    Do you think that modern technology has greatly destroyed relations in homes, schools, churches etc?

    I wrote this question after reading a hub from Jackie Lynnley it spoke about how we were then and how we are now. Technology was one of the thoughts on my mind that has destroyed a lot of relationships. Children no longer want to play out door games, couples are to busy on Facebook or tweeting to make time for their partner. People are phony or tablet "iPad" conscious more than getting to know God or draw closer to Him. Children have no time for their parents because they are on their Samsung S5 and vice versa etc. I'd like to hear if you share the same view or similar.

    Yes, I do believe modern technology has damaged a lot of things like education for children, relationships between people, people become obese because people just sit in front of the T.V. or laptops or Desktops. People don't talk face to face anymore instead they chat on Facebook or text or email each other or Skype one another. Children no longer play outside in the fresh air, they are in their rooms playing Nintendo games or other internet games instead of doing their homework. The children shut their doors and can't hear their parents calling them for meals or something. We become introverts because once we shut that front door, we just sit in front of our Desktops or laptops and don't socialise no more.

    But on the plus side technology had made things easier to communicate to other people even from the other side of the world. So it is not all bad but I still think technology has damaged relationships of people.

    I think it's still too early to gauge the impact of technology on youth. It's still incredibly new and most trends tend to spike in use before leveling out into everyday items. Desktop computers, for example, were once the source of all the dangerous chat rooms, viruses and dot-com booms. Yet now they're everyday business machines. Most people are concerned about the mobile devices being distractions, not desktops. It will be interesting to see how all these gimmicky devices settle in for the foreseeable future.

    Having said that, it is incredibly annoying when you're trying to have a conversation with someone and they're only half listening because they're on their phone. I would be happy to see that trend go away.

    I wholeheartedly disagree with this argument. Coming from the education technology sector, I'd have to say that technology has further enhanced education in the classroom. This proves for a better multimedia learning experience not just for the students that are being taught, but much easier on the teachers who teach.

    If you put the correct spin on current technology (such as Facebook) and lessons that can be learned, it will always have a positive learning outcome. Twitter can be also used as a teacher tool.

    Separating church and education is another topic. It is not the school that teaches students religion. It is not the purpose of school unless it's a school that is specifically catholic, etc.....other than that, it's the parent's who should teach religion to their children along with the church. NOT a school's job to do so. 

    And, if this is a church school, then there are an abundance of interactive apps available (Bible apps, etc.) that will greatly enhance learning in children.

    Children do have time for their parents and siblings. It's a matter of how parent's control the technology and the time their kids have with them. Simply giving them a device and shutting them up is not the answer. Parent's have to set limits.

    Jaydawg i myself disagree with you first to begin no one is arguing here. I use modern technology i know it has many goods and as well as many bads. If it wasn't for it i wouldn't be able to even respond to you right away. However we are solely dealing with what it has also done....

    #9 Many men lost their wives through the internet on those same sex sites and vice versa.

    #10. Some lost their lives also

    As the saying goes satan don't give us nothing for nothing. This is his kingdom.

    #2. Yes we ALL know that technology has enhanced teaching uh huh but let me ask you this do children put the effort into their home-work like in the days when it had no internet ?. When we had to go to the library and research etc? I am sure NOT. Y? because all they simply do is copy and paste and plagiarize other people's hard work.

    #3. They hardly use their thinking faculties y? because oh dear Jaydawg there is GOOGLE who does all their thinking for them. Oh thank God for google by the way.

    #4. Facebook has it's good and bad just like everything is what you use it for most use it for the negativity, to look for man or women to mind people's business etc.

    #5.If they teach those little brats a little more about God than about what app to download or upload on tablet etc. They will be better children and not grow up to be morons as some untrained ones are.

    #6. It's the same God that gives them breath to go from day to day so why throw him out of the schools? Not even a little prayer in some schools,

    #7. Any honest parent will say kids spend more time on a computer, phone or tablet than they do with their own sibblings and their parents.

    #8. Pornography is rampant on the net you can be on a normal site and it just pops up for you to click. Children are expose to it even if they are under 18yrs all they have to do is just put an older age and Bam they have access to sexual contents. It has corrupted many, even Skype is good but can be used as a dirty medium alot of teens use this now as prostitution is now in the home. Please don't mention parental control , because these smart alexs knows how to work the system.

    #9 . Many men lost their wives on these same internet sex sites and vice versa, some even lost their lives. It also contributes to D.I.V.O.R.C.E.S

      Your point #5 is so "Christian", so charitable. Then again, it does make very clear what you really think not only about children, but about those who (apparently in your estimation) are neither Christian nor worthy.

      It surely is an argument that you did pose. Because your comments are implicating God. #6 especially. It's not a schools job to teach religion. Get this right. If so, send your child to a church school or have parents teach them.

    Some thoughts:

    KIds do, in fact, still play outside. They are everywhere---parks and playgrounds are full of kids doing what we did 50+ years ago. To suggest that playing outside is a thing of the past is just plain nonsense.

    Couples communicate with each other on social media. Many people communicate with friends and family on social media. Technology does not destroy relationships. People destroy relationships.

    I have no idea how to respond to people being "phoney" or lacking an appropriate  consciousness because they use i-Pads instead of "getting to know" an imagined entity.
