Is Technology headed in the right direction?

is technology headed in the right direction

Yes:

  • Technology is making our lives easier. Due to new technological innovations living standards have improved significantly.
  • Technology is making our society inclusive. Many senior citizens, people with special needs are also able to live independently due to new technological innovations. So, we can say that our society is moving in the right direction with the progress in technology.

No:

  • Now there are more threats to privacy. More and more technological tools are being created to hack and steal personal data. Cybercrimes are one of the major issues of modern times.
  • Cyberattacks have become a common phenomenon. Due to heavy dependence on technology, we are now more vulnerable to financial scams. This makes us wonder whether technology is headed in the right direction.
  • Technology is being used to topple governments and also to cause losses to countries.

Conclusion:

Even though there are some threats of technology to humanity, overall technology progress is headed in the right direction by improving our living standards.

  1. I my opinion everything has its own advantages and disadvantages…. But its our responsibility to focus on advantages as it is necessary for our future requirements also focus on disadvantages to find the solution for it.
    Kisi cheez k disadvantages k vajha se ham uska advantages ko neglect nhi kr skte…. Bcz it may become more worse for us

  2. Technology is usually considered to be a boom , we can see in this pandemic, many students who are privileged with internet had access to online education and there are a lot of ways to upgrade our skills and learn if used constructively. Well there are a lot of scams and threats too it depends on us how to stay safe and secure.

    1. Well said nandini but I am confining my comment to a different perspective. This too much use of technology turns an inherent vivid attitude of human self learning inactive. Thinking and decision making abilities are now difficult to find among students. They are even absent in secondary students. They have their physical ICT storage and real time access to wayward source of knowledge which they use only they need and plans or download it for further use otherwise they hardly find time to refer it.
      Secondly, if you remember your school days where you learnt your lessons on black board with chalk written solutions, our gurus taught us by verbal delivery, their gestures, interruptions in between by a silly question( which infact was not silly rather the reason the lessons are still in our memories), preparing homework with the help of classworks, and preparing examination with the help of self written notes. These all involve great effort and renders joy of learning. Even if we appear in competitive exams and Qs come directly what we studied in school days we catch a ready rendzevous of the lesson and may quickly pick up the right answer. Instead these Online classes requires good network condition , creating all our study system device compatible and fetching all these drains off our effort which was likely to be applied for LEARNING. Morever this new tech savvy learning environment offloads our cognitive ability. I highly reject this methodology of teaching learning. If self learning may be adopted deliberately ignoring these useless techs then BOOKS are of greater help.
