Development Of Technology
Technology development has been experienced over the years. The pace of development however has not been even. There are many factors that have influenced technology development. Development of technology started long ago and has been there for a long as man can remember. When science was struggling to develop, the pace of technology development was also very slow. As science shaped up, so did the technology. There were new inventions and this enhanced the shape of technology development. New inventions and innovations created a better plat form for better technology development. Those who have been keen on the trend of technology development agree with me that technology developed at a better and enhanced pace as the science grew. Today, however, people can enjoy and make use of the developed technology that is available in the world today. Different regions in the world, however, still enjoy different classes of technology.
Reasons for slow technology development
The pace of technology development has been attributed to by many factors. The major reason for slow technology development is the availability of resources. Both capital and skills largely affect the pace of technology development. Countries like America that enjoy high technology levels and fast paces of technology development have better resources. These countries have also invested a lot in developing he innovation culture. Fabrication tools: In the early days, people lacked the correct fabricating tools. This was the main reason overlying slow pace of technology development in the yester days. During those days, innovations were done on trial and error basis. People did not understand the basic principles overlying technology developments. The basic principles only became clear to them when they tried to explain why and how certain innovations and inventions worked. There was thus need for serious research on the technology principles. This led to growth of science and the there was a better interaction of science and technology development.
The era of fast paced technology development
With the increased understanding of science and basic principles, there was increased development. Basic electrical machines were developed. This made things even easier and there was increase in development. Machines like motors and electrical generators made it easier to manufacture goods in large quantities. The cost of production was reduced and it was easy to maintain consistent quality production of goods. There was also the development of alternative sources of energy. There was continued research that leads to a revolution in the manufacturing industry.
It’s agreeable that, Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going whether forwards or backwards as well. Technology has enable Us to increase our comfort and to achieve efficiency in all sectors of life .without technology ,we can’t achieve any progress or development . thanks to technology ,we can modernize our industry so life becomes easier for us and next generations .despite advantages mentioned above, there are drawbacks of technology . so we can consider technology is a servant but a bad master.
There are some modern technological developments that play a major role in making our daily life more effective . television is ,no doubt, a good servant .it’s the cheapest source of information and entertainment nowadays .TV has a big influence in our life . It can be an educational tool. there is a considerable variety of TV programmes which give us instruction as well as education . there are , for examples , some programmes for educating adult illiterates and others for teaching foreign languages . besides ,a lot of films, plays and series are presented time at home . Television also provides outlet for creative talents . many playwrights ,actors emerged from television . color TV has given greater opportunities for such talents.
However ,television is a bad master . it has a negative effect on our behavior It encourages us to accept violence and to be inactive and unimaginative. it occupies most of our time . thus , we have no time left to pursue our hobbies , listen to music or read books . it also regulates our free time . we rush home ,gulp food and then sit in complete silence before the TV screen . Many television channels broadcast violent films and programs. The more our children see violence on television , the less sensitive they become to it . So , violence doesn’t seem wrong . We can also notice that violence on television doesn’t seem to have consequence s . An actor who is killed in a film an hour ago ,can be seen laughing in another program . This may confuse with reality and we forget killing must be permanent
Television also encourages passive enjoyment it is a tool to cut us off from the real world .We become less active . We do nothing except turning it on and changing the channels . We can’t even move around to practice sports . we get little so lazy and of course we will suffer from physical diseases . we choose to spend a fine day in semi ‘darkness ,glued to our sets , rather than go out into the world itself. Besides , its bad effect concerning social relationship, we notice that TV cuts the soul of gathering people in one trend . In addition, we notice the bad morals that spread in society among people . Crimes spread as a result of bad films and forcing scenes . social illnesses prevail over the countries Addiction to watching TV acts as a hindrance to our imagination . Stories are told for us . We don’t even have to imagine what the place of stories look like
On my opinion . television can tight relations . News and other information , we see on television gives us topics to discuss with our friends and family . Television also helps us to understand each other better as we all have access to its programmes . TV can help us share our interests with other people . Television programmes give us topics to think about . Now we can know about news in a few minutes after they happen all over the world . For example , now we know about those who die of birds flu minutes after the event . We all like to discuss these matters with other people . So , Television news and information programmes help us to discuss our ideas with others . No matter where you live ,you have access to many television channels . You can watch television programmes and movies of many other foreign countries . through them you can get information about many different cultures . When you go to a new city to work , study or take a vacation , you will already have something in common with the people there . Where you meet new people ,you will probably be familiar with at least some of the television programs they watch . The gives you something to talk about and a way to begin new friendships
Most people use television as a way to pursue their interest . People who play sports usually like to watch sports on television . Those who like to cook prefer to watch cooking programs . Television encourage s communication among people . Television is a tool that gives access to information and entertainment as well as education . You can share others’ interests effectively
Technology is also needed to raise our standard of living . our homes are more comfortable and use fewer energy recourses thanks to improvements in home construction techniques as well as computer technology . without technology we couldn’t have treatments for heart diseases thanks to progress in medicine
From the above ‘ mentioned lines we come to a conclusion that says “technology is good ” Without it there would be no change ,no improvement s in our economy ,our standard of living , or our health . Hence , We can’t deny the necessity of technology.
