Growing Up Online - I find it disconcerting that teens live much of their lives in a virtual society. “Growing Up Online”, barely scratches the surface of the breadth and depth to which technology permeates modern society. Teens continue to struggle for independence and self-identification, but with less face-to-face interaction than in the past. Many view e-communication as reaching out to the masses. Texting, the internet, and social networking connect many people with those otherwise unavailable to them. However, the connection is less personal, and more tenuous than real social encounters....   [tags: Technology] 882 words

Communication Technology and the End of Childhoo - ... On a day to day basis, I frequently use technology to complete school work and I know that I would happily exchange it for toys. Though for the modern child, I suppose, seven is when children grow out of toys as they see adults using gadgets and want to copy them. Some children are completely reliant on technology by the age of nine. However I am not saying that technology is bad but for children to be dependent on it at a young age the consequences cannot be good. It means that they are prematurely exposed to the dangers of the internet and the world before they have matured enough to fully understand it....   [tags: mobile phones and young children] 903 words
