4 BENEFITS OF TECHNOLOGY 1. ABLE TO PERFORM EVERYDAY TASKS FASTER 2. ABLE TO PROCESS INFORMATION, MANAGE $ AND KEEP RECORDS BETTER 3. HELPS PEOPLE GATHER INFORMATION, LEARN, ENJOY ENTERTAINMENT AND COMMUNICATE

5 DRAWBACKS OF TECHNOLOGY 1. HEALTH & DEVELOPMENT MAY BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED a. PHYSICAL INACTIVITY b. “COCOONING” =TOO MUCH TIME ALONE WITH A COMPUTER LEADING TO LONELINESS AND ISOLATION The net

6 DRAWBACKS OF TECHNOLOGY 2. DAMAGE TO THE ENVIRONMENT “OBSOLESCENCE” “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 PURCHASING MAY LEAD TO FINANCIAL CRISIS MAY LEAD TO FINANCIAL CRISIS

14 The Impact of Technology: Society 3 minute video clip – very small 3 minute video clip – very small 3 minute video clip – very small 3 minute video clip – very small Listen for the benefits and negatives of technology at work. Listen for the benefits and negatives of technology at work.

15 Positive Effects of Workplace Tech What do you think? What do you think? Increased productivity Jobs are less labor intensive More flexibility in how and where you do your job Negative Effects of Workplace Tech What do you think? What 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. SOME CHANGES FOLLOW A PATTERN OVER TIME. TREND = A GENERAL DIRECTION OF CHANGE OVER A PERIOD OF 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? HOW DO WE PREDICT? 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 What was life like in the 1700’S in American - FARM LIFE WAS COMMON - FARM LIFE WAS COMMON - HARD, PHYSICAL LABOR - HARD, PHYSICAL LABOR - LARGE FAMILIES - EVERYONE PITCHED IN TO HELP IN ORDER TO PROVIDE FOR FAMILY NEEDS. - 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. TODAY’S FAMILIES ALSO SEEK TO PROVIDE FOR THE BASIC NEEDS IN SPITE OF RAPID CHANGE. What are the BASIC NEEDS of the family? What are the BASIC NEEDS of the family? Will this continue into the future? 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. ONE TYPE OF TREND INVOLVES THE CHANGES IN FAMILY PATTERNS. THIS CAN BE THE RESULT OF NEW TECHNOLOGY OR ITS USE, OR THIS CAN BE THE RESULT OF NEW TECHNOLOGY OR ITS USE, OR THIS CAN CAUSE A RIPPLE EFFECT IN SOCIETY. THIS CAN CAUSE A RIPPLE EFFECT IN SOCIETY.

24 Family Pattern Trends SINGLE PEOPLE -GROWING SINGLE PEOPLE -GROWING COUPLES - FEWER OR NO CHILDREN COUPLES - FEWER OR NO CHILDREN NUCLEAR FAMILIES (MOTHER & FATHER BOTH IN THE HOME) - LESS THAN 50% OF ALL NUCLEAR FAMILIES (MOTHER & FATHER BOTH IN THE HOME) - LESS THAN 50% OF ALL

25 Family Pattern Trends BLENDED FAMILIES - CAN BE THE RESULT OF HIGHER DIVORCE RATES SINGLE PARENT FAMILIES - FASTEST GROWING CATEGORY EXTENDED FAMILIES (OTHER RELATIVES LIVING IN YOUR HOME)

26 HOW WILL FAMILIES LOOK IN THE FUTURE?

45 "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 carbon
