Need of technology: Is technology making our world better or worse and why?

We are used to liv­ing in a world that is heav­i­ly reliant on tech­nol­o­gy. We use our phones to order food, avoid traf­fic and book flights. 

But is tech­nol­o­gy mak­ing our world bet­ter or worse, and why? Would the world func­tion with­out com­put­ers, mobiles, cars or any­thing tech­no­log­i­cal? Or how would it exact­ly be? 

Let’s have a look…

Do we need technology to live a better life?

“It has been appalling­ly obvi­ous that our tech­nol­o­gy has exceed­ed human­i­ty.” This is a state­ment once said by the great sci­en­tist Albert Ein­stein which has been thrown around in our soci­ety for a while. 

Although it has some real­i­ty in it, I would dis­agree with it because of all the pos­i­tive impacts that tech­nol­o­gy has on our lives. I am a firm believ­er that tech­nol­o­gy is vital to our sur­round­ings and I think that it helps us live a bet­ter life. 

Here are some of the ways in which technology helps us:

  1. We can nav­i­gate around places eas­i­ly through maps, apps and phones. You no longer have to wor­ry about get­ting lost or being late for your impor­tant meet­ings because you know the time to which you should be there.
  2. It makes our lives eas­i­er by mak­ing dif­fi­cult tasks seem sim­ple and effec­tive. You no longer have to deal with traf­fic or find park­ing spaces in the morn­ing. You can just get on your phone and find out the time of your meet­ings and plan for a time you would like to arrive to.
  3. We can nev­er tru­ly man­age our time. By using tech­nol­o­gy, we can edit doc­u­ments, search for items in a ware­house and see things that we would have oth­er­wise missed.
  4. Books and oth­er read­ing mate­ri­als are eas­i­er to access now because of our phones and tech­nol­o­gy in gen­er­al because you are able to get infor­ma­tion as it is hap­pen­ing at any giv­en moment . You will nev­er miss some­thing as obvi­ous as an email from your teacher again!
  5. By using tech­nol­o­gy, we can nev­er be dis­con­nect­ed again because of social media and the inter­net in gen­er­al. We will always have con­nec­tions to our loved ones no mat­ter where they are because of the inter­net and that allows us to be togeth­er at all times.

Now, the main question: Is technology making our world better or worse and why?

Well, I believe tech­nol­o­gy is mak­ing the world a bet­ter place. At the moment, tech­nol­o­gy has made life eas­i­er for us because we can access infor­ma­tion at our fin­ger­tips, from any­where. We are able to see every­thing that is hap­pen­ing through our phones and com­put­ers instead of hav­ing to use TV or news­pa­pers and magazines.

The first rea­son why tech­nol­o­gy is mak­ing the world a bet­ter place is because of how tech­nol­o­gy allows us to do jobs that were once impos­si­ble in the past. 

Before tech­nol­o­gy became major­ly used, peo­ple would have to car­ry heavy loads because they had no idea how they were going to get them there safe­ly or where they were going to put them until they got there.

In addi­tion to that, tech­nol­o­gy is not only use­ful in the work­place, but it has also made life eas­i­er for our fam­i­lies. Tech­nol­o­gy has made it easy to com­mu­ni­cate with one anoth­er because we are able to send text mes­sages and use apps to con­tact one anoth­er when needed.

Anoth­er rea­son why tech­nol­o­gy is mak­ing the world a bet­ter place is because of how it has allowed peo­ple to become more effi­cient. A lot of peo­ple think that they will nev­er be able to com­plete a task or job well until they use tech­nol­o­gy, but this is not true because tech­nol­o­gy can help you do things that you thought were impossible!

By using tech­nol­o­gy, you are able to do jobs your­self with­out hav­ing to pay for it as most rely on strangers for money.

In over­all, tech­nol­o­gy is mak­ing the world a bet­ter place. It has made life eas­i­er for us and helped us under­stand our sur­round­ings more. Being dis­con­nect­ed from oth­ers would be ter­ri­ble and no one would want it to happen.

Concluding Paragraphs

In my opin­ion, despite the fact that tech­nol­o­gy is mak­ing the world a bet­ter place, we should not for­get about its impact on nature and our whole plan­et as we would­n’t sur­vive in absence of it. But this could be eas­i­ly fixed with tech­nol­o­gy itself which we can see pro­gress­ing at present. 

Thus, tech­nol­o­gy has now become a part of our every­day lives and with­out it, we would have a very dif­fi­cult time. Tech­nol­o­gy is cru­cial in our soci­ety because with­out it, life would be sig­nif­i­cant­ly more chal­leng­ing and there is no way that you could get those extra points at work.
