1 THE IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY FAMILIIES TODAYSECTION 3:1SKILLS FOR LIVINGSECTION 11-2
2 Objective: Evaluate the effects of existing technology on family resources and relationships 2. Explain that technology creates new economic opportunities andsocial benefits and, at the same time, produces new social problems.(MDTECHVSC Page 27)
4 BENEFITS OF TECHNOLOGY 1. ABLE TO PERFORM EVERYDAY TASKS FASTER2. ABLE TO PROCESS INFORMATION, MANAGE $ AND KEEP RECORDS BETTER3. HELPS PEOPLE GATHER INFORMATION, LEARN, ENJOY ENTERTAINMENT AND COMMUNICATE
5 DRAWBACKS OF TECHNOLOGY 1. HEALTH & DEVELOPMENT MAY BE ADVERSELY AFFECTEDPHYSICAL INACTIVITY“COCOONING” =TOO MUCH TIME ALONE WITH A COMPUTER LEADING TO LONELINESS AND ISOLATIONAFTER the suicide sceneThe net
6 DRAWBACKS OF TECHNOLOGY 2. DAMAGE TO THE ENVIRONMENT“OBSOLESCENCE”A STATE OF USELESSNESS.AS THIS TREND INCREASES DUE TO TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGES, THE RESULT IS A LOT OF TRASH.
7 DRAWBACKS OF TECHNOLOGY 3.TOO EASY TO SPEND VIA INSTANT ACCESS TO CASH AND CREDIT AND TO ONLINE PURCHASINGMAY LEAD TO FINANCIAL CRISIS
8 DRAWBACKS OF TECHNOLOGY Credit card debt more than doubled between 1990 & It further increased by 27% in 1998 (www.smartmoney.com)
9 DRAWBACKS OF TECHNOLOGY 4. TOO MUCH PRESSURE ON OTHER FAMILY RESOURCESTIME STRAINSMONEY STRAINS
10 DRAWBACKS OF TECHNOLOGY 5. PERSONAL PRIVACY MAY BE THREATENEDOnline Predator presentationWhen friend brings clothes to hotel – conversation regarding stolen identityThe net
11 DRAWBACKS OF TECHNOLOGY a. HIGH TECH EQUIPMENT DOES NOT ENCOURAGE FAMILY INTERACTIONb. CONSTANT COMPETITION FOR USE OF THE TECH AT HOMEc. FAMILY TIME IS REPLACED WITH INDIVIDUAL TIME SPENT WITH TECH6. FAMILY LIFE MAY BE THREATENED

14 The Impact of Technology: Society 3 minute video clip – very smallListen for the benefits and negatives of technology at work.Cheryldoughty c…The Impact of Technology:Society
15 Positive Effects of Workplace Tech What do you think?Increased productivityJobs are less labor intensiveMore flexibility in how and where you do your jobNegative Effects of Workplace TechWhat do you think?-People work longer hours, in part because the work is more portable-Employees are expected to be tech savvy and keep up-Dependent on the technology – it will fail
16 We have become victims of multi-tasking madness - the ability to juggle multiple thoughts, tasks and jobs. We place ourselves at risk by trying to drive while talking on our cell phones. We become captives of technology, waiting for data to download or transfer, micro-wave popcorn to pop, VCRs to rewind or waiting in line at drive-through restaurants while we fidget with our personal digital assistants.
18 Objective: Analyze several trends that will impact upon the use of technology in the home and family.
19 “AN AWARENESS OF TRENDS CAN HELP YOU BETTER PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE.” SOME CHANGES FOLLOW A PATTERN OVER TIME.TREND = A GENERAL DIRECTION OF CHANGE OVER A PERIOD OF TIME
20 WHAT WILL LIFE BE LIKE IN THE FUTURE? HOW DO WE PREDICT?2. Develop abilities to assess the impacts of technology (MDTECHVSC)Objective: The student will analyze several trends that will impact upon the use of technology in the home and family.
21 “STYLES AND CHOICES HAVE CHANGED, BUT THE BASIC NEEDS OF FAMILIES ARE NOT MUCH DIFFERENT THAN THEY WERE YEARS AGO.”What was life like in the 1700’S in American- FARM LIFE WAS COMMON- HARD, PHYSICAL LABOR- LARGE FAMILIES - EVERYONE PITCHED IN TO HELP IN ORDER TO PROVIDE FOR FAMILY NEEDS.
22 “THE BASIC NEEDS OF FAMILIES ARE NOT MUCH DIFFERENT THAN THEY WERE YEARS AGO.” TODAY’S FAMILIES ALSO SEEK TO PROVIDE FOR THE BASIC NEEDS IN SPITE OF RAPID CHANGE.What are the BASIC NEEDS of the family?Will this continue into the future?
23 AN AWARENESS OF TRENDS CAN HELP YOU BETTER PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE ONE TYPE OF TREND INVOLVES THE CHANGES IN FAMILY PATTERNS.THIS CAN BE THE RESULT OF NEW TECHNOLOGY OR ITS USE, ORTHIS CAN CAUSE A RIPPLE EFFECT IN SOCIETY.
24 Family Pattern Trends SINGLE PEOPLE -GROWING COUPLES - FEWER OR NO CHILDRENNUCLEAR FAMILIES (MOTHER & FATHER BOTH IN THE HOME) - LESS THAN 50% OF ALL
25 Family Pattern TrendsBLENDED FAMILIES - CAN BE THE RESULT OF HIGHER DIVORCE RATESSINGLE PARENT FAMILIES - FASTEST GROWING CATEGORYEXTENDED FAMILIES (OTHER RELATIVES LIVING IN YOUR HOME)
27 BABY BOOMERSA baby boomer is a person born between 1946 and 1964 in Australia, United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. Following World War II, these countries experienced an unusual spike in birth rates, a phenomenon commonly known as the baby boomBy the year 2030, the baby boomers will be ages 66—84 and make up about 20% of the total population
29 GENERATION Y A person born from about 1977-2001 Also known as the echo boomers, millennials, and The Net generationExpected to have a major impact on our societyExpected to want a high level of life balance between work and personal life. They will expect job flexibility with systems such as telecommuting.
30 TRENDS: THE AGING POPULATION For Americans born in 1900, the average life expectancy was just below 50 years.For Americans born in 1998 the average life expectancy is 77 years.
31 TRENDS: THE AGING POPULATION ON THE WHOLE, PEOPLE ARE LIVING LONGER THAN THEY USED TO.MEDICAL ADVANCESTHE CHANGE IN BIRTH RATESSAFER WORK AND COMMUNITY ENVIRONMENTSMORE MEDICAL SERVICES ARE NEEDED FOR THE AGING .

33 TREND: DECLINING FAMILY INCOME IT TAKES 2 AVERAGE INCOMES TODAY TO PROVIDE FOR A SIMILAR LIFESTYLE THAT COST 1 AVERAGE INCOME 40 YEARS AGO.
34 TREND: BOOMERANG CHILDREN Even though young adults today may prefer to live independently, they may not be able to afford to do so.Many entry level jobs today offer low wages yet housing costs have soared, which has put independent living out of reach for many young adults.(www.prb.org)
35 TREND: BOOMERANG CHILDREN Not only are they leaving home later, they are also more likely to return home - back into the role of a dependent.Currently 40% of young adults BOOMERANG.
36 TREND: COCOONINGLack of human interaction due to spending large amounts of time within your home via computer, TV and or the phone leads to a decline of social skills.
37 TREND: TELECOMMUNICATING Communication between home and work and school has opened up a world of working from another location.
38 TRENDS: THE CHANGING WORKPLACE YOU MAY SEE CERTAIN JOBS DISAPPEAR IN YOUR LIFETIME DUE TO CHANGES IN SOCIETY.Disappearing jobs – bank tellers, typists, telephone operators, dishwashersYOU MAY NEED TO RETOOL FOR SEVERAL DIFFERENT JOBS IN YOUR LIFETIME.SERVICE INDUSTRIES ARE GROWING.
39 TREND: DECLINING FAMILY INCOME IT TAKES 2 AVERAGE INCOMES TODAY TO PROVIDE FOR A SIMILAR LIFESTYLE THAT COST 1 AVERAGE INCOME 40 YEARS AGO.
40 TREND: DUAL - INCOME FAMILIES THIS TREND CREATES A BIGGER DEMAND FOR SERVICES SUCH AS CHILD CARE AND FOOD PREPARATION.
41 TREND: A GLOBAL WORKPLACE Improved communication and transportation have linked the far ends of the earth. Goods are sold in countries other than where they originate. People from foreign soil move to own businesses and to work.
42 TREND: LIFELONG EDUCATION People of all ages are seeking education - some online.Many people will need retraining if their jobs are eliminated.Returning to school can put pressures on the daily lifestyle, but the benefits are usually worth it.
43 TREND: AUTOMATED HOUSES “Smart House” technology in whole or in part is a trend of the future.
44 So what’s the deal with home automation So what’s the deal with home automation? We know you’ve heard a lot of things over the years. Some people are still trying to overcomplicate home automation with buzzwords and vaporware. We think it’s simple: coordinating security, temperature and lighting for comfort, convenience and safety. Yes – you can connect it to the web and touch screens and very expensive other stuff if you want – but you have to start with the basics, and that’s why we’re here. HAI is good with the grunt work of security, lighting and temperature control.
45 FACT"The warming trend in global-mean surface temperature observations during the past 20 years is undoubtedly real and is substantially greater than the average rate of warming during the twentieth century.” The most important action we can take to slow global warming is: Reduce emissions of heat-trapping gases. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions can be done by: Increasing energy efficiency standards Encouraging the use of renewable energy sources (such as wind and solar power) Protecting and restoring forests, which serve as important storehouses of carbonSource: National Academy of Sciences, 2000 Reconciling Observations of Global Temperature Change.Shirley Niemeyer, Ph.D. Professor Carolyn Turner, Ph.D.University of Nebraska-Lincoln North Carolina A & THousing & Environment Associate Dean for ResearchTherefore
