Man has slowly crawled out from the darkness and into the light due to the progress of technology. Technology has expanded at such a rate that things have changed dramatically. Now, we are so accustomed to technology that it is impossible to live without it. How familiar are you aware of the technology you are using? Let us have a look at some important issues and understand why we need to have a handle on technology.
In the past, the development of technology was not nearly as fast as it is today. The stiff competition between scientists and engineers has totally revolutionized what we think, what we do, how we care for our health and even what we eat. The changes are so rapid that we need to keep up or we will simply be left behind.
From a humble kitchen appliance to complicated gadgets and electronic goods to automobiles, the technology used is so advanced that we need to keep in tune with the changing trends. There is hardly anywhere that we don’t use technology in our everyday life. Therefore, it is a requirement for every individual to have technological knowledge for the enjoyment of life.
Through technology, every year the world becomes a smaller place. What was once a dream of a global village has become a reality due, to ever faster methods of communication and transport. If we don’t want to be the odd man out in an advancing society, we should always update our tools with the advancement of systems around us. Government’s role in streamlining technology to community is also very prevalent in our present society.
Today’s children are the assets of tomorrow and so they need to be educated technologically from the classroom to the highest level of technical learning considering its advantages over the traditional method of teaching. It should be made a lifelong activity of the children for a better tomorrow.
Whether you are in the office or workplace or at home, you just can’t ignore technology unless you have decided to go back to the caves. Even in your kitchen, modern technology has greatly enhanced cooking in style at ease with precision and speed.
In order to go to your office, you have to depend on an easy means of transport to reach your office in time. It is equally important in our day to day activities like banking, traveling, shopping, health and fitness,learning, working etc. to mention a few. You need to have technological knowledge in all these for an easier and more comfortable life.
Health care, industry, medicine, tourism, schools and institutions, entertainment, transport and communication and agriculture have spread their wings to fly with the advanced technologies at hand. Life will never be the same again with the ever-increasing development in technology.
The rapid development in technology has greatly improved the standard of living. It enables us to live a luxurious life ranging from cooking food to modern gadgets to clothing and the like. The houses we live in, the gadgets we use and the cars we drive are all related to modern technology. It meets our basic needs and requirements with ease and comfort.
In-depth research in medicine is possible because of the development in technology. It has touched and boosted almost every aspect of life. Now with the advanced technology you can have fresh or processed food from your refrigerator. Gadgets like mobile phones, laptop computers and tablets bring people closer to each other through contacts or social media networks.
It is a sad thing that many people are far behind the standard of living for lack of technical know-how of modern equipment. Most of the elderly are not tech savvy due to the fast pace of changes in technology, which in turn creates a widening generation gap.
To stop this gap widening further, the whole community should be encouraged to be familiar with the changing trends of technology and to enjoy the improved quality of life it brings.
However, checks and balances are needed to control cyber crime and hacking which is also on the rise in our communities. These are an unwelcome addition to our modern, technology driven societies.
Considering the advantages and the disadvantages of technology, the drawbacks are quickly out numbered by the benefits. Therefore, we should not hesitate to embrace the ever faster progress of technology, and the lifestyle enhancements it brings.
