The main consequences of technology impacting our daily life are difficult to communicate and interact with others, so you should be especially careful not to fall into such situations. There are many debates about whether the new electronic media have impoverished our language and the ability to communicate and express ourselves, and this may be a question that would answer each individually, but the truth is that the way we now communicate has undergone a remarkable transformation. If we go back to analyze the changes that have been written technologies throughout the history of mankind, we realize that everyone has had consequences in social practices.
Often the form of communication is homogeneous only for certain people, depending on their age, where they live, the environment in which they live, schooling and even socioeconomic status they belong to. However, the electronic media and, above all, social networks have broken through those barriers by creating new language codes that enable oral and written communication regardless of the characteristics of the individual.
While often the use of technology in areas such as education is promoted, consider raising strategies where it is always used as a tool, don’t belittle other major educational processes as written communication and reading.
Difficulty of communicating ideas
Before the chat, no one had ever written so much and so badly digitally. There is no language chat, but deformations of the tongue. And in this sense, if we promote the chat as a fun, we are disabled the student. With this exercise primitive babble of the tongue, which makes an jibarismo expression, we are turning the boy into an expressive inept and, therefore, in a second class citizen in the future (The Gazette, June 16, 2006) .
This expresses Pedro Luis Barcia, director of the Argentina Academy of Letters, concerning communication establishing youth through digital media. A somewhat hard,but that accounts for a phenomenon that is strongly attacking our society and has the greatest impact on young people.
As a teacher is easy to detect the difficulty that students in communicating their ideas and the huge amount of bugs in their written texts. Will technology has achieved only discapacitarnos? I do not think so. As in many aspects of life, in this case technology can only influence (positively or negatively) more not determine the behavior of a certain individual or a certain group of people.
What happens, I think, it is that we are using technology incorrectly. Instead of diminishing digital media, we should see them and use them as opportunities to practice our written communication (blogs, social networks, forums, etc.) and encourage reading (digital books, news, magazines, etc.).
While the chat has expedited communication through the abbreviation of words and expressions (smileys), we should never consider it as a means of formal communication and, much less, move that language to other aspects of our lives.
It seems that our “virtual” life has become more important than reality, and this is impacting significantly the way we relate to others. Communication is the central aspect of a relationship between two people, but mobile devices are creating a barrier that moves further away.
In this regard, it is important that parents take special care with children. It’s OK to use the tablet, to develop higher order cognitive skills and digital skills, but should never lose the ability to interact with their peers. The game and socialization are crucial to the development of a child factors, so it is important to control the time they spend at the computer or other device.
The human being is a social being by nature and coexist with others provides a warmth that does not compare or the world’s most expensive smartphone. Try to speak and live more often with family and friends do not miss the best moments of your life.
