@Linde Interesting you bring that up. In my experience, there are major advantages that students access to the internet in terms of education. But that's all I grew up with, so I am just used to school being done that way. I haven't been home much today, although I'm embarrassed to say I've been thinking about this conversation a lot. My latest thoughts on the issue are as followsa-hard-days-night-paul-11

The majority of the incredible technology we have access to, especially social media, is terribly abused. You can talk to someone in another country without any effort, and yet so many people just use at as an outlet to their inner egomaniac (Taking pictures of their food, their clothes etc) However I totally understand the advantage of having that kind of communication open to you. What I don't understand is why people my age feel the need to have a handful of blogs, a Facebook, and probably a Twitter account as well. Why? What does the average 16 year old have to say that would be of interest to anyone? Absolutely nothing. It brings out this unbridled narcism in so many people that is just bazar 

 

That's what I like about this forum- there is real conversation happening and connections being made. It isn't just an outlet for hopeless egomaniacs.

ahdn_paul_06 The anonymity of the internet and lack of real life consequences could explain some of it. Here is something that explains some of the internet behavior a little

Welcome back @Sky999. Glad to hear the other job is behind you, you are moving on and you are posting again. Good to have you around.

 

As for technology and its use, its all about balance as with everything else. Dont let it overtake your life and let it become the be-all of your existance and you will be fine as it has many benefits. Just be able to put it down (whether its an ipod/ipad, smartphone, whatever) and get thru a few hours without withdrawl symptoms. As some folk here will know i dont have a mobile phone as i hate how folk become so heavily attached to them and i'm not on any social network site like facebook or twitter, mainly as i dont care what folk are up to in their mundane bits of life nor do i want to be hassled to like someone just to boost their ego. However i'm not a social person and do not crave such things. Such an existance has it good and bad side. Its up to each individual to make it thru the day.

As for kiddies with their devices then its down to the parents to limit the amount of time their beloved are on the damn things and ensure they get that social personal contact and interaction - same goes with watching tv: a couple of hours can be good but for goodness sake turn it off and read them a book and stimulate them away from it. Get them running around playing in or outdoors and dont fear them making a mess. I hated art in school as it was paint in the lines and be tidy, apples must be red - screw that for a sense of fun, i'm making a disaster zone around me and apples can be purple so a-hard-days-night-paul-11 to you.

All my opinion.    apple01
