Technology Affects Brain Stimulation For Children Technology should not be used by children because they are being distracted from society. Also, different types of technology can impact their health and emotions. Everyone’s families are different, and not everyone will be able to afford the newest technology. Children want to touch and feel lots of things, many children would like to own ipods and smartphones to communicate with others. Furthermore, Technology makes children become obese such as watching tv and sitting down for long amount of times.
The reports and viewpoints on technology’s effects vary drastically. Therefore, the ultimate question is, what is the effect of technology on humanity? In order to answer this ultimate question, I read two articles: “Is the Onslaught Making us Crazy?” by Tony Dokoupil and “Don’t Fear the Digital” by Steven Johnson. In Dokoupil’s article, he discusses how the use of technology causes individuals to develop numerous psychological issues or disorders and that usage of technology can change brain structure. Also, he notes that technology changes how people interact socially, behave, think, and feel due to its addictive qualities.
The current study is the effects of exposure to technology on young children. As we become increasingly more reliant and absorbed in technology, it is no surprise that today’s children have become avid users as well (Hatch, 2011). Children at the age of three or four already have tablets, smart phones, and others; they could easily attain technologies and would even demand for one. As it makes easier for us, technology has both positive and negative impacts especially on young children. It comes with great opportunities but these opportunities likewise come with great risk and can be viewed as threats.
Based on the children’s usage of technology every day, it has been proven that their communication is being decreased leading to being distant, avoiding or even regretting the presence of their parents. Moreover, as technology has ruined the relationships in families by affecting communication, it’s also negatively effective with personalities. The more often people use technology, the more their personalities become disrespectful and rude towards their surroundings to a point where it is extreme and excessive. Peter looked at his shoes. “He never looked at his father any more, nor at his mother.
Technology is an important mode of communication for many children, however, it can affect child development. Many children are influenced by technology such as media, internet, movies, etc. Now many children rely on technology and seen technology advance them, but technology does have harmful effects on them. They are using technology devices every day, and they are beginning to lose interest themselves from family or friends from their communication skills. Also, their behaviors begin to change by technology, and they start having mental health problems.
Therefore, technology allows them to prevent wasting their valuable time by helping them find and search for whatever they want, as well as by delivering them results that are straightforward and to the point. Many critics may argue and say that technology in education is dangerous. It can waste a students’ time by getting him or her sidetracked by distractions they find online. However when students avoid technology in education, they have to spend long hours, days, maybe even weeks searching for certain information in various different books. Students that really want to learn will force discipline upon themselves.
Many people can agree that the introduction of technology into society has impacted humans a lot. Kids are using cell phones, computers are used in schools. Technology is everywhere in people’s lives. But the true question is whether or not technology is ruining people. Starting from the fact that kids are getting less and less physical activity due to technology, technology also ruins social skills in people, and the fact that technology is very dangerous, technology is ruining people.
But, it also changed daily lives and technology affects the memories towards short-term and long-terms. There has been a negative effect that teenager’s brain goes through and it does not let them think creatively and miss their brains up. Technology can go into positive and negative effect, but one thing that teenagers and parents cannot do is to stop using it for a long time. They get obsessed with it and you cannot get rid of these devices. Technology negatively affects brain development in children because usage affects their learning, and therefore technology use should be
Is the use of technology in the classroom useful or harmful? “We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.” - David Warlick. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace in the 21st century, and ipads, laptops and smartphones are used in many aspects of our everyday lives. This modern technology is also becoming a part of learning in the classroom. The question whether the use of technology in the classroom is more harmful or useful is debatable, but the benefits far outweigh the harm.
One being, that technology should only be used as a tool for learning and to strengthen relationships among parents, families, early educators and young children. In the article it states, “The thoughtful use of technology by parents and early educators can engage youths in key skills such as play, self-expression, and computational thinking which will support later success across all academic disciplines and help maintain young people’s natural curiosity” (Guiding Principles for Use of Technology with Early Learners). With technologies ability of enhancing academic
