Should we use iPads as much? Some scientists think we should. Eg: "They will thus develop the sense of balance that permits them to be a part of the real and electronic worlds-but also to stand apart from them.

From my understanding of the debate I will be arguing for the fact that we should not use electronics that much?
Electronics are an amazing thing but at the same time it distances us from our surrounding and the people around us.

Firstly. I want a reference for that quote. Secondly. We are debating electronics in general. As you notice social platforms like facebook and platforms like youtube start becoming more and more popular. With it comes downfall of our humanity in a sense.
Electronics are an amazing thing connecting us with friends and family but sometimes it just goes too far. We surround ourselves with electronics. With TV with so many things just to keep our mind busy. Our habit of stopping and thinking starts to become less and less out of fear of being bored or out of a fear to face reality.
It would be amazing to have these two worlds apart but that isn't the case right now. These two worlds are slowly becoming one.

First, The quote came from TECHNOS. Second, it can help teach how to do math and other subjects.

'Second, it can help teacxh how to do math and other subjects'

Yes good sir or madam, you are very correct on this point. However accepting electronics 100&ly into our life just because of one reason that you provided doesn't mean we should do so however. Electronics is not the only thing that teaches us math and I could argue that it even dumbs us down in math when we start to use calculators more and more. Even for the slightest problems where it requires us to think. We become so lazy that we want everything else to do the thinking for us.

'Other subjects'

It could help us with other subjects. However you failed to mention which subjects. It could very much teach us but it is not necessesary. And that's what we are arguing for wether or not we should use electronics that much. Based on the arguments you portray we don't need electronics that much to be honest.

I am arguing for electronics used as an entertainment purpouse.
Posted by MichaelPP 2 years ago

No, I'm not saying that. But that's what I am trying to argue for. Computers can be fun and all but quite a lot of people either spend too much time on them or put too much value in the things in their life.

Are you saying that it is a bad thing to use anything with a circuit board, such as an air conditioner or an X-Ray machine? If you are talking about the things that people get addicted to like computers or video games, then no, we shouldn't use them all the time, but they are a fun way for people now a days to pass some free time or have fun with friends.

You are correct Johnson. We do not have to accept it because it is already in our life.

Just telling, I think that in the future, even if electronics have defaults like MichaelPP said, they will be everywhere and we must accept electronics in our daily life.
