Many people read about other cultures but when we don’t we developed more ignorance and therefore cultures can be lost and forgotten. The picture shows that the more advanced we become, the more uncivilized we come as well. As for phones, we have access to everything but we choose it to look at ridiculous pictures and jokes. We use our creations for dumb things instead of its actual purpose.
I like your ideas.
I too think some of us use our technology for pointless things.
I agree society has become lazy.
I agree that cultures can be lost due to ignorance.
All of the quotes deal with today’s society and how we function as humans by deals of electronics taking over. The illustrations portray that we seem to care more about our own devices than the outside world and what’s going on in person. Our advanced technology is becoming destructive to ourselves.
I agree that we as a society have become distracted and need to stop and smell the roses.
I feel like they all mean the times are changing. Some people might think it’s for the worst. People don’t like it and some people think it’s great and that technology should be a big part of our lives.
I agree that times are definitely changing, but the question is, is it for the good?
Yea times are definitely changing.
I agree that times are changing. Some ways are good and some are bad, in my opinion.
I like what you wrote.
I agree, good perspective.
The picture is pretty eye opening. As far as the quote, you can’t really just force people to not read. The screenshot is realistic too. We have access to so much, and what do we do? We get on our phones to research for our homework and end up looking at memes or social media. Completely procrastinating and wasting our time. I use my phone to contact people.
I agree, we do have access to a lot of new things.
I think this shows how much our new generation is shaped around phones and internet. Prior generations would have never dreamed of today’s technology. I think these quotes say that life has become to easy for people.
I agree, I wonder how our generation would react to not having any of the technology we have.
I agree. I think it’s crazy to imagine what kind of technology is going to develop over the next decade, or the next century.
We are so used to it we are taking it for granted
All three of these components lead the the idea that our society is relying and technology. We started with finding ways to survive with the bare minimum and working for a good life. Now we are starting to be less active and focus our lives on a screen rather than real things.
I agree we focus on a screen to much.
Our society has definitely gone down in self reliability.
I agree that with new advancements for an “easier life” we are becoming more lazy and demanding.
We do need to focus on other things.
Our lives would become to easy and we would just rely on technology.
I like how simple you put it.
The similarities are that as we progressed in life. Thing get to easy and we rely on technology.
I like the way you put that.
I think the quote is referring to the 21 century as in we all have access to the same material but only a few of us use it to our advantage. All of them are describing how lazy our generation is and what we do with our time. They critique us by saying we have access to all the resources we need but we still chose to watch Netflix, You Tube, and memes.
I like how you said we are becoming lazy, I agree.
I think that it was interesting that you talked about how we have so many resources but don’t always use them.
I abloslitly agree
The quote shows that we go further than is necessary. We overreact.. The photo shows that we have evolved, but it targets computers as something negative, when really I think we have advanced because of them. The screenshot shows that we use technology for dumb things. We aren’t using it to it’s full potential, and as a result we miss lots of learning opportunities.
I agree with what you said.
We are not using technology to its full potential however we are still doing things that would not be dreamed of without it
The quote, screenshot and picture all talk about the advancement of technology and the difference in the society today. All three state there feeling of how humans have changed there way of life. They state that our society rely on technology and that we have moved away from hands on labor.
I agree that we as humans aren’t as hands on as we used to be.
Honestly if someone tells me not to read a book I will go maybe not read it but find out what it’s about. For the picture I think that people are spending too much time on electronics but I think that the evolution isn’t real so I don’t know how to take that. I think that people in the 50’s had it good, I think that it would be fun. I think that it would be hard to explain a lot of things that we have today.
The 50’s do sound fun!!!!! Time travel anybody?
The quote explains how, without books and writings, cultures would be forgotten and lost throughout history. The screenshot shows how, even with the world at our fingertips, we use this opportunity to do useless things instead of bettering our society.
The quote is saying how easy it is to get people to stop reading books considering how prevalent technology is today also we are getting more persuasive everyday making it easy to sway decisions that are made by others. The screenshot explains how advanced we’ve become but also how lazy and easily interested we are. The picture depicts how we had a time in our lives when we were self reliable and how we’ve gone down since them. It is so easy now to have people and robots no less to do our jobs for us.
It is interesting how easily distracted we are now. It is something that I really can tell when in, for example, summer I live in the internet and cannot keep a thought in my head for more than a minute
A similarity between the three is that they all relate to how advanced we’ve become. We once didn’t have things such as Google and cell phones. If we wanted information, we had to look for it ourselves.
That’s true, we did have to look for information ourselves.
Sometimes we can misuse the technology that we have. Some similarities with all of these articles is that they all connect to the idea of how we can be misusing our technology. They also share the idea of how we have changed so much in so little time.
Our ancestors have worked very hard to achieve what they have but when it comes to us, it seems that we rely on the hard work of others. We do amazing things as a population but the average individual is rather pathetic in the terms of work. I am not saying that it is easier today I am just saying that the individual doesn’t have to work as hard to survive which could be seen as a weakness in our society through the eyes of a person that lived a long time ago.
The most difficult thing to understand would be probably the tech like phones and computers. It would be so different from there life back in 1950. We have access anything in the world with the tap of a button
Just gonna point out, that computer is way out of date. If you gave someone from the past a phone, they would probably use it to learn some stuff. In our day, we mainly use our phones for entertainment (teenagers especially). Instagram, Tiktok, social media, communication, games......... We have all this information at our hands that we ignore. We should all try to learn something new once in a while instead of watching cats make fools out of themselves.
Very true. And funny
Even though human kind is becoming more technologically advanced, we are growing farther apart as a society. No one really talks to each other and we take our knowledge for granted. Many social skills are lost and people don’t seek out education.
Everyone and everything around us is changing. People have changed, culture has changed, technology has also changed. Some of it is a good thing and some of it is not in the best way.
I would say that the meaning behind these three things is to maybe criticize our culture nowadays. Some similarities between these three show how we have differed strongly from how things used to be. The critique they give our society is that maybe we need to stop looking at phones and computers and we should look at books and real things that we can touch.
These two picture all emphasize how technology is bigger than ever and is still growing fast. Some people are scared of this saying that it will take over books and make us lazy and less educatated. Kinda reminds me about the Videogames cause Violece type of deal. Well some of this may be true, it is also a very good thing as well. People who didn’t grow up in this generation may not be accustomed to this new culture, and consider it ruining culture because the one they grew up in may be fading.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
