Technology: Reducing the quality of Human Interaction

As the con, I am taking on the role of arguing the negative ramifications of technology (in use). Specifically in regards to the quality of human interaction. Note - I agree that technology is a tool and not an agent in which would be responsible for its actions. I'm discussing the usage of said technology only and the effects therein. For the purposes of this debate, human interaction will be defined as the effect in which we act and react to those around us. Unless an alternative agreed...

I personally feel ALL school age children should have phones. Ok, so you know if your a parent you want your children to be safe. Well imagine this, your son or daughter is getting out of basketball it's in a bad part of town. They see a creepy old man slowly walks towards them, the have no phone no way to contact you AND YOU ARE LATE. They ate scared and have no where to run or hide. You finally get there but him or her is gone. They were stolen never to be seen again, probably beaten and abus...

Social Media - A Good Thing or a Bad Thing?

Social Media - A Good Thing or a Bad Thing? Yes. The reason I think social media is good for kids is because it shows ways to express themselves, and is a good way for communication. Social media has made it possible for like minded individuals to discuss important topics, widen their personal knowledge and discover things they never knew before. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and others are a cost effective means of spreading the word and getting support. You might find your old pals...

Should 12 year olds have a Cell Phone?

Liyah.here
TheOpinionist

I think 12 year olds should have a cell phone. Because most kids, like me, walk home or ride the bus home/to school and pretty much need a phone. Say one day what if "Miss Sally Sue" woke up late and rushed to get out the house, and catch the bus. Her parents left the house already and she needs to get out the house. So about time Sally goes to the bus stop, the bus just left. So sally waits and see if another bus comes. But another bus doesn't come. So Sally takes out her phone, and calls her m...

Is Social Media helpful/useful?

Legend6321
Ssosme

In recent months and years, social media had been a cause of major controversy. This is a result of the conflict between two sides, privacy and publicity. These two sides have been gaining heat, especially in the eyes of the government and within the public. Social media is not useful and/or helpful because it lowers our personal ability to reason, socialize face-to-face, and takes away from precious time with family....
