Does technology distract us too much from the task at hand?

  • Technology is too distracting.

    Because “‘In a recent book, Professor Rosen of California State University, Dominguez Hills conducted a study of high school students to determine how technological distractions affected their study habits. He discovered that students could concentrate for an average of a measly three minutes at a stretch. The major culprit behind their lack of focus? Technology. Students who tended to “multitask” (or, really, to change tasks frequently) or to check Facebook even once during the 15-minutes they were monitored were likely to be poor students. Students reported that even without the constant reminders provided by notification lights and sounds, they were internally preoccupied with whether anyone was trying to get in touch with them or commenting on their statuses,” Says Liz Soltan

  • Yes i think it does

    How many times have you opened your computer, thinking to yourself “I am going to finish my French homework now!” But have ended up playing a computer game? How many times have you lied to your mother when she asks, “Are you doing your homework?” And you reply “Yes, mom!” but you are secretly watching Netflix on your screen? Sadly, for most of us, the answer is yes to both questions; we have done this many times. This proves that technology distracts us.

  • Technology take over

    Technology is great but people use it for silly things. If you ask a teenager to clean their room do you think they will do it right away without question? They might, but most might say one second or in a bit and go back to their smart phones. What about homework does that get done straight away with no trouble? Or is it watch tv, text a friend, go on social media, and then maybe if there is time do homework. Everyone needs to take a good look at society and see how we live our lives and the choices we make.

  • Technology distracts us.

    I know that the article states that teenagers and children are of the primary distractees, however, growing up I have found that my parents do it as well. You don't know how mad it makes me to be trying to carry on a decent conversation, or having to be somewhere at a specific time if your parents say, "hold on a minute, let me finish this level of candy crush!" 20 minutes later...

  • Too much technology

    So many people get in trouble on social media nowadays because people cannot get their faces out of a screen! Why do you think kids are more than pissed when parents take their phone away?! Kids get distracted and in school they are failing because they were up till midnight on Instagram, Kik or Facebook and texting.

  • Family distraction is also a growing issue.

    How often have you finished a work day to come home, eat dinner, and then proceed to sit on your couch next to your spouse just to stare blankly into a light filled screen. I have personally noticed that in many social situations, individual people are more involved in their addiction to social media than they are with actually being social. Interpersonal communication is more than simply passing information back and forth via a new means of techno gadget. It involves much more subconscious thought such as: reading facial expressions, listening for inflections in tone of voice, and being aware of one's posture. All of these aspects are lost with the use of even the most advanced technology. This, in my opinion, is why many young adults seem to have lost the ability to maintain intimate and trusting relationships with each other. In conclusion, technology not only distracts us from making time for our families, but also removes the face-to-face interaction. This can be evidenced by returning soldiers, sailors, and marines who may have had a phone or internet access while being mobilized 11 months. Nearly indefinitely, even though they may have been in steady contact with their loved ones, these military vets have much difficulty re-connecting. Unfortunately, veterans do not have a choice, as technology is one of their only means of communication. For the average American however, technology can be a detrimental to close family relationships.

  • Very Much So

    Even if it's something that's kept the world to evolve, it's still a huge distraction. People can't even pay attention for a second without having to see if they've missed a text or some status posted from someone. The world could live better if there were limited uses of these

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

  • No. Never.Tech is good=-)

    Technology would never distract us because one, it helps us with work that needs to be done and when it helps it also teaches us about things you have never thought about. Tech is a big fascinating world but also if there was no tech , there would be no tools no electrical appliances, no work. People think that "average" teenage girls would be onpho es all day but it probably helps them socialize. So don't go around saying get off the phone or go do some shoveling instead of schoolwork 'cause tech rulez

  • No: Technology Does Not Distract Us From the Task at Hand

    When we realize that technology in the form of smart phones, instant messengers, and email are creating a wholly new, technological environment, then we understand that technology is not distracting us so much as it is transforming us. We are living in a high tech bubble, and the "task at hand" for most people is to keep that tech bubble running. Indeed we are being separated from the natural world, but that is precisely the outcome of both our jobs and our gadgets. Technology may shorten our attention spans, but it is making us more adapted to its own logic.

  • Technology continues to push us forward

    We all live in an ever changing world and technology continues to push us further and further. Technology does not distract us, but keeps us focused on evolving ourselves and our processes to become even more productive and making the processes more efficient. Technology keeps us focused and driven to move forward.
