This is for the kind consideration of Parents, Grand Parents, Teachers, Medical Doctors and Politicians who are concerned with the future of their children and the Humanity as a whole.We need a new generation with multi-faceted and multi-dimensional genius and not mere one-dimensional and linear experts or computer engineers.

Exposing Digital Technology at a tender age results in Digitally Modifying Children. Little Children are conditioned to Think and Behave Linearly and Uni- Dimensional just like the Data Structure and Computers are designed . As a result their ability to think multi-dimensional and non-linearl ways and also to Capture and Assilimiate Knowledge will be lost The early advantage of brain development will offset by later inability to grasp Knowledge but only Data or Information.It will affect their mental and physical growth and drive away the spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship and adventure, even affect the sexual potentiality.

DIGITALLY MODIFIED CHILDREN- THE NEW THREAT TO THE HUMANITY

  1. 1. DIGITALLY MODIFIED CHILDREN- THE NEW CHALLENGE OF THE HUMANITY DR. RAJU M. MATHEW
  2. 2. DIGITAL MODIFICTION OFCHILDREN Knowingly or unknowingly, the children even at a very young age are subjected to digital modification by their Parents and Teachers in Homes or Schools or Malls. This is most common in cities and high tech societies. Due to digital modifications, children will miss some of their inborn nature, talents and faculties. When they are grown up, they have to act or behave just like machines or super robotics. This will be the greatest challenge faced by the Humanity within ten to fifteen years, especially in all affluent and high tech societies.
  3. 3. TURNING TOWARDS BACKWARDREGIONS The only option for affluent and high societies is to turn towards the remotest or backward regions for talents, brains, vitality, risk taking and innovation, as their children or youth have become violent, fearful and impotent for the digital modifications of their brain and mind. Because the very survival of any society depends on the best brains, talents, vibrant and innovative youth. Some of the developed and affluent nations like the USA, France, Germany and etc have already encountered this problem in a mild manner. Within ten years, they will wage wars for intellectually, psychologically and physically vibrant and sexually potent young men and women from Asia and Africa.
  4. 4. PREPARING CHILDREN FOR THE HIGH TECHNOLOGY AGE Every child must be prepared to live and grow in a complex high technology age, unfamiliar to its parent. The basic question is : whether the digital technology must be introduced to the children at a very young age or a later age. Introduction of technology at a tender age adversely affects the brain development of the children. The early advantages will offset by later stagnation or partial brain development. Child Psychologists, Brain Researchers, Teachers and Parents have not properly examined this crucial
  5. 5. THE UNLUCKY LOTS In the Digital Age, children are molded without ‘Mind’ and ‘Knowledge’. They are the unlucky lot who miss their childhood without care and love of the parents and the teachers. They are made addicts of digital gadgets. They are contempt to grow without beautiful nursery rhymes, fairy tales and grandmas’ stories. These soft things help the healthy development of their little brains and personalities, including problem solving, adventurous and innovative abilities. Let the brain of the children develop multi- dimensionally and non-linearly so that they could solve complex problems, make innovations and be innovative and above all enjoy their life
  6. 6. BUSY LIFE Parents are busy without much time to express their love and care of their children. Parents want to keep their children engaged without crying or doing naughty deeds. They find smart phones, tablets, laptops and computer games the easy way to make children engaged. At a very young age, children are conditioned or programmed to work with computer systems, programming languages, searching the net and killing the enemies. Most parents are proud of their kids for their computer mastery.
  7. 7. OVERLOADING AT SCHOOLSTOO Schools, including Kindergarten, are getting Smart with digitization. As a result, little children are programmed to behave or act in a pre-determined way like machines, loosing their inborn nature and talents. Children are fed with too much Data or Information which are one-dimensional, linear and static , without much ideas and concepts which are multi-dimensional, non-linear and dynamic. Both in home and school, children are overloaded with too much Data or Information.
  8. 8. BRAIN IS DYNAMIC, MULTI- DIMENSIONAL AND NON-LINEAR Human brain is designed for developing and capturing concepts and processing knowledge in a dynamic, non-linear and multi-dimensional mode. This is more evident in children than adults. When children are fed with too much data and programmed to think in a digital way and act in a pre- determined mode, lop sided developments of their brain and nervous brakes down are inevitable that would become more evident when they are grown up. Abnormal behaviors, suppressed emotions, lack of vitality, including sexual impotency, inability to innovate and solve complex problems and lack of courage are the final outcomes of too much digitization of children and overloaded them with too much Data or Information.
  9. 9. NOT DATA OR INFORMATION BUT KNOWLEDGE Nobody, including children, can be enlightened with Data or Information but with Knowledge. The building blocks of knowledge are concepts that are multi-dimensional, non-linear and dynamic in nature. One and the same concept can be presented to little children, teen ages, university students and experts according to their level of understanding and abstractness, that too on the basis of their power of vocabulary and language competency. Children at the young age can assimilate lot of knowledge as part of their play or listening stories. Nursery rhymes, fairy tales, grandmas’ stories and Aesop or Arabian Night stories are means of knowledge transfer and developing communication skills among
  10. 10. VIBRANT AND DYNAMICCHILDREN Healthy children are vibrant and dynamic and therefore naughty and quarrelsome also. That keeps their brain and nerves active and growing. When little children are forced to sit hours together before digital screen, it will spoil their eye sights, affect their brain and nervous developments. It is found that most of the computer games have an adverse impacts on the brain, personality and even physical developments of the children.
  11. 11. CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN Most of what is written by Child Psychologists, Pedagogy Specialists and even Pediatrics are absurd and stereotyped material without taking into account the integrated personality development, intellectual and emotional maturity and physical development of the children. In many cases, they act as the promotion agents of video game or toy making or pharmaceutical multinational corporations without bothering the children. The poor parents and teachers are always misguided by these experts. Children are always their victims. It is high time to protect the Human Rights of the children and prevent the child abuse in the digital way for the sake of the Humanity, healthy existence of our children.
  12. 12. PROTECTINGTHE RIGHTS OF THE CHILDREN Every child has a right to develop and flourish his or her inborn talents and know the world around them. Every child has aright to protect him or her from the burden of the over-loaded data or information and develop his or her Body, Mind and Intellect. Every child has a right to get care and love from parents, teachers and society at large. Every child has a right to protect from radiation and too much digitalization.
  13. 13. NOT AGAINST TECHNOLOGY No doubt, this is a Digital Age, the Age of Data and Information. We are in transition, a transition from the Age of Data to the Age of Knowledge; from the Age of Information Technology to the Age of Knowledge Industry for Knowledge Consumption and Production. We have to equip our children to live in the Age of Knowledge and using technologies to process, produce and deliver Knowledge for the knowledge – intensive social production processes when they are grown up. They need to be innovative and bold with vitality and complex problem-solving competencies.
