  2. 2. Technologies Affects <ul><li>Although technology has made life easier its made kids </li></ul><ul><li>more socially distant from one another. </li></ul><ul><li>Kids talk more through text messaging and online chat </li></ul><ul><li>rooms. </li></ul><ul><li>Music players have become a sort of addiction for some </li></ul><ul><li>People. </li></ul><ul><li>Cell phones and other devices causes distractions in </li></ul><ul><li>school. </li></ul><ul><li>Kids are more short tempered because of it. </li></ul><ul><li>Kids become lazy and stuck to their chairs and sofas. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Social <ul><li>Although computers have connected us and help us find knowledge about certain subjects for school it isn’t always used in that way. </li></ul><ul><li>Most kid socialize through the computer on online chat rooms rather than going out to actually socialize with their friends. </li></ul><ul><li>Kid hardly talk face to face any more. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Online chat rooms and texting <ul><li>Online chat rooms and texting has let people across the world from each other send a message in a matter of seconds an that’s great tool for people but some of those people abuse that tool. </li></ul><ul><li>The correct name for this term is Cyber bullying. </li></ul><ul><li>Its one person sends verbally abusive messages to another person and breaks down their self-esteem so low that they become afraid of the world or suicidal. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Music devices <ul><li>Music is a great way to relax or concentrate for some people but what some of those people don’t know is they might be addicted to their music player. </li></ul><ul><li>Studies show that iPods and mp3 player act as a type of addiction because it takes a person to a comfort zone like a drug does and when it is tooken away from them they put up fight so you don’t take it away from them. </li></ul><ul><li>iPods and mp3s are becoming a big issue in school and work. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Affect in School <ul><li>I've see a lot of situations where the teacher has to take away cell phones and iPods because a kid was texting during class or was listening to music to loudly while the teacher is talking. </li></ul><ul><li>Kids are doing more poorly in school because they pay more attention to their electronic devices than the teacher. </li></ul><ul><li>When teachers try to take the away from the kids, the kids put up fight and get in trouble. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Temper tantrums <ul><li>Kids get so angry when their electronic devices are taken away from them. </li></ul><ul><li>They either throw a fit or end up fist fighting for them. They act very immature about the situation. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology has given most people a short fuse. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Laziness <ul><li>Most kids spend their time on the computer instead of playing outside or doing something constructive. </li></ul><ul><li>Because kids would rather mess around with their gadgets instead of socializing their becoming more bored or undetermined to do anything but stay inside and text or play on the computer. </li></ul><ul><li>There are brighter sides to having technology but the side effects in my opinion are a lot worse . </li></ul>
  9. 9. References <ul><li>Google pictures </li></ul><ul><li>People I have spoken to </li></ul><ul><li>Personal experiences </li></ul>
