Essay On Computer Technology A Boon

Technologies and inventions have revolutionized the modern era. In modern age, with booming techno world, the computers have extended their reach to everyone from children to adults and it has got everyone hooked onto it. As computers have become really affordable for families, nearly every household of middle and middle upper class family has one.

The introduction of 3-D games and the consistent use of it have left a negative impact on children’s minds. Psychologists and sociologists believe that some of the violent game leads to imitation of violent activities in children. Thus we find a behavioral change in them. Evidences have been found regarding the addiction of these computer games. People aged between 25 to 30 years cannot retreat from this childhood activity within themselves.

Computers are a big boon to children as they not only help them with their education but also help them enhance their knowledge in many ways. But due to the presence of this electronic device, children have started spending more time in front of it as computer games have become a dearly thing to them. This has not only led to their health getting affected but has also put their social life on the backburner.

Computer influence has taken over children lives so much that today they prefer to play games on it rather than go out and indulge in some physical exercise by playing various sports. Such a thing severely affects a child’s health as a lack of physical exercise could lead to health problems. Research shows that youngsters who spend their valuable time in playing video games fifteen hours a week are intended to be more aggressive in nature. A good example of this is my 14 year old cousin who was addicted to computer games at a very early age. His addiction confined him to his room for most of the day and he rarely went out to play some sport. This addiction proved to be harsh on him after a year when health problems such as pain in the eyes and inability to concentrate on studies, started affecting him. The only treatment which the doctor suggested was for him to go out and involve in physical activities.

Together with the computers, internet today has more or less erased the physical boundaries between people. With online social networking fast catching on with children, social lives of children have been affected very much. Earlier children used to hangout with each other in groups, have fun playing board games with each other, etc. But now they prefer interacting with each other online. This has led to them becoming less active with the people around them and has also affected their personality. I had also experienced myself getting caught in the world of social networking which led me to become very introvert in nature.

It is necessary for children as well as parents to understand the dire consequences of this mind gripping machine. It not only halts the child’s resistive power to the outer world but also the mental ability to think and response. To avoid children getting sucked into the world of computers so much so that it starts affecting them health wise and disconnects them from the real world, parents have to start advising them at an early age about the ill-effects of too much computing and they should take care that their children spends more quality time with their family and friends. In this way computer would not only help children have better worldly knowledge but also make them responsible adults in the future.

  • Computers are a bane for human race

    Computers are indeed a very huge bane for human race. My worthy opponents have stated some statements which i would like to clarify and contradict
    firstly computers are a nuisance . My worthy opponents have stated that computers provide us with info that can cleanse ignorance . But most of the info uploaded on computers are not verified and hence can be highly misleading and false. It can also present some vulgar and racial statements that can hurt many sentiments

  • Computers are a curse to children!!!

    Computers are reshaping children’s lives at home and at school, in profound and unexpected ways. Computers pose serious health hazards to children. The risks include repetitive stress injuries, eyestrain, obesity, social isolation, and, for some, long-term damage to physical, emotional, or intellectual development.
    Children need stronger personal bonds with caring adults. Yet powerful technologies are distracting children and adults from each other.
    Children need time for active, physical play; hands-on lessons of all kinds, especially in the arts; and direct experience of the natural world. Research shows these are not frills but are essential for healthy child development.
    Electronic communication, particularly social media -- which has reached nearly 100% penetrations among children - has a strong attraction and draw and it appears that young students can't help themselves from checking it frequently. Research shows that the vast majority of teenagers check their e-communication tools every 15 minutes or less and if they can't check in that often, they get highly anxious.
    The solution is a bit counterintuitive, but it works. It is called a "Technology Break," or a "Tech Break" for short. Here is how it works. As soon as your son or daughter is ready to do their homework, they get a 1-2 minute tech break during which they can use their phone, computer or whatever technology they desire. At this point, all technology is turned off including the TV, music, Smartphone and computer. If the computer is needed for homework, make sure that only the necessary applications or websites are open and nothing else. Kids appreciate knowing exactly when they will get to check in with their virtual worlds and that it will not be an undefined long time such as "when your homework is done, you can use your phone."
