What are the positive effects of technology?
Short answer: Technology positively effects us by making tasks easier. Long answer: Technology can help people by: 1. Spreading information 2. Doing some things faster than… possible by humans (for example, calculators) 3. Doing things more precise than possible by humans (robots used in surgery) 4. Making it less expensive to do normally expensive tasks 5. Finding enjoyment (sometimes)
The positive effect of technology on the environment is that it has made life a lot easier and effective through various types of technology. The disadvantage of technolog…y on environment is that it has led to more cases of pollution.
People can access pictures and documents from their homes even if they don't have the references in paper format. Presentations, classes, and meetings can be shown/held remote…ly. Questions can be asked electronically. People in rural communities can now get a degree from a University without having to uproot their lives. Students can use vast informational resources from their own homes. More people are learning on demand... want to know something, find it out... now. In a lot of ways, the anonymity of the online community is a great equalizer. Students are bullied and picked on less, and are less reluctant to ask questions online. A twelve-year-old and a 30-year-old can be equals in a classroom setting in most ways that matter for learning to take place. Handicapped students get treated fairly. No one laughs at the fat kid. No one makes faces because one of the kids has crooked teeth, or dresses funny, or has bruises on her face. ... In other ways, of course, anonymity removes some peoples inhibitions and some people are ruder online than they would ever be in person. ... there are definitely trade-offs... but the fact that some people interact, where they wouldn't even have a chance to, or would be too ashamed to, in "real" life, makes it a *huge* thing for education. In many cases, having to type answers makes people think about them more. Not always, but often, you will get more thoughtful responses online. Even in face-to-face classrooms, the advent of data projectors and advanced video equipment makes the possibilities of the classroom expand. Cutting-edge "viral" education can be injected into even the most mundane classes... because our world is infused with technology. Almost all students have cell phones. If you put clues in a lecture, a handout, or a presentation, and lead students to a website or ask them to text something... many will, and it will spread outside the class. Viral education, if used well, will get students outside your class to come and learn something too. As with almost anything, technology can be used for good *or* evil... it is neither of those things in itself, by itself. If we use technology to advance education, to spread it, and use it in appropriate ways... it is a powerful, powerful tool. *so* much more than moving a 50-year old lecture to powerpoint... so, so much more...
You can sum up both things in one word: Knowledge. Knowledge can either be good or bad, because there are some things that you would prefer to ignore, "ignorance is blessing…". However, science has given men and nature more benefits than negative effects. *Negative Effects: -Deforestation -Pollution -Animal Suffering (in animal testing) -Biological weapons -Genetically altered foods *Positive Effects: -Cures to unknown diseases -Better quality foods -Better manufacturing processes -Better understanding of the world -Better communication (internet, fiber optics, etc)
Computer technology allows us to do anything we need to a lot easier. The internet allows us to search for answers that we wouldn't know. Computers themselves can be use…d to teach us other languages.
We have a positive effect on communication technology due to the increase in computers and cell phones in everyday households. Very few are unplugged, which means you get info…rmation at any time. The down side of this is you aren't unplugged and can get burned out from to much information. With all the information rolling around at our fingertips we should be able to make up to date decisions with a good source of updated info. As well as troubleshooting everyday problems by googling the problem and you have a large amount of answers available.
The positive effect is that it accelerates what one person can do.(like a car =]) The negative effect is that that's not always a good thing and can sometimes hurt society. Wi…th tech you can make one person do the work of 100's or 1000's but that could also put 100's or 1000's out of a job. With tech, you can protect yourself by encrypting all your transmissions, however it makes it that much easier for someone to protect truly harmful transmissions like child p orn or criminal activity. Overall, and in a modern sense, tech decentralizes the power and control over the media and distributes it to regular people creating a more democratic society. In the same way, it destabilizes society by challenging the authority of institutions within that society who need to centralize power to maintain that control that does provide stability. However, the emergence of tech will show that old institutions are no longer needed. Think, CNN/major music labels being laid waste in the wake of blogging and file sharing. Hope that helps.
Some positive effects of technology has had on humans were some including new medical discoveries, sex changes, cancer preventing drugs, some lessening of the racism to the ga…y and lesbian people and finally the fact that more faster ways of travel have been developed.
Modern technology has changed the way many companies do business. Video and Web Conferencing for instance has helped companies remove geographical barriers and given them the …opportunity to reach out to employees and clients throughout the world. In today's economy it has helped companies reduce the cost of travel allowing them to meet as often as they would like without having to worry about finding the budget for it. Modern technology helps companies reduce their carbon footprint and become green, due to the fact that almost anything can be done from a computer.
The positive effects are personal properties. The negative effects are pollution and global warming.
Information technology will speed up everything. The only negative of it when people become so dependent to it that it can not move with it.
they are all positive. less work
Technology allows teachers to create rich educational experiences for students. They can incorporate multimedia into their teaching plans in order to reach different learn…ers.
One of the positive impacts of technology on music is that it allows music to be heard by anyone in just one click. Also with technology you can listen to music anywhere a…nd anytime you want.
It will give you AIDS and Cause World War 5
Positive factors are reduced time in acquiring information/free sharing of knowledge/no virtual barriers of distance and main negative effect is wrong information freely a…vailable.
ife extension is a controversial topic; many people oppose it due to fear of overpopulation and effects on society. Religious people are no more likely to oppose life exte…nsion than the unaffiliated, though some variation exists between religious denominations. Blacks and Hispanics are more likely to support life extension than white people.Biogerontologist counters the overpopulation critique by pointing out that the therapy could postpone or eliminate menopause, allowing women to space out their pregnancies over more years and thus decreasing the yearly population growth rate.A Spring 2013 pew research poll in the United States found that 38% of Americans would want life extension treatments, and 56% would reject it. However it also found that 68% believed most people would want it and that only 4 percent consider an "ideal lifespan" to be more than 120 years.
