Is Technology Raising our Kids? Marc Kenny Univ 111 November 17 th 2014
Introduction As time goes on, technology use in younger children under the age of 10 is more common today than ever before. What types of technology do kids use?
Claim In today’s society, technology negatively affects the younger generation’s upbringing and limits their external experiences.
Supporting Ideas Technology diminishes children’s ability to produce face-to-face communication. Technology hinders kids from enjoying the simple things in life.
Counterargument Although technology use is becoming more traditional in family homes, however children should learn their alphabets, numbers, and how to write before learning how to use devices such as an IPad.
Conclusion Parent’s view Can technology use at a younger age affect behavior patterns and cause addiction at a younger age?
