Nowadays technology has turned out to be a need to everyone and everyone else in the whole world. Letters through mail are no longer in use, newspapers, and bicycles either. People started to forget about these significant things, because in their current life they cannot imagine live without technology. There is advantage and disadvantage about having their life depend on computers and PDA devices. The access to an advanced technology shows people are more efficient, fast and easier to achieve their goals. But on the other hand, the disadvantage about this is that a human being is no longer capable of doing and thinking for itself. If a computer breaks, system crashes and machine do not work people are hands tied up until everything is recovered.
The great achievements of technology have made incredible communication media. Traveling to another country for a work meeting or meet a new member of the family is no longer needed. Now, people are doing video conferencing and chatting to communicate with their friends, family and work. However, if necessary to communicate personally with someone who is not in the same place where you are, technology has created an efficient way to travel from one point to another in a fast way. They have created airplanes and trains which have reduced time between cities and countries.
Overall technology has created a tremendous advance in communication. For example, a teacher is not any more grading test and homework by pencil, now computers and programs are doing it for them. Most of the time students and teachers no longer read books to increase their knowledge. Why? Because they have access to the Internet, Internet gives them all data about a specific subject. Teachers do not interact with students anymore. Now, technology has created robots, robots that most of the times are referred by their own professor. The robots are able to answer much of their academically questions but not a personal point of view, that in some point students need it. In addition, technology is great and amazing but it will always have its pros and cons. — Mariela Herrera
