Technology and the Impact on Interaction

Yesterday morning I was listening to “Daily Roast” who opened with a quote from Einstein who said “ I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.” I thought this followed on nicely from my last blog that began talking about digital citizenship and the need to equip children to make informative decisions on its use. The Daily Roast was referring to the way in which the phone and other device use has impacted on the art of face to face conversation and social interaction. It is now seen as socially acceptable by many to have phones etc on and being used in situations where previously it would have been considered rude. This appears to fit into digital literacy and the need to school our students on when it is the appropriate time or situation to use them and the social impact that overuse may create.
