21/09/20: Do we depend on computers?

Since their invention, computers have fascinated people all over the world, but an insteresting phenomenon has ocurred in the last years.

The world of today depends heavily on computers and this dependence has both positive and negative impacts. Computers have many benefits, but these benefits also come with negative effects. Various arguments have risen against computers and researchers claim that computers are having negative effects on children.

Most students use the computers to carry out research and work on their assignments instead of independent thinking. They use the content got from websites to complete their assignments and this discourages learning. This increases the level of illiteracy because learners are deterred from thinking independently. This kills creativity because everything they do is copied. And it’s getting worse, when it comes to spelling young learners will not have any idea on how to spell because they are used to the computer which spells for them. It is important to note that small spellings become difficult for younger learners to memorize. If they did it in writing it would be easier for them to remember. These factors are on the rise and it is recommend for computers to be reserved for older learners.

The issue that should be put into consideration when it comes to the use of computers is the safety of personal information. It is good to share information through computers, but there is no guarantee that the information is safe. This personal information includes addresses, full names, phone numbers and other personal details. Too much dependence on computers has led to people being comfortable, and trust that their information is safe in the computers.

Almost everywhere in the world people use computers; the use of smart-cards is computerized, traffic lights are computerized, bank doors, manufacturing companies have robots that are run by computers. When these computers or the internet fail, it means everything will come to a standstill. Over reliance on computers has led to the smallest thing that can be performed without a computer has been computerized.

Conclusively, computers are very important in the lives of humans, but it is essential to reduce over dependence. People should try and reduce the overuse of computers because despite them making life easier, they have as many disadvantages as advantages. It might be difficult for people to note that they are too much dependent on computers, but with time they realized that it is quite dangerous.

    As regular computer users, What can we do to protect our personal information?
    As the first recommendation and perhaps the most important, we must be responsible with our movements on the Internet, we must be clear about the pages that are being browsed, keep an antivirus updated, be wary of pages that generate a lot of spam. Thus, it is also necessary to always close our sessions, not to enter through open internet networks.

    At home, Is it possible to set rules to our young children? How?
    Of course, first it’s necessary to be clear when rights, rules and limits are set, we must use encouragement and support, not just discipline for broken rules.Likewise, we must be consistent in enforcing rules, and finally it’s important to Instill a sense of social responsibility in our. children.

    At work, How can we use computers wisely?
    We can use the Internet for our own personal use on our unpaid lunch break only, then we can also use encryption and passwords to protect both work and personal data.Another way of intelligent use is not to post opinions, negative or rude remarks about our employer or co-workers on social media sites.
