Computers and Children

Boon or bane

Boon:

1. The technology savvy children of today have accepted the computer as an integral part of their lives.

2. With the help of computers and internet, it is now much easier for children to access information of all sorts.

3. With the help of computers, education has become interesting. Children can now search any topic, for example science or social studies, under the sky with the help of search engines like Google and Yahoo.

4. Children learn new things faster and are up to date with the latest happenings around the globe.

5. E-learning is the latest trend these days. Various educational portals have come up. The purpose is to help children in their education.

Bane:

1. Computer is a machine that makes everything on the Internet so easily accessible that it is difficult to keep children away from things they are not supposed to know at a certain age.

2. Children spend much time in playing games or social networking rather than their education and learning.

3. As everything is just one click away, children are becoming lazy and have lost the habit of manually referring to books or even dictionary.

4. They like to spend much time on the computer rather than playing outdoor games. They do social networking only on the Internet rather than going out and playing with friends.

5. The new disease on the computer or to say Internet is the ‘virtual world’. It is a computer-based simulated environment. A user takes an avatar and lives it virtually on the computer. It has its own negative effects, the user starts losing grip on the real world.

According to me the computer is boon to mankind. People are helpless without computer. Today it is the employments of millions of people. Computer is the greatest invention on earth especially for students. In fact, students and teachers are encouraged to use Information and Communication technology.It connects everyone in world.We can communicate with each other. The computer has made everybody's life easier.According to the recent research kids play online games regularly have better reaction time, visual activity and dexterity than kids who do not playgames on computer. Games help children to identify things in a faster way, to develop skills in sport and business. Computer considered as Machinery God , is an electronic device that reduces human laborious effort.In this 21st century,computer can be known by the name of next human brain.The invention of computer made human life much easier,faster and comfortable.Computer is regarded as one of the greatest achievements made by Scientist till now.Computer ,an electronic device, which has made life easier and comfortable is today surrounded with many questions of threats .Whether Computers are helping us or creating problem to us is matter of discussion.This is a topic to be put forward in the mass discussion.No doubt,the use of computer has lowered human labor lots and lots The work which required much time before can now be done simply within fraction of seconds.This is one of the main cons of computers.Sitting in a room and controlling world has now become possible due to discovery of computers.Communication has become possible due to internet.Information can be easily gained through internet.Globalizationhas become possible due to computers.
