Indeed, last Friday, a young girl of 12 years t dtention place after having tent dempoisonner his mother twice with water bleach because that Last had confiscated her iPhone. We know young people full of spontaneity, but join MILKY intend crossing the Cape of prmditation dun murder, and most importantly his mother, after stre confiscated his iPhone, it soulve a veritable problem. To understand the depth of the phenomenon among young people in particular, it should danalyser intrinsques the sources of addiction to new technologies.
The dependence on phones and other technology is not new. Several entities have already spoken and studies have t dj menes for several years. Already in 2013, IDC conducted a study on 7000 gs 18 Americans 44 and possdant an Android smartphone or iPhone. Through this study, it was observed in four out of five people on the phone attachment marked by vrification the phone within fifteen minutes after the alarm clock premires. In a recent study by mene lUniversit of Derby in the United States and published it a few days ago, it appears also that the more you use your smartphone, the more you your hitch. This finding is from dune leads study on adults is also vrifi for young people.
However, quen Gnral it should be emphasized, this influence or that addiction is not premium cre first by phone se lquipement or third parties, but rather by the applications and services available from these terminals. Indeed, using the phone lon has access a range of services such as games, social networks, applications, emails It is the latter that will stir perpetually thirsty to stay connected on the phone among users in general and young people in particular, widening the furrows of laddiction. This addiction if it is poorly mastered becomes a lever dappui for any drive.
In principle, phones users should be able to make sense of things simposant limits to avoid any overflow solutions. But this is not always the case especially among young people and even adults too little risk soupsent read how to use these equipments. Thats why LATL a denseignants union in Northern Ireland, said to talk about the problem of dependence of the young people we believe that the Minister of lducation must take steps to make them more aware of the problems the parents read these new technologies.
Speaking of technology requires glimpse here every matriels equipments and current software which utiliss bad, could have consequences on insouponnes evil spirits strengthened. Last month, for example, reported The Telegraph Magazine, a Chinese blow Stait young hand to his problem rgler daddiction internet. We agree that these are extreme and rare cases. FURTHER most common phenomena laddiction lilies are also up. Examples are the development of characters asocial youth or children, lack of concentration or The upturn in distraction.
This is to avoid this kind of dconvenues some gurus have lIT prfr restrict laccs these technologies their children. Steve Jobs, for his part, Nick Bilton dclarait face during dun interview in 2010 that her children never used navaient diPad. DAdd and we limit the use of new technology home. There is no Steve Job who is aware of the dangers that exposs children. Evan Williams, one of the founders of Twitter also stated there was a few years, his two young boys do not have diPad but rather books that they can read nimporte when.
On hearing these very persons influential in the world of technology, lon tent would be to outlaw use of new technologies by them. But is this the best solution?
this, even if the opinions are quite mixed, lon can also take that he isnt only bad things rsultent of the use of these technologies. This is what also think Mark Montgomery, a teacher from the North and Lirlande member LATL, claiming at lanne Last dune conference that the same way we can use a brick to break a window or build a home, digital technology can be used wisely or not, and teachers can and should daider their pupils make positive choices so they have positive experiences.
This address is made in priority to teachers, concerns far each user that doing more attention can help the less gs capitalize a positive way how to use these devices numriques.
