The positive effect is that it accelerates what one person can do.(like a car =]) The negative effect is that that's not always a good thing and can sometimes hurt society. Wi…th tech you can make one person do the work of 100's or 1000's but that could also put 100's or 1000's out of a job. With tech, you can protect yourself by encrypting all your transmissions, however it makes it that much easier for someone to protect truly harmful transmissions like child p orn or criminal activity. Overall, and in a modern sense, tech decentralizes the power and control over the media and distributes it to regular people creating a more democratic society. In the same way, it destabilizes society by challenging the authority of institutions within that society who need to centralize power to maintain that control that does provide stability. However, the emergence of tech will show that old institutions are no longer needed. Think, CNN/major music labels being laid waste in the wake of blogging and file sharing. Hope that helps.
The positive effect of technology on the environment is that it hasmade life a lot easier and effective through various types oftechnology. The disadvantage of technology on e…nvironment is thatit has led to more cases of pollution.
Information technology will speed up everything. The only negative of it when people become so dependent to it that it can not move with it.
Positive factors are reduced time in acquiring information/freesharing of knowledge/no virtual barriers of distance and mainnegative effect is wrong information freely availab…le.
Technology helps employees do their jobs faster. One downfall totechnology is the fact that many people have to be trained forweeks in order to learn how to use it.
The positive effects include making information more accessible. This brings me to the term "Information Age" , and this comes from the fact that in history, never before hav…e we had information so accessible. Knowledge is ready to absorb. The negative effect is that as a species, we have become more antisocial and more reliant on technology than we were before the invention of the telephone. In the text book "Ethics for the Information Age, 3RD Edition" by Michael J. Quinn , it discusses this topic in chapter one. It discusses the Amish and how they as a community come together each year and vote on what technology if any, they should adapt, but only if the technology will bring them closer together. One example of this is a barbecue grill. An example of technology that causes them to fall away is the phone. Imagine if you had no phone, you would see family more often, rather than just text messaging or calling across the street.
You can sum up both things in one word: Knowledge. Knowledge can either be good or bad, because there are some things that you would prefer to ignore, "ignorance is blessing…". However, science has given men and nature more benefits than negative effects. *Negative Effects: -Deforestation -Pollution -Animal Suffering (in animal testing) -Biological weapons -Genetically altered foods *Positive Effects: -Cures to unknown diseases -Better quality foods -Better manufacturing processes -Better understanding of the world -Better communication (internet, fiber optics, etc)
Technology has thousands of benefits, including the ability to communicate faster, organize and transmit data more efficiently. One major downside is DISTRACTION.
positif and negatif effects of technologie
well one positive is that you can get tasks done much quicker, the downside is no one communicates face to face anymore its all done through email or texting
Technology can be very powerful and be used as a learning tool, a communication tool, a tool to help others and so much more. But, if technology is used constantly, real world… interaction is lessened, and people end up spending more time with technology than with others.
well since technology has arrived a lot of people spend most of their time by entertaining themselves by watching tv,playing video games,playing on the computer,listening to s…ongs,playing apps on their iphones/ipads and many other activities that involve any use of screen. Most people have been distracted by technology, they can not focus on being healthy. A lot of people have been too lazy to keep in mind that they need to keep fit for their future. For example a lot of Americans don't focus on health ,they focus more on television. Some of those people's parents don't care if their child is healthy or not because they were raised unproperly. So then when those people get their child they raise them the same way they were raised so then the whole generation gets messed up. In my mind i don't think too much positive about technology ,instead i think about keeping healthy and fit. I encourage a lot of people to work out and exercise to get healthy and fit and not get blinded and be trapped in the world of technology.
It really depends on who you ask; It is positive by letting the world get connected in just a second where without it it would take days, weeks, months just to talk to the per…son or people. It was negative by everyone using their devices every second of the day, they don't even pay attention to where they are going. Overall it just depends on who you ask.
positive- you can connect every time you want. negative- you can't see each others face any more
they are all positive. less work
smaller, more efficient able to obtain private information.
