The author of this week?s reading worries that technology is making it harder for us to connect with one another emotionally. He says: ?My daily use of technological communication has been shaping me into someone more likely to forget others.?
This week, we?d like you to consider all the ways we use technology socially and the author?s arguments about the effects. Then answer the following questions.
(1) First describe two positive effects of technology ? like cell phones, the internet, and social media ? on our social lives and our interactions with others. Please give specific examples of how you think use of technology can bring social positives, like increased empathy, understanding, or connection.
(2) Now describe two negative effects of technology on our social lives and interactions. Please give specific examples of how use of technology can lead to decreased empathy, understanding, or connection.
(3) The author says he is not ?anti-technology,? but he thinks technology has mostly negative effects on our ability to connect. Overall, do you think the effects of technology on our social lives and interactions are more positive OR more negative? Why?
