Defines the word technology as “the branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society and the environment. In the minute it took me to open up the internet, google dictionary, be given the link for dictionary. com and search “technology”, it has saved me looking at numerous amounts of “te” words. Some may call it lacy but I’d prefer to call it more convenient and that really is what technology is built on: convenience.
No doubt, you have been subject to spending countless hours in front of the computer screen, whether it be online gaming, social networking or, in between uncontrollable laughs, searching the best of YouTube. Throughout the duration of our short lives we have seen the development from gameboys to nintendo DS, PlayStation into PS3, and XBox into XBox Kinect. All of which have served as purposeful instruments for great amusement and fun. Such consoles nowadays go that extra mile and provide exercise programs like Wii Fit.
Allowing the busier beings of society to still meet their required 30 minutes of daily exercise. Extensive technological advancements have made it possible to verse friends or strangers in our favourite games online, as many COD lovers would know. The options today are endless and one should never feel bored with so much technology accessible, with countless applications, games and websites providing challenges and entertainment – 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year.
For many Gen Y and Z’ers, it is impossible to imagine searching through countless stacks of books, scouring pages for snippets of information to complete assignments and homework. Today we are lucky enough to open up an Internet tab and Google or Yahoo away and in less than a second we are handed copious amounts of relevant information. Nearly everyone is a proud owner of some form of technology whether it is a mobile phone, iPod, television, laptop or desktop computer. Times have changed and it is evident in today’s kindergartens where some children are being educated through iPads rather than on chalkboards.
One of the greatest influences that technology has on our adolescent lives other than for entertainment purposes is the learning factor it possesses. With schools such as ours allowing us to use word documents rather than notebooks, it has definitely lightened the loads for us all… With YouTube being the second most used search engine available in the world, it not only delivers hilarious entertainment bit is also a main supplier of short documentaries and informative programs. Technology has altered the way “us kids” are being taught.
It has transformed countless hours studying from a book into online, interactive websites accessible whenever the help is required. Technology’s role in society today has a major impact on our overall sense of living and that is why in the 21st century, it is offered as a subject. The three of us who study Information and Technology as an elective have witnessed, ourselves, the relationship of “Technology and the Media. ” This term consisted of first learning the basics of image editing and furthermore digitally enhancing a photo to change the overall appearance of our selected image.
It has allowed for us to change the way we perceive magazine covers and billboard images, questioning whether or not it has undergone retouching. The truth is that, come the end of the day, technology in recent years has not only benefitted our learning styles, techniques and the quality of work we put forward, but the convenience in which help is always readily available in some way, shape or form. “OMG, you heard, did you see what they uploaded, wait? No you haven’t, one second; let me just upload it to your wall; you got it? Wow, that was fast, talk about convenience.
” Today, technology influences our every move. It is the basis of our global society and without it we would spiral back to the ages of using a string an a cup between windows to talk to our next door neighbours, rather than logging into our Facebook, Twitter or Live Messenger accounts. Communication is a big part of our lives and as software has continued to advance, the world has become smaller. This being due to the fact that technology has enabled us to stay in contact with friends and families wherever we may find ourselves in the world.
You could say that the proof is no longer in the pudding, but in our mobile devices. Such proof of technology’s continual, rapid and dramatic advances can be seen when comparing a phone from 2006 to one in 2011. Here’s a quick fact for everybody: it is a million times cheaper, one thousand times more powerful and about a hundred thousand times smaller than the one computer at MIT in 1965. A statement from Ray Kurzweil supports the continual advancement of technology. He said “what used to fit in a building now fits in your pocket, what fits in your pocket now will fit inside a blood cell in 25 years.
” We look back now and question why someone would carry a brick of a phone in their handbags but what about 20 years from now? Just imagine how technology will have progressed. A phone in the 21st century is no longer perceived as just a source of communication, but a way to stay connected with the world. Take the breakthrough – iPhones – a GPS, a source of Internet, personal modem, music and video player, camera, video and audio recorder, an ebook reader, updater of stocks, weather guide, personal diary, voice memos and an endless source of many apps. Why?
It comes back to convenience and convenience alone. In conclusion, despite all the positives of technology, the breakthroughs and the advances, there have always been negative arguments surrounding the positive buzz. Some studies argue that due to the global society devoting a good portion of their lives to technology, it is having a negative effect; some statistics suggesting an increase in diabetes and other health related issues – what is technology was stopping such problems… ADVANTAGES first topic Technology is a gift for human beings. Technology is existing from thousands of years.
There is an explosive revolution in technology in last 50 years. Technology plays a wonderful role in people’s daily life. It is impossible to imagine the life without technology nowadays. In this essay, I will discuss how modern life changed human life. There are several points which are going to show the advantages of modern technology.

On the other hand, old simple technology was better for people. In the previous times people were more interested to learn the things by their own. In old times people used to have more leisure time than today.
Life was safe according to social and environment aspects. To put it in nut shell, Modern technology make our lives more convenient although it has some advantages and disadvantages on human life. modern technology make life more convenient.

There are many modern tools like these examples making life better for us but it matters according to use of it.
Sometimes people could get harm by modern tools if they don’t be careful on use of it. For example, computers are dangerous and waste of time when they are not used carefully. So that, the most useful tool would convert to the most harmful tool. In modern age, we stopped our many habits even traditional ones. For Muslims in eids, visiting our elders is a great action. But slowly new generation loses that special habit. We humans are social creatures so must live together and communicate. Technology made communication easier for us.
In spite of this, people waste their time with technology and this situation makes us antisocial. There are many killers of time in modern tools. Even we forget everything in life, only focus on these kind of things. Even old social games left their places to antisocial computer games. Change of habits and traditional actions disturbs old people but young people are not disturbed about this situation. Advancing age caused change of world system and the most important reason of this is improving of technology. Money became more valuable for us, even we started to care money more than their emotions.
Weapons are manufactured to kill more people and earn. People use technology to earn more on everything. Watching sad events on news got simple for us anymore. After all these, I can say that bad people use technology better than good people or technology makes us evil day by day. People have to live in conditions of their age because advencing and changing age is an obligatory. For all these reasons, in that technology age we must know to live in a good way. Even we must save our good habits from past and convert them to modern age. We must search for history to learn our faults in past.
In conclusion, good life can exist in every time, just learn to live so. Note: May you correct my faults in paragraphs or give your ideas ?
