and efficiency, this is good news for businesses because it helps them make more money and serve customers, but it is bad news for employees because they may become redundant.
Increased dependency on modern tools like calculators and spell checkers has reduced our creativity and intelligence. Many today struggle with spelling even basic words without an editor to confirm every word. Others find it impossible to do basic math without a calculator. Though these tools assist to make us more efficient, we may become excessively reliant on them.
Thankfully advances in technology have aided security, however, due to these advances, everything is connected to the internet in some way. Our financial accounts, our photos, our cars, mobile phone, everything touches the internet at some time. Due to the network of worldwide devices and systems, many have fallen prey to an identity thief, hacked accounts by some mischievous hacker. The road to recovery from these types of attacks can be extremely long and painstaking.
World Destruction/Advanced Weapons
Modern technology has been the main aid in the increasing of endless wars. It aids the manufacturing of modern war weapons. So when these weapons get into the hands of criminals, they will use them for their selfish reasons. To add, these weapons often severely damage the natural earth, making some areas uninhabitable.

Technology In Our Life Today And How It Has Changed
Modern technology has paved the way for multi-functional devices like the smartwatch and the smartphone. Computers are increasingly faster, more portable, and higher-powered than ever before. With all of these revolutions, technology has also made our lives easier, faster, better, and more fun.
In this article, we’ll cover how technology has enhanced the quality of life for seniors lives in and out of the home. Technology’s advancements have provided quicker ways to communicate through instant messaging apps and social media platforms. Seniors are able to keep in touch with loved ones, while caregivers have new avenues to check in on aging parents or patients.
Technology has also given us brand new devices in recent decades, like smartwatches, tablets, and voice assistant devices. With these devices, we can do things like transfer money instantly and make purchases for everything from clothes, food delivery, groceries, furniture, and more. Technology has changed how we entertain ourselves, meet each other, and consume all types of media. It’s made fun advancements, but it’s also made important advancements in safety when it comes to home security and medical devices.
Especially for seniors, these devices are providing the freedom to age in place, to live independently, and to continue moving through everyday life with peace of mind. It opens up new opportunities by helping with safety, mobility and connectivity. Medical advancements have made it so you can stay proactive with conditions like diabetes and arthritis. With new medical alert devices, seniors can also get help at the push of a button and keep in touch with loved ones no matter where they are in the world.
Since there are so many new technologies to keep track of, it can seem overwhelming to adapt. However, all of these new technologies are designed to make your life easier. Even though it may not feel intuitive, learning how to use smart phones, smartwatches and voice assistants just takes a little bit of instruction and practice.
Digital technology has changed what people term as “media.” The influence of new technology on media is apparent since a media company isn’t necessarily a news platform anymore. A media company is now any company that helps pass information across the globe, including social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
Before mobile technology, you had to search through a dictionary to understand the meaning of a word. Now you can look words up in a dictionary app or quickly search the Internet. Beyond words, you can search for practically anything on the Internet using search engines like Google and Bing.
There is no denying that the future of technology will continue to revolutionize our lives. In a few years, driverless cars may be the norm for everyone, and robots will be commonplace in factories. Future technology is sure to transform our lives in unbelievable ways, but here we highlight the many common ways technology is changing our lives today.
The problem with technology is that most innovations have unintended consequences, and those unintended consequences are piling up, causing harm and creating dangers of existential magnitude.
The problem with technology is that most innovations have unintended consequences, and those unintended consequences are piling up, causing harm and creating dangers of existential magnitude. We turn a blind eye to those dangers and uncritically presume that, for all but the creepiest technologies (such as animal cloning), the benefits outweigh the risks and that technological innovation is humanity’s highest calling.
Global monoculture rarely sees a technology it doesn’t like. Working off the tacit assumption that technological innovation can and will solve the most critical threats to civilization – the collapsing environment, poverty, tyranny, disease pandemics and resource depletion – we are quick to celebrate unproven technologies and slow, oh so dangerously slow, to critically examine their safety and utility. It’s as though a magical spell has pervaded our groupthink, immersing us in deluded fantasies of meeting human needs with a few swipes of a touchscreen.
If you would like to be the laughingstock of your next dinner party, challenge the cultural presumption in favor of technological progress. Other than a few head nods about how we really should unplug from our hand-held devices for a few minutes a day, you will likely be scoffed at as a backward-thinking loser whose resentment probably lies in your pathetic inability to figure out how to organize your iTunes library.
You might even be called a Luddite, because most people, liberals included, think the Luddites were knee-jerk reactionaries scared of any form of technology when, in fact, they were tradesmen and artisans engaged in a class protest against “all Machinery hurtful to Commonality” (i.e. forms of mechanization that damaged people and uprooted communities by forcing skilled workers to become wage slaves in factories). To be labeled a Luddite today is to be intellectually and culturally dismissed even by class-conscious leftists who have a blind spot when it comes to the politics of technology.
Technology is the practical application of scientific knowledge, the manipulation of elements (fire, water, rock) to create tools, methods and products. Primitive technologies like fire and spears enabled humans to meet their basic needs more easily and, hence, be fruitful and multiply. Modern technologies optimize comfort, convenience and speed, enabling humans to be very fruitful indeed, not only with respect to procreation, but in our astonishing ability to create and share ideas, literature, art and music. Still, it must be said that very rich cultures predate modern technology by centuries, and modern communications technologies may have reached a tipping point where what is authentically created and shared is overshadowed by market-driven, corporate-generated content that is sold or imposed.
Technology has its place. After all, the alphabet and the magnetic compass were innovations in their day, and I feel pretty confident in asserting that literacy and knowing which way is north are, on balance, good things. What we as progressive thinkers must do – because no one else is doing it – is acknowledge the ways in which technology can serve us, understand the ways in which many technologies have harmed us and develop some kind of rubric through which we can evaluate the merits of existing and emerging technologies. Furthermore, we must be mindful of the ways in which technologies can be used by corporate and government actors to repress and control us and question whether the benefits of using the technologies outweigh the risks.
A resilient community is one whose people collectively possess the requisite knowledge and skills to meet their basic needs and are healthy enough in body and spirit to meet challenges and take care of less able members of the community (children, seniors and disabled people). Members of modern societies think themselves very clever though we lack even rudimentary knowledge of the biological and artificial life systems that support us. Lacking much authentic wisdom and knowledge, we tend to take vicarious pride in the inventions of others – I, who cannot so much as spark a flame without a match, feel intelligent by dint of my fellow human’s invention of the combustion engine.
Our deluded pride in our species’ intelligence blinds us to the core deception of technology – that it makes us more resilient. A species that is utterly dependent on the seamless functioning of a fabulously complex global superstructure with millions of impersonal moving parts, none of which most of us have even passing acquaintance with, is not, by any stretch of meaning, resilient. Evaluate your own resilience next time you turn on the faucet – what would you do if nothing came out? Do you even know where your water comes from? Many of us cannot imagine how we would survive without mobile phones much less indoor plumbing.
As techno-literacy expands, eco-literacy contracts.
Consider the sad history of the Arctic Ihalmiut people who are the subject of Farley Mowat’s The People of the Deer. Mowat chronicles the Ihalmiut’s adoption of rifles and subsequent loss of the ability to hunt with bow and arrow as their forerunners had done for millennia. Intermittent access to ammunition (and squandering of shells on fox whose pelts they sporadically sold to white traders) resulted in waves of starvation that reduced their numbers to a handful. The Ihalmiut, understandably seduced by the prospect of an easier means of securing meat, lost their resilience. The same story is now playing out among young Igloolik hunters who use GPS to navigate their ancestral landscape. A recent article in The Atlantic (“The Great Forgetting,” November 2013) reports on the rise of fatal hunting accidents as these hunters get lost or wander blindly onto hazardous terrain.
As techno-literacy expands, eco-literacy contracts. As the saying goes, “We know more and more about less and less.” We know how to create PowerPoint presentations, but don’t know a watershed from a wetland. Worse, the more tech-savvy and eco-ignorant we become, the more we delude ourselves into believing that humans are immune to the laws of nature and can magically replenish our planet’s finite resources. We’re unwilling to take even relatively simple, easy steps that would reduce demand for water, electricity and fuel unless a smart marketing campaign convinces us that we’ll save big bucks. Modern conveniences have not only made us lazy, but have led us to assume that the arc of human betterment is inevitable, and that we are but passive observers of its triumphant mastery over nature.
Our attachment to technology often fosters hubris. And though in many cases it enhances community, it also often fuels our cultural bias toward hyper-individualism by making it all too easy to forego human community and place our bets, instead, on the techno-nanny to care for us. We think that we humans are so smart that each of us can go it alone. It’s a dangerous dynamic in which we acquiesce at our peril.
Ironically, the internet and social media have made possible an unprecedented flow of cross-cultural communication and provide a means for mobility-challenged and geographically or socially isolated folks to connect and learn. Much of the re-skilling that is taking place (learning to garden, mend clothes, preserve food, etc.) is greatly facilitated by the vast electronic information storehouse. But as one homesteading educator ominously warns, “Be sure to print out a hard copy of this material, just in case . . .”
This is fairly self-evident: Machines and fossil fuels enable humans to manufacture far more stuff, far more cheaply than we could ever produce by hand. Our stores are crammed with products that are cheap enough to buy without a second thought. Even online activity consumes more energy than most users realize, because massive data servers require ghastly quantities of electricity.
Centre Pivot in Irrigation
Irrigation has been one of the most effective technological advancements in the agricultural sector. It has yielded amazing results and continues to do so. Irrigational practices are sustainable. It aims at conserving the resources while also providing an adequate amount of water to the crops.
Centre pivot is a type of irrigation technology that has ranked first in providing efficient results. Not to forget, it is more suitable for flat terrain. It is also relatively less costly than other technologies.
Mankind is shown time and again that there is no path leading to success that does not involve the incorporation of modern-day technology. With the advancement of technology, things have become simpler for one and all. When all the other industries are taking up technological intervention for their growth and to overcome challenges, why should the agriculture industry stay behind? We have discussed some nuances of the intervention of technology in the agricultural sector and how it is a booming industry in the present scenario. There are many other small and large interventions of technology in agriculture. Involving it only eases the different processes in the industry.
Recent technological development has occurred at such an incredible rate that it has become a source of controversy. Some people are concerned about the negative impacts that technology has on their lives while others appreciate the comfort they obtain from it. In my opinion, the benefits of these developments could outweigh the drawbacks.
The Importance of Modern Technology in the Workplace
An innovative business on the cutting edge of technology is able to empower its remote workers, reap the cost-savings benefits of BYOD policies, and connect its employees no matter how and where they work. It can provide higher-quality products or services, enhance customer service and the user experience, and reduce waste while improving productivity for higher profit margins. All in all, properly utilizing technology in the workplace creates a competitive advantage.
In an incredibly crowded and competitive business landscape, any chance to get ahead is worth capitalizing on. If you’re not taking advantage of the benefits of technology in your organization, you’re likely already falling behind the competition. It’s important to realize that technology in the workplace has become essential for business success.
A Timeline of Technological Advancements in the Workplace
1960s. Technology wasn’t very present in the workplace. Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM), a computer chip that drastically changed the evolution of computing power, was invented in 1967 but wouldn’t have a serious effect on companies until years later. The way that people communicated was evolving as more households gained access to televisions and phones, but this was still a challenge for companies. Between the lack of communication tools and infrastructure available, organizations were very limited as to where they could do business.
1970s. Even with the introduction of email in 1971, the impact of technology in the workplace remained stagnant as most large corporations were too focused on revenue to bother trying new tools. However, this decade saw booming technology innovation with inventions such as the daisy-wheel printer, floppy disk, and the first ever video game, Pong. The biggest invention of all arrived in 1973 when Ethernet (which is now the most widely used local area networking (LAN) technology in the world) was invented by Xerox.
1980s. With the rise of tech-giant companies like IBM, Microsoft, Apple, and AT&T, technology in the workplace finally started to gain some traction. The laptop was invented in 1981, and the world’s first cell phone, the Motorola DynaTAC 800x, was launched in 1983. With these new communication tools, organizations were finally able to expand where they could do business beyond their geographic location.
1990s. With the introduction of the World Wide Web in 1989, technology was essentially everywhere by the time the 90’s rolled around. Companies could now use the web to show off their products and services and stay connected with their customers. They could also find and communicate with other suppliers, manufacturers, and distributors that they wouldn’t have been able to previously due to geographic limitations. This became even easier once Google was invented in 1998.
2000s. Google was now used daily by businesses and consumers alike across the globe. Devices such as the Apple iPod and iPhone were created, and social media sites like Myspace and Facebook began to pop up. These innovations started the wave of being able to access everyone and everything online. Consumers were now able to find and contact businesses who offered solutions to their problems, even if they weren’t located close by. At the same time, businesses were now able to do research on their customers to market to them more effectively and create products aligned with their deeper needs.
2010s. We’re all caught up! Welcome to modern times, where technology has become fully integrated into nearly every aspect of both consumers’ lives and businesses’ operations. Workplace trends and business best practices are constantly changing as new technologies are evolving at a rapid pace.
Access and Exchange of Information
Since the mid 1990s, the modern technology has had a revolutionary hit on culture and commerce, including electronic emails, blogs, shopping site, chatting video and social nerwork,etc. People all the world have witnessed such a rapid access and exchange of information. The further the technology reaches, the more doubtful people are about a danger to our society. This development has both pros and cons, which is still arguable.
I’m convinced that the convenience of modern technology is such a clear thing. Every class of people uses the Internet in his own way. Students use the Internet for researching and making friends, businessmen use it for doing business and relaxing, housewives use it for shopping online, travelers use it for booking rooms and taking map, others use it for updating new information and doing transaction online. It cannot be imagined how the world would be without Internet. Just with a mobile phone, a laptop or a desk computer connected with the Internet, we can access the world without stepping out of home.
Looking at the other side of the argument, modern technology is considered to become harmful to our society. As far as I know, the Internet brings a big amount of data at a very high speed, therefore, it is impossible to control the spread of information and the receiving entity. All kinds of information are updated all time no matter source of information and its truthfulness. Even an innocent child can access information easily, which can affect his behavior. What will happen if wrong data is organized for a wrong purpose, leading to an increase in in misunderstanding which may effect behavior, a decision or an outcome? Consequently, a big danger may happen to our society.
From personal experience, I‘m in favor of what benefits new technology brings to us. It is advisable to use modern technology smartly enough to exploit the Internet benefits . Also, we’d better not allow children to use the Internet without supervision of their parents. It’s a good idea to absorb what to be read and heard efficiently and quickly. Anyway, it’s important to learn how to balance our life, spend more time staying out and meeting people instead of staying online all the time.
In conclusion, everything is two-sided, not only new technology. Obviously, we cannot deny the benefits that new technology brings to the world. If someone asks me whether it becomes a danger or not, I think the outcome is upon the way it is used. Last but not late, if I were you, I would use new technology smartly enough.
Comments for Access and Exchange of Information
Quality of Life
Over the last two decades, people have witnessed some tremendous improvements in the area of information technology. While this change has led our work and life more convenient than before, I believe it also brings us several negative impacts.
It is true that recent technology developments have made our life become more convenient. This is because people can use their mobile phone to perform multi tasks, which cannot be imagined in the past. For example, having a smart phone these days allow users to check emails, pay bills and conduct a video conference through internet at anytime and anywhere. Therefore, it certainly makes individuals become more productive as they do not need to physically attend to complete these tasks.
Nevertheless, these technologies also create problems to people’s life. The major one is that it reduces the level of individual’s wellbeing. Thanks to the modern technology, adults are less active as jobs have shifted towards sedentary office work instead of manual labour. If they are getting used to this sedentary lifestyle, it is more likely for them to enjoy sedentary activities rather than outdoor activities. Consequently, they may suffer some chronic diseases at early age.
Anotrher dire effect of developments in technology is lack of family bonding. This is because people’s behavior has been changed by modern technology. For example, in recent years the younger generation tends to enjoy their time on their online life such as checking facebook rather than interact with their families at their free time. If they expose to this situation for long time, they may only live in their own virtual world. As a result, it will not only decrease their communication skills, but also limit their social opportunities with people from outside.
Increase in destruction from equipment in wars or fights
if people increase the number or force in equipmnet such as bombs and guns, they would eb able to destroy whole city in a few seconds instead of now when you actually have to drop about 6 bombs to destroy part of a city
We have the bombs that can clear multiple cities with one bomb. We have rocket launchers capable of blowing up buildings from the inside out. We have grenade launchers holding several grenades. We could take down multiple cities within a few seconds and use about 6 bombs to destroy a small country right now.
Thats the scary truth. However, technology may be able to bring upon some kind of defense to bombs and explosions to protect cities. How? Personally i’m not sure, but thats what technology is for, to create things that we don’t know and thats what make it so amazing
Is Technology Bad for you?
63% of people prefer to use the computer or other technology instead of reading or staying warm. A problem that can occur from spending too much time on a computer is that there is a high chance for damaging the eyes.A reason that kids, teenagers, and adults should not be on the computer, phone, iPad, or other technology is that it could take away from homework, work, or chores.
Baseball or football could lead to getting hit by the ball or tackled causing broken bones, bloody noses, bruises ect. Checkers and chess could take away from homework, work or chores. These things are not really “Technology” yes could have the same or worse results. No chess and checkers are not really the “in thing” at the moment, but my point is is that without said technology there would just be something else to distract our minds
Technology is not much important.. In earlier time. Life was also there. Technology make our life lazy not easy.
U can see properly. What kind of impact are reflecting on our health. Because of what. Because of science technology. We should concern about birds. They die day by day..
Life is not to living.. It’s just like complete ur days on earth..
Technology has been advancing for the better of humanity for years now, most of what we’ve created out of this has been really good. Although behind the scene how do we know as technology advances, it’s not also advancing for the bad, bad people with power and money being extremely capable of using this technology to their own advantage, eventually technology is going to reach a point where the human mind will easily be manipulated, you’ll be influenced, etc. We only see what were aloud to see. 0_0
modern day technology such as phones, computers and medical technology is great and can even save life’s but have we sat back and thought of all the bad thing like eye damage, bullying and not to mention the addictive habits, technology can save lives but it can also destroy them
I do love this technology but was born in 1958 so didn’t grow up with it. I think it’s bad when kids don’t do much else and social media means they are in danger of bullies or grooming by older women or men pretending to be the same age. We need to educate everyone specially young children teenagers and parents of those age groups. Keeping a eye without being invasive or overly protective must be hard. There are so many good points too it though. We better get used to it and any potential dangers as its not going anywhere. Lol. Be strict with time limits and if necessary check browsing history and be aware of what social media sites they are on. There are parental controls too.
Homework shouldn’t be copied from websites. They should just look and then write their own way.
