People who always use search engines can become very good at finding information, but not remembering it. In addition, children who use too much technology may not have enough opportunities to read, use their imagination, and think deeply about material. Also, technology can contribute to the risk of obesity, the more technology we use the less exercise we
Supported in the metastudy by Medical News Today, children are easily affected and include “low academic performance” as well as “delays in social and emotional development”(Legg). The frequent use of technology is constantly altering children's development and ability to grow more naturally. Using media, online entertainment, and search engines poses a threat to stunting adolescent brain growth.

One reason that schools should not be participate in “Shut Down Your Screen Week” is because kids can learn using technology and the Internet. In this article, “Many interactive games encourage strategic and critical thinking, which helps kids grow intellectually” (Leigh Gossel). This means that, though most people say that that technology ‘dumbs down people’ and though there is perhaps some truth to that, letting technology ‘dumb down people’ should not happen unless we allow it to and technology can actually help kids learn. Also from the article before, “Between calculators, word processing, spreadsheets, slideshows, search engines, online dictionaries, thesauruses,
Behavioral changes from one generation to the next naturally occur little by little. Nonetheless, changes in adolescent behavior from the millennial generation triumphing it have been substantial and revolutionary. Today’s teens have never witnessed a world without internet. The majority of them possess smartphones and waste several hours each week on social media. But while numerous parents may feel allayed about their teens’ seeming uninterested in drinking, driving and dating, they could perhaps be overlooking the effects that continuous internet access has on their teens’ mental well-being.

Too much screen use induces less communication between people and more time spent using technology. Technology used in our society in the same way. Sometimes people use television to forget about a hard time at work, others using phones in public, so they don’t have to interact with other people. “Little by little, technology has become an integral part of the way that people communicate with one another and has increasingly taken the place of face-to-face communication. Due to the rapid expansion of technology, many individuals fear that people may be too immersed in this digital world and not present enough in the real world,”.
In 1988, the Internet was opened to the public. At that time, not many people were aware of what a huge impact the Internet would have on the lives of future generations and cultures. While it was at first widely accepted by many users because of its astonishingly convenient and unlimited access to information, the enthusiasm for the Internet has more recently diminished and even disappeared in some cases. Many people no longer view the Internet as a helpful tool, but more as a harmful weapon, attacking every area of our lives, including education, communication, literacy, attention span, memory, intelligence, relationships, politics, economics, even sleep, diet, and physical activity. The Internet is ultimately affecting and determining the
Sue Honoré, an independent learning consultant who has studied people who were born from 1982 to 2002 has that “while young people are "undoubtedly capable of long periods of concentration", those who spend a lot of time alone using technology tend to have less in the way of communication skills, self-awareness and emotional intelligence”. It has been proven that around 31 nations that students who used computers everyday in class had lower test scores in reading and math than students who don’t use them as much (Study: Students Who Use in School Doesn’t Help Test Scores). Though technology is amazing and has given so many people different opportunities they would’ve never had before it is resulting in a few bad habits for students. Casey Schools systems around the United States have begun to rely on technology to teach their students instead of teachers to teach them. According Michael Godsey, a veteran high-school English educator, even said and agreed with many people today that we are at the point in time where since we have the internet at our fingertips, there is really no need for teachers

Task 2 2B Digital technology ¬– a health threat? We live in a rapidly changing, highly technological world, where the present day digital technology affects several parts of our lives. At work, people use digital technology to communicate, gather information and solve problems relevant to their place of work. A growing number of people also use digital technology at home, to keep in touch with friends and family, check bank balances, play interactive games, participate in online forums and interact with others on social media websites and mobile apps, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
According to Susan Scutti, author of a CNN article “Phones are directly linked to worse sleep quality at night” (Scutti). Likewise this applies to teens because of all of the time they spend on their devices. That piece of information shows another health risk and why it is important. If students do not get enough sleep they will not do there best in school and secure a good future. The final health risk that phones pose to students is eye damage.
Technology and new innovations are welcome in the society of the twenty-first century. Technology is advancing every year, and it is being integrated into everyone’s daily life. Technology like smartphones, computers, smartwatches, smart glasses, smart tv’s, and game consoles are being incorporated into people’s homes, jobs, education, transportation, and medicine.
