Abstract

The topic for my paper is the negative effects that technology has on younger generations. My topic is important because technology has become one of the fastest growing mediums of our generation and an over reliance on it can lead to undesirable outcomes. My research question is to what extent does technology have a negative impact on a younger generation’s ability to learn, work and communicate? With the advancements of the devices and software that adolescents use, it is easier for them to lose focus in class and stay on task while at work. The disciplines that I am using for this paper are; information technology(IT), science and technology, and sociology. IT is the study of using technology such as computers, cell phones and other forms of telecommunications to store and retrieve data. This discipline was chosen because it will help explain why modern technology has become a great phenomenon. Science and technology is the study of the interactions between humans and technology. This discipline was chosen because it will explain why young people have grown so attached to their devices. Sociology is the study of society’s development and social interactions. This will help explain why people communicate more with the use of technology, rather than face-to-face conversations. The negative effects of technology are technological dependency, social ineptitude and lack of communication and concentration skills, is my thesis. These negative effects are amongst some of the most common ramifications that extended use of technology can have on a person.
