But nowadays, technology is a significant factor in today’s society. Technology is rapidly growing and is becoming more involved in our lives. It has become so highly involved that now it is part of children’s lives. Cris Rowan stated that “Children now rely on technology for the majority of their play.” Children are no longer wanting to go outside or play with their toys anymore. The importance of these activities is to improve their creativity and imagination, which creates their ability to problem solve in the future.
Nowadays, social media is being a part of our life. Social media has positive and negative sides. People use social media for helping their life like in business, communication, and education. Because, today is a globalization period which means everything is by technology. Technology here means social media.
I 'm sure that there will be more companies willing to allow other students to step out of the shadows and show them what they can do. Some of those same students may even start their own little company and begin to grow. One little smart phone app did all this. It is basically the pioneer of this newly creative foundation. This proves that the little things can cause a great deal of change that is needed for this country to advance in today 's age.
Mobile devices are frequently used by parents as educational tools for their children to learn from the applications in the devices. However, there is a need to implement control on the frequency and method of usage to achieve a right balance in tapping the positive effects from such devices. The following contents will be looked into in my research study entitled
They are provided with electronics at an early age which acts as a stepping stone in their human growth and development. Expose to such facilities from the age of four or five creates physical and psychological health issues later in their life, which stays forever. Children are very young to understand the difference between good and bad, healthy and unhealthy, they learn from their surroundings, from what or whom they encounter everyday in their lives. Firstly, parents are the one closest to them and the ones who provides them with such facilities out of love and affection. Secondly, teachers on the other hand prepare them for the future.
As the World progresses, technology has always been a part of it, if not ahead. I for one, have grown up in a time where the use of technology has been intertwined in the society. Since technological advancements began a while ago, the newer generation of children has access to it with ease than those who came before them. This then does arise some concerns about the effect of technology on younger generations. Just like with other controversial topics, there are some negative sides to technology as well as positive sides.
With her iPod experiment, underway they were “crowdsourcing educational innovation for a digital age for [their] incoming students,” (Davidson 51) which in the end led to many innovative uses for the iPods. This was not even seen as anything close to an educational device. This view of allowing people to work together and to work on a common goal allowed for more ideas to be heard when everyone was working towards the same achievement. This allows for people who look at the world in a creative sense. To succeed because more creative ideas would be shot down when being pitched by one person.
Today there are many different devices to use and within seconds today’s generation can figure out how to work the devices. As Mizuko says, “Teens then share their creations and receive feedback from others online. By its immediacy and breadth of information, the digital world lowers barriers to self-directed learning” (Source C). Today’s generation taking good advantage of the advanced technology. As a result, they have the opportunity to seek assist from people across the internet and start to network.
However, children’s identity is still developing; they are unable to determine who they really were (Anderson & Gentile, 2007). Additional 1 paragraph Technology and Social Development Technologies effect on children may have an impact on their social development. However, a research stated that “Technological advances will inevitably change society but, in tandem, social factors shape and influence the research, development, commercialization and uses of technology” (Cliff, et.al, 2008). Their analysis then suggests that change in society is natural when there are advances in technology. Children’s focus at this stage of development is running around, playing and interacting with other people.
The current study is the effects of exposure to technology on young children. As we become increasingly more reliant and absorbed in technology, it is no surprise that today’s children have become avid users as well (Hatch, 2011). Children at the age of three or four already have tablets, smart phones, and others; they could easily attain technologies and would even demand for one. As it makes easier for us, technology has both positive and negative impacts especially on young children. It comes with great opportunities but these opportunities likewise come with great risk and can be viewed as threats.
