  2. 2. ESF- Technology Danish “IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY IN THE EARLY 21ST CENTURY” This paper will describe the significant impact of technology on human life in the early 21st century. The modern technology is growing substantially in the developed countries and people are facing different problems. This essay will consider the impact of technology in the workplace, education, culture awareness and communication. Technology affecting workplaces in the twenty first century lead to quick change and the trend is likely to continue. Modern innovation in changing the thinking of the people around the globe and it is valuable for the entire society. It would produce new jobs, new innovation, and give new ideas to the world. Furthermore, the Jobs in the field of Engineering and information technology continue to increase for the people who have talent. In schools, universities and different organizations, young people are looking for vocations in engineering and science industry. Analysts predict that the engineering and technology field will increase exponentially in developed countries. Additionally, nowadays government require more talented and educated people to deal with their systems regarding security and different problems (Mayhew, 2015). Furthermore, the computer aided design allows people to outline innovation permits individuals to make and test their thoughts before doing any physical movement (Cameron, 2012). Globally, people are communicating through
  3. 3. ESF- Technology Danish online access at different platform around the globe and communicating with each, it often shows us how people interact in the 21st century (R, 2006). Media and online electronic communication have changed the world into a shape of different dimension. 10 years ago, the technologies were scarcely present in the lives of U.S. youngsters and high schoolers. Today, people are participating in communications over emoticons, and battling for their autonomy (self-confidence) (Ito, 2008). However, electronic communication is significantly affecting our capacity to remain close to loved ones. Furthermore, young people create and explore new type of expression and principles for social behaviour and the unusual condition of young people engagement (Horst, 2009). Moreover, the online communication in the 21st century which never stop, it may change the mind of the people by the use of technology. Through this system they never feel alone and they always be heard through social sites. Additionally, the interfacing electronically can likewise promote separation. Although, the simplicity of uniting people by the use of social sites and websites and promote the culture awareness globally, it seems to have a positive affect and people are learning more about different culture through technology. Moreover, information about the different culture can be access online in any language and it can convert through interpreter to one language to another (Goldman, 2007). Cutting edge innovation has made staying in touch easier than before. However, the tradition of face to face contact with each other may have gone by the wayside. Although, not all parts of modern communication technology are negative. Since such a large number of individuals own mobile phones, the likelihood of having one available when an emergency emerges is useful. If an invoice or document paper is

However, technology has its own importance, but it should not replace personal contact (Goldman, 2007). As found in TED talks show in 2014, “Turkle shares her thoughts on technology’s impact. She said, as we expect more from technology; we start to expect less from each other”. She proposed that, we are more open to share our feeling by the use of electronic devices rather than discuss to talk about the issue in individual. This is the result of the belief that online is less personal and this is the negative effect on culture awareness as well. Humans are demolishing their culture as compare to the past (Turkle, 2012). Technology has made considerable progress, however, unless human connection is restored, individuals will continue on the way to isolation. In the 21st century, people often find their work easier because of technology. Technology brings the fact to our life, where we have lack of awareness, less confident while communicating. Additionally, in future the technology might not work to sort out relationship issues, domestic problems in relatives and many more. Humans are relying on technology to make their lives less easy. Furthermore, if there is no technology in our lives, it would be very difficult for a while until everybody may assumed, how to live without it. However, we should begin that move sooner rather than later. Referencing:  Cameron, L. (2012) Renewable technologies: breaking down the barriers.
