Tech Tyranny: A Teen’s Take on Dependency

By: Raiana Imanalieva

Recently, teenagers have adapted to the new modern technology to get ready for the future world. Before, pens and pencils were the best technology, but now we have smartphones, laptops, and much more. Some say that students are too dependent on modern technology, but using it often prepares them for the new world ahead of us. It can benefit students by improving their academic performance to helping them stay organized at all times.    

Modern technology can be used to stay connected with friends and family, access educational resources, enhance our learning, save time and stay organized. Nowadays, it is really easy to stay connected with other people even if they’re on the other side of the world. The only thing you need is your phone. Technology can help students stay engaged with their school work, and with the right tools, students can explore new resources on the internet. With the help of modern technology, students are now able to research anything at any time, which is much quicker than trying to find information from a book. Additionally, it helps students stay organized due to the fact that they can easily make checklists or to-do lists on their electronics. 

In my opinion, I think that we should keep using modern technology because it benefits us in many ways. It’s really easy to use and is much quicker to use than anything else. It has helped me with my school assignments and has taught me many things that I would’ve never known if it wasn’t for modern technology. I also know a bunch of people who would definitely prefer it rather than trying to find information from a book.
