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
Imagine a world today where people didn’t have the technologies. If there were no technologies today, humans wouldn’t have phones, computers, tablets, Instagram, Twitter, or Snapchat. Technology is now a big part of people’s society and predictable future. Electronic devices like cars, phones, tablets, and computers have all been created over time to make peoples live helpful and easier. The benefits of technology are that people can talk to their friends and relatives who are living far from them, they can learn new things and online courses, and they’re able to reach distant places within hours, which took years of time to reach in olden days.
Also there are social impacts of the digital divide. In the UK, there are some who cannot afford new equipment; therefore they cannot keep up with the increasing speed of development. Although it could be argued that this is not an issue in the UK, most people have enough money for quite a high standard of living so connecting up is usually a matter of personal priorities. The educational impact is that in the UK, there is a lot of Government-provided IT access at school. Every school is expected to teach ICT and all UK schools are connected to the internet.
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.
The internet allows teams of professional anywhere in the world to collaborate on any project at the same time. Also computers can do repetitive tasks faster with fewer errors than humans. Business doesn't occur eye to eye as regularly as in the past. Instead, today's communication depends upon phone calls and messages chains that make it testing to become more acquainted with your accomplices. It's been a typical mourn among business people disappointed with the innovation that has turned into the standard in their everyday lives (Burg, 2013).
If we don’t need people in our lives, we can shut doors (not literally though). Disappearing from social media platforms and making the minimum use of our smart phones can easily take us far from the rest of the world. However, when it comes at the professional front, being a loner could be tough, but not impossible to deal with. Many employers nowadays, look for candidates who can add value to an existing ‘team.’ Being an effective and promising contributor to teams, have become an essential hiring credentials. Amongst the multitude of career options we come across each day, hardly do we find openings that require ‘less interactive’ candidates.
I think that technology and the internet can and have brought people together. The reason that i say that is because if you are homeschooled, than you can stay connected with your old friends. But if you get cut off from the internet and stuff, and you canot get to talk to anyone at all, than you will be lonely and not have anyone to talk to. The internet has helped to get people help fast. It helps people who want to learn new things, and it helps people who want to share what they have learned.
Albert Einstein once said, “The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think.” This statement applies today more than ever. In a society where technology is rapidly expanding, it is almost impossible to do well in life by relying solely on the facts you learned in school. People must continue learning and figuring things out by themselves while having to deal with new technological advancements coming out all the time. In today's society, a college education is necessary in order to secure a good paying job. Although college is costly and has some amount of risk, a college education is ultimately worth it.
Although phones and technology have brought numerous useful tools to the world, they brought distractions and faults with the easy accessibility. “Technology gives children the ability to learn in ways their parents and grandparents never had. Today’s learners have immediate access to answers and research. Yet, that immediate access is changing the way students think about work and how they feel emotionally,” ("The Pros and Cons of Technology") It is not that technology is unimportant and should be destroyed completely, but there is a line people are crossing. It distracts people from doing their jobs, learning, staying healthy, and other things they should be doing with their
Today we have a different workforce than what it used to be earlier. To keep up with the workforce today you must make friends with technology as the traditional style of work is not present anymore. You can see this change all over the world. Different companies are using different techniques to make their work smarter but all is attached with technology and we all know that Plantronics is one of the best in technology. The products and headphones are so amazing that many people assume it as the biggest breakthrough industry in making
