The Impact of Technology to Young Generation

By cachifox ·
Computer was created and designed to help the people in easy way of living. Now a day the world has comprises almost 80% of computer users and literate. The new generations today have been well oriented in technologies.

Every educational institute both private and public integrate computer as part of the learning process in any course and any level of education that aims to participate a so-called ?Globalization?. Religious group have their own online pages to spearheads the message of God which is against the prophesy.

IT, Computer Engineers, Computer Programmers do their best efforts, integrating strategy and methods to manipulates and systematize the codes in the development of the programs as well as participating themselves to compete in computerized world.

We could not deny however, the facts that there are advantages and disadvantages embodied in Technology in general. Let me emphasize one (1) ?The Internet? which is part of the technology and where, its deliver information through out the world but there are such uncontrolled issue as Fraud, Gambling, Pornographic or Cyber-sex this are just among many illegal activities happened in Internet.

What are the advantages, it can help people on there research, we can communicate our relatives in other area of the world in replacement with other communication facilities, we can use to express ourselves freely, the companies increase there sales through online shopping, we can select professional and skilled worker, we can share our ideas through discussion, we can get a degree through distance education and we can even look for a job, in general Internet is very informative, in which it is the major objective of its existence.

Please don?t misinterpret my statements as I am just trying to focus and elaborate the situation of Internet as a major issue of why our society today become the open world down to the young generation to the extend that they can even see and learn the enigmatic and sarcasm form of behavior.

I have no any objection in Internet, however our major concern here was the young generation, the children which affect to their day to day?s life style and characteristic whom some are suppose to be inside the classroom yet they are in caf??s chatting, online gaming, some are doing research but at the end they?re watching pornography and others are in Arcade, ?this is Technology?. This thing have been known and seen by older, educator, parents and government as well, but yet still neglected or we can say also unseen.

The very point of the question is who should be the one to blame? We or Technology?.

The problem I see socially

by TonytheTiger In reply to The Impact of Technology ...

is one of experience. Reading and arguing the experiences of others is no substitute for being in the real world and experiencing for yourself.

Perhaps a lame example, but it's like watching someone put vinyl siding on a house on one of those home-improvement shows and thinking "That doesn't look so hard." and then actually going out and doing it yourself :)

I suspect that many of the youth of today are in for a rude awakening, entering the world grossly underestimating the amount of work involved in making it run smoothly.

And that's our fault.... by making it too easy on our children now, they will not be prepared later.

And it's us, the parents, who are responsible.

I feel that, even though we are computer users of various levels, we are responsible for using the Internet and technology wisely and not abuse it.
