This rapid change could potentially be harmful to adolescents and society as a whole. As a result of the increased use of technology throughout the years, society has become lazy, dependent, and unable to effectively think without the aid of a technological device. In many ways, modern technology has had the effect of making us work harder, just to stay in the same place. Technology is becoming integrated into school systems rapidly all around the world. Though many believe this will positively effect the student’s education, it will more than likely create a technological dependency that the student will retain throughout his or her educational career.
