The 21st century has been an era of many technological breakthroughs and advancements, technologies with a single purpose, namely, making their lives better by helping people be more productive at work. One such technological breakthrough is computer technology.
Computer technology has grown from a room-sized computer to a small, well-designed palm-top computer. Today, computers have become an indispensable part of people’s lives, especially in workplaces, companies, workplaces, schools, offices, and even homes.
It has made the world smaller, but has it made our world better? It then leads us to ask whether computer technology is good or bad. Now let’s try to look at some bad effects first. With the advent of computers and the internet, access to pornographic sites has become easier, children are more exposed to obscene content; some students cannot focus on their studies as they play computer games. The number of obesity cases has increased and has been attributed to too much computer activity leading to less physical activity among large numbers of people.
On the other side of the coin, computers have opened up a whole new world of possibilities. It is now easier to learn about world events; you can even find a job online; can spread advocacy to large numbers of people around the world; and most importantly, it is now easier to connect with each other even if you are on the other side of the world.
Computer technology, like any material in the world, was created with the common good in mind. Just like a knife, it was made for cutting and slicing food to speed up people’s cooking time, but it can also be used to kill people and you cannot ban the use of a knife to stop killing. Therefore, you cannot blame computers for the problems that computers can cause, because it is the people who use them that cause the problem. There are advantages and disadvantages to consider.
But the problem is not computer technology itself; The problem is with those who use it. Computer technology is generally good because when used correctly it can bring a lot, but if used mindlessly it can do great harm.
Humans have choices about how they use the earth’s resources, and that choice will determine how certain materials, whether good or bad, will affect people.
