Technology can be defined as science or knowledge put into practical use to solve problems or invent useful tools. Computers, internet, cars are all technology. There systems seem very complex to people who know nothing about developing technology. Who ever wants to learn to develop technology must have one skill in particular, creativity.
Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity is a skill which is present in everyone naturally but to make it able for use and to make it better, one can learn. Creativity is important and it helps us in many fields of life. Imagination is the most important part of a creative person. One who does not have imagination can never be creative.
People may think that technology makes us more creative, but actually, technology is making us more and more unimaginative. Inventing new technology is very hard so I do not think anyone can make more than two types in their whole life. After people hear new kind of technology has been made, everyone, especially the rich people, want to have it. Some extremely rich ones do get them and then its only them and the technology.
Lets take the example of tablets. The first ever tablet came out in 2001. In past times, children played outside. They had morning walks, they had exercises, they had runs. Nowadays, children don’t even go play games like cricket, baseball and football outside because they have tablets. They can just play online games or video games. Why go out and tire yourself? It is not only making us unimaginative, but also lazy.
When technology was not being used this much, people bought their small kids books, of ABC and 123, and blocks to help them learn. But now people just hand them tablets, in which games like ‘Dave and Ava Learn and Play’, have been installed. All that the children have to do is click a few times on the screen and sometimes drag their finger across the screen and parents call that the ‘learning’. Not only will that make your children unimaginative and lazy, but also will be harmful for their eyes.
In the end I will conclude that technology makes people unimaginative and lazy and is harmful in other ways.
