Internet can be accessed anywhere and now because of technology like wifi,laptops,tablets, and cellphones students can access information anywhere. Elizabeth Marcoux article called,”Student Cheating with Technology” she talks about how students have changed and so has the world and the access to and use of information across the world. Technology has also had many effects on students education. Technology has affected students education and work environment. In Marcoux writing she informs us that the effects of students with global writing of the world is pervasive.
And this era of globalization, many people access the internet to find information including children. Therefore it is necessary for the supervision of parents when children access the internet and play social media. It is also important that education in telling children about the danger of excessive use of the Internet or social media. The role of parents and the environment around us really affect how the mindset of children in this digitalization
Even though social media sites provide a means to socialize, they can expose teenagers to the more hateful aspects of technology, such as online predators and cyberbullying. According to “Parents Need to be Clued in on Teens”, “the more time adolescents spend online the more susceptible they are to be cyberbullied”. As soon as children go online, parents, schools, and communities that they need to teach their kids about being safe online. Most bullying happens with kids who know who your kids are, so parents need to check on their kids often and be completely open. Finally, cyberbullying can lead to horrible problems that are not to be tolerated on any social media
The counter-argument that people have towards my topic is “Access to the Internet is changing the way children think and live”. People that work for CNN has an article that relates to why childrens are changing the way they think and live because of the internet, like in a paragraph it states “The explosive growth of social media, smart phones, and digital devices is transforming our kids lifes, in school and at home.” Since children have access to the internet now in days and are exploring/browsing, they could be changing themselves but not all children use it for the same thing.

They say that people are able to communicate with others from places where they are not able to reach and one can search up any topic they wish to find in seconds. Sure, these may be very sound reasons, but remember, the internet itself is an infinite wave of information; and if a person’s curiosity got the best of them, they could very well get swallowed in it and that could cause them to keep wanting to look for more. They could even be looking for stuff that might get them into trouble and parents wouldn’t even know they were doing something like that because they hid that from their parents. People can get scandled, blackmailed, and information can get phished nowadays because they are not checking background information on the websites that are potentially dangerous or the people that created fake accounts on that
As the ability to have personal computers at home became more accessible and popular, cyber criminals began to focus their efforts on home users. The most common cyber crimes during this time were phishing scams, cyber stalking, computer viruses, and identity theft. As the years went on and more and more households bought home computers with Internet access ,cyber crime became bigger and much harder to control. Cyber stalking and harassment also became farmore popular. Middle school and high school kids began to take advantage of the Internet to taunt their classmates and adults would stalk and harass those they also stalked in real life via the internet.
It is warranted for parents to be concerned about the influences on the sexual activity of their children. As there is a plethora of sexual content on the internet, many containing inaccurate information or blurred lines of consent, children are using the internet and porn to self-educate. The sexual content consumed via the internet and current social movements in the media, creates a necessity for children to be taught with age and evidence-based information that covers many aspects of sexual health including anatomy, physiology, abstinence, consent, early bystander education, the ways that sex is represented in the world around them, and how they can contribute what they’ve learned to the world and their own sexual health. It is the responsibility
New digital technologies have transformed lives of man in manifold ways. The barriers of communication have been traversed through latest media and information technologies. Now people can communicate with others far across the borders through internet, watch the news and information about foreign lands and get involved in debates that were never possible before. Identities of individuals, social institutions and international relations have been affected by these new inventions. These individual identities may be fictitious and may not be available to everyone but they have impacted the society as a whole.
Facebook, YouTube and Twitter have become a platform for violence; it would seem as if gang members help promote such behaviour. Schools are a microcosm of society, so if some students are parts of gangs outside of schools, eventually gangs and violent behaviour will be in our schools as well. Moreover, media programs that shows on the television that involves violent behaviour adds to the increase of such behaviours at schools, the music of today’s world add a bit of spice to the lives of rebels in our schools as well. Bullying has increased terrifically in school violence especially with the advancement of social medias and
Besides the fast pace of modern life, the development of interactive media adds new complexity to today’s parenting. Parents understand computer literacy is important to help their children prepare for science and technology and the computer literacy may come from online activities such as playing games (Subrahmanyam et al., 2002).
