We are living in an age of science and technology. We see many wonderful invention day-by-days. These inventions have no doubt, provided us with an enormous stock of knowledge but it has failed to guide us as how to put it to the best use.
Merriam Webster Dictionary describes technology as:
“The practical application of knowledge especially in a particular area
The specialized aspects of a particular field of endeavor”
Children and adults have nowadays have a clear mindset to use technology like laptops, Ipads, and Tablet etc for every sole purpose of life that has dramatically influenced moral development of human’s life. They have just removed books from their hands and trying to get Ipads and Laptops; therefore downloading those applications which provide more accuracy, flexibility and extra information. Which I think is not at all legally correct, verified and trusted.
Remember the quote from our most honored leader of 20th century
“There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the book. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two.”
Muhammad Ali Jinnah
Despite the fact that these technologies are becoming backbone of information, somehow do you think that it is always possibly correct? Let us imagine a scene where a child is gaining information on Ipads or Laptop but suddenly it drops and breaks. Or while using it, the electricity gets turned off. And what if battery finishes. All these are the demerits of the technology. Furthermore, the information is also not appropriate. It can lead to plagiarism.
Books on the other hand are completely different. Sometime books falls, we picks it and continue reading. If electricity is powered off, then we can lit anything and continue reading. As there is not battery so no worries of charging it. Moreover, books can be kept for upcoming generation too! They are constantly circulating information for us.
Therefore, I strongly emphasize that these technological gadgets should not be permitted to children until they understand the true meaning of using it. Somehow, if a parent allows his child to use, then they must ensure about security and keep guarding them because the youth search engines aren’t dirt-free. In fact, they have thousands of millions abysmal searches everyday. Don’t you believe me, then go and check your child’s mobile, internet and other technological gadgets history!
