In this digital era, reading has evolved in such a way that people no longer need physical books to gain information on certain subjects. In fact, numerous ways exist through which anybody can access information on their favorite topics in a click of a button. Additionally, the use of Internet provides a platform where individuals can share their thoughts with others on different topics and gain more knowledge from the thoughts and advice of others. Online reading often provides fresh new insights into language and how it is used on a daily basis. For some, reading online is the leading cause of failure among students in schools.
The digital revolution has made everything more convenient for the children of today's society. However, kids now are spending the time they could be reading on the internet, which has done almost everything except help their minds to grow in the way that minds did in the past. Naturally, if our literacy rates do not increase, we will end up in a similar literacy issue as Mexico is in now. This is explained in his article, “The Country That Stopped Reading,” the author, David Toscana, claims that the value of reading is so much more than Mexico makes it out to be. Mexico is crumbling due to the fact that the majority of the country is illiterate.
Some people prefer that social media have some good effects for children, while others believe that social media only can harm children. In the ultimate analysis. Actually, on balance analysis, I agree that social media causes bad effects for teenager because social media take up a lot of time for children to study, and have a bad influence on the development of their body and mind health. Parents wonder if their children’s constant use of Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat is healthy. Teenagers talk about the pressure to post the perfect photo or to compete with the perfect lives their friends present on the Internet.
For instance, “Huck Finn encompasses a grand amount of knowledge that is vastly beneficial to students”(Harris 8). This quote is expressing the thought that those who read gain more knowledge. When banning amazing classic books like “Huck Finn” for kids they then do not get the great beneficial knowledge that books like “Huck Finn” contain. Banning classic books exterminates kids from having a vast imagination and learning great and valuable life
It has come very clear to me that our generation that is very accustomed to using the internet are maybe just a little lazier than the generation who did not have computers and other technologies. For instance, I myself find it much easier to go search something I do not know rather than looking it up in a book, because it is much quicker and simpler. If it was not for the internet some discoveries would have never been found, some people would not have made billions and some may even learn to read out of book without getting
Cursive Handwriting Should cursive writing be put back into schools? Living in America today on a day to day basis, students living in this era don’t know how to read or write in cursive handwriting. Many people today don’t even know that cursive handwriting has been taken out of public schools for years now. “Today people use the keyboard as a better way of writing” (Hotz,Robert L). We need to take matters into our own hands and put cursive writing back into public schools before the rest of our world becomes a total wreck.
Since the advent of the personal computer, the amount of information and interconnectedness between people has dramatically increased. With one click of a button someone could go from checking the scores of their favorite football team to conversing with a friend anywhere in the world. In “Is Google Making Us Stupid” by Nicholas Carr, he explores the consequences of the massive amounts of information one can obtain via the internet. While I agree with Carr on the effects the internet has on how people read, there is a limit to the amount of people the internet actually affects. Throughout his paper Carr continually provides evidence that supports his claim that the amount of information that the internet provides is changing the way people
Although the internet is a very popular and powerful tool, extreme care by parents must be exercised when allowing their children to go online. In the following report, I intend to highlight some of these issues, highlight some of the benefits and come up with some possible solutions. Some children spend twice as long on the internet as their parents are aware of and start going online at a very young age, a study has found. Many children are looking at websites and videos that contain animal cruelty, pornography, and self-harm. As much as twenty-five percent admit to pretending to be older to
Most of time children sneak phones because they might not know the answers to the work. In my opinion, I believe that students need to be allowed to have phones during school because some students lack common knowledge and if that specific student could download an online tutor, they could learn new ways to improve their lack of knowledge. So, phones can make a huge growth in children academic
There are a lot of things kids do on the internet other than inappropriate things. He reconciled that according to the M.C Author foundation, kids who go on the internet “gravitated to topics related to sports, religion, school and other local activities in their lives.” (Going online is actually good.) They don’t go on the internet only to meet potentials love interest. He continues his reason with why the internet isn’t such a corrupt place, by bashing stereotype, which said kids waste their time on the internet. In wrote that when the professor at the M.C Author foundation interview kids, they realize that kids were finding “new ways to express themselves and pioneering new rules of social behavior through blogging, movie making and
