Advantages And Disadvantages Of Technology
Technology is the application of scientific knowledge for achieving practical goals. It is a complex process that involves people, machines and resources.
The development of new technologies is typically a step-by-step process, sometimes referred to as ‘death valley’, wherein the earliest stages of an invention are generally unproven and require long periods of research and testing. These stages are designed to validate and develop the underlying concepts, gain a better understanding of how to implement the technology and test it against reality.
Improved Means Of Transportation: As a result of improved transportation, people and goods move across the globe more easily and efficiently. This is achieved through automobiles, trains, airplanes, motorbikes, roads, energy, information, materials and finance.
Increased Production: Businesses have been able to automate a variety of tasks using technology. This helps them to increase production and efficiency, resulting in higher profits.
Educating Students At Their Own Pace: The education system has also been revolutionized through the use of technology. The use of devices, AI-based tools, and AR/VR technologies allows students to learn at their own pace and enjoy the lessons more.
In the classroom, technology has helped students improve their learning capabilities and memorization skills. Moreover, they have been able to complete assignments and projects more quickly.
There are many advantages of using technology in the classroom and in business. However, the use of technology can also have its disadvantages. If not used correctly, it can cause harm to the environment and even the society.
