This so called digital nation is simply a lazy parents excuse for parenting. Instead of interacting with their child, they plug them in. Instead of reading with them, they plug them in. There is no better interaction than that of a human being. Kids don't know how to play anymore! They can't socialize, problem solve or delve deeper into any meaningful topic because they have become surface dwellers, content to stop learning when they have received their answer. Get them outside! Unplug and talk to each other.
Kids education could be low and in the future they could end up with nothing. It could be bad for there health because we all need vitamin c and they need to be active or they'll be fat and lazy. Your child could be bullied at school for there shape and size Im not saying we have to put technology down but parents need to act up and and give there child a limited of time on the computer. They could have enough time to do everything.
Yes,technology has destroyed the playground.In the olden days children played on the playground and most of their play involved large amounts of imagination.Nowadays kids spend very little time outside and have little use for imagination because video games offer few opportunities for people to use their own thought processes to entertain themselves.
Technology is amazing and wonderful, but there are some drawbacks. One of them is that more kids are not going outside to play and have a good time but are staying home to play video games. It causes playgrounds to not be used as often and therefore not funded as much.
Technology has changed the way kids play and it has had a negative effect on traditional children's games. Children are now encouraged to play alone in front of a computer screen rather than interacting with kids their own age. Real games, unlike video games, can teach kids about teamwork and leadership.
Technology has destroyed the play ground. Because of the screens that children are put in front of for ours at a time, they seem to no longer know what the sun looks like or what playing outside it. They no longer want to leave their houses, instead using their screens all day.
Technology has not destroyed the playground. This is because of the fact that people still find playgrounds fun to use. People still use playgrounds. People use technology a lot, but most people who are of the age to use a playground won't be using technology anyway, and will likely still use a playground.
I do not believe technology has harmed the American playground at all. Our local playgrounds are far better now, then they were when I was a young child. Each playground has a variety of items to climb and traverse and each playground pretty much has a set of swings and a slide, usually more.
It is obvious that technology has not "destroyed" the play time of kids. Most playground time is during recess in elementary school, where cell phones and electronic devices are not allowed. Children young enough to still enjoy playing on the playground are also usually too young to own cell phones.
