Ever since our world undergoing development, technology has enabled people to accomplish countless tasks easily without wasting much energy and time. It also means that nowadays, the growth of social networking sites and mobile technologies have forever changed the landscape of human interaction. People are debating whether or not technology is good for us since we are certainly sure that the use of technology will be increased. Some people believe technology indeed brings a lot of benefits to people and some think completely opposites. However, for me, I strongly believe that technology can bring both advantages and damages to people and their relationship.
Digital world means connected by the help of digital devices, media or we can say digital marketing services that are available to everyone at any time. It is the world full of ideas, opinions, learning and opportunities. Only because of the Internet has made it possible for all of us to connect whenever we consider it necessary. There are many methods in which we take the benefit of the digital world, because of the digital world people run worldwide online business, it has enhanced communication. Technology has also enhanced teaching and learning.
Nowadays, most people are affected by globalization. Every single day we are using globalization in the term of connection that makes us more comfortable and closely connected. Some people might not know what globalization means. Globalization is a modern concept referring to the improvement of certain elements to make possible interconnected among countries most significantly in the areas of global economic, technology, free trade markets and multinational operation. And no matter where we are at, we were able to get the news of information quickly and widely because of the development of information technology (IT).
Technology is literally taking over the world right before our eyes. Today, everything we do is dependent on technology. Weather it’d be going to school, taking the train, typing a paper, and or turning in your work onto a website such as D2L or Turnitin.com. Technology will grow every single day and one day take over our world. As an IT major, there are new things constantly being invented by people that make our lives easier.
In the introduction of the virtual lab, it initiates a speciality that is far more convenient compared to real laboratory, it accessibility. For recent cases, people had to get to the real lab for any experiments, either for operation of the experiments or any other business relative to the experiments, regardless of how far and how inconvenience is for the person to travel. However, with the invention of virtual laboratory, these issues are no more a problem. Virtual laboratories’ accessibility, namely Open and Distance Learning (ODL) is a new way of education and learning method for every learner. This is all thanks to the rapid development of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), lectures, tutorials and laboratories were unnecessary to be delivered in conventional way anymore.
It has become a staple to modern day living as it does makes things easier. A press of a button or tap of a screen can have limitless possibilities, able to connect people thousands of miles apart. Looking at it like this, coupled with its incessant growth within the society, many people crave it. A power limited only by imagination and ingenuity in the palm of one’s hand is exciting. A device that is able to extend the people’s reaches since their own capabilities are limited.
People dependent on technology Nowadays, people live happily in their real life because they depend on technology to do their activities. Additionally, our lives become much better with technology so people seem to be feeling comfortable to communicate by using their mobile phones and e-mails to keep track of the news. Our routines have been changed because of the new inventions which are created to make life easier for us. Because of the new inventions of technology, people are fascinated of what the future will be and how their life became modern. Addition, it furnishes a comfortable touch of ease and all the things that people need to become available in front of eyes.
These new tools have become extensions of our senses, sort of like a necessity we cannot live without, and "everything people produce is made with the aid of these tools" (Simon 87). The arrival of this new age has really been a turning point for everyone as the new tools made life easier and more convenient for people. Things were done at a much faster pace, and machines and new technologies were available to almost everyone. Albeit the ongoing list of advantages of these tools, there are still disadvantages. It is said that people must take advantage of the technology there is now, but what if they take advantage of it too much?
The roles of technologies broaden almost every aspect in our life such as lifestyle, education, knowledge and many more. We have been using technology so much these days in each and every domain of our lives, be it education or the regular household work, that have we ever taken out a second to wonder if it’s leaving a positive impact on our work or it’s just that we have been relying too much on it that we’ve become habitual to it, ignoring the direction of its impact? Technology comes in handy especially when it comes to promoting scientific literacy among students, educators or scientist. With the development of information and communication technology (ICT) rapidly growing, using computer technology in teaching science has become common. The most used technology nowadays is computer and internet.
Technology has been so important in our lives that we must have it everywhere and anytime because many different technologies were invented to make our lives easier and more comfortable, without which we would feel alienated from the rest of the world. It is undeniable that people have been very reliant on technology in every aspect of life but how has this affected creativity and communication among us? Technology has improved our communication in many ways as it has broken barriers of distance between humans around the world. For instance, mobile phones and social networking sites have made us closer to each other as we can instantly contact one another. Back in the old days, humans use different ways to contact each other, such as writing letters.
