We are now living in a developing generation which can be seen from the manufacturing of cars and buses to ease our transportation from one place to another, elevators that make us get to the higher level without using much energy and social media platforms that help us to communicate faster and easier. These are all used to help us in our daily task and almost everyone is using it.
#1 Ease the access to information
This is especially for students because with the latest technology, they will be able to search for their work-related websites and just read it through their phones and laptop. They no longer have to buy books and make their bags heavy or go to the library to read the books and they can just subscribe to any learning materials from the internet.
#2 Innovation in many skills
Other than educational skills, there are a lot of hands-on skills that need to be practised. For example, in the manufacturing and industrial industry, they no longer have to cut the metals or woods using hand tools but with technology, they can now enhance the skills on how to handle programmed machines. With time, everything is developing to get better. There are a lot of different machines that we can see because of the large CNC machining Malaysia has manufactured different machines to help the industry.
#3 Better communication
As I have mentioned above, the existence of social media helps us to communicate better. This is because first, the gadgets have been invented to have faster and better communication. We used to send letters and mails but do you still want to do it now? It takes a lot of time and effort to make sure the letter arrived safely to the recipient. It is slowly developing from sending letters to phone calls to video calls and now we are actively using teleconferencing to replace meetings in the office.
How technology can save you money and time?
During pandemic, we can no longer travel across the country to settle our job and business. Now, we practise virtual meeting or teleconferencing. Why? Because it saves time and money. You don’t have to spend hours travelling by car or bus or airplane. Airplane tickets, bus tickets and fuel will obviously cost you a lot of money but with technology we can do all of it just from home. These transportations will also cost you a lot of time and energy but with virtual meetings, you no longer have to suffer back pains. All you need to have is a phone or laptop and a good internet connection and you are good to go.
But even with all of the benefits, there will always be some disadvantages of the technologies especially for the kids. The first one is with technology, it might be the main factor of why some are lacking communication skills. Other than that, it can be harmful for your eyes if you look at the screen too much as it may be too bright or too dark for your eyes. After all, too much of something is never a good thing so use the technologies with moderation to make use of it in a good way.
