The main points of this analysis would be to prove how the technology advancement has changed the way children have been thinking and focusing on the various things. In this a stress would be given on the comparison on the kind of children that existed in the past and the ones who have been developed due to the development and change in technology. The attention would be paid on both the aspects of negative and positive side of the development of technology and the changing focus, thinking and learning process of the children in the present times.
There has been a great development in the recent past in the technology and the ways in which it operates. These technologies are: Internet, Mobile Communication, Knowledge Management systems, Artificial Intelligence and various other tools and applications. This development in the technology has really changed the way children have been asking questions, learning, remembering, innovating, acting and arguing. These technologies have enabled the thinking and focus to be gaining more knowledge and information in almost all the areas. Although children have been learning and acquiring newer skills and talents yet saying at this point on whether it would be good or bad cannot be decided.
Attention of the children has been changed through these technological means or the sources. They have been able to learn, remain creative, solve various problems and even do the decision making process by paying the attention to the various sources and technological tools. Although there has been a lot of positive impact on children as they have been able to think and learn in a creative way through these technological tools and applications yet the negative impact continues (Taylor & Raden, 2007). They have been even distracting the children to the newer information and data that may not be applicable or useful to them. There is no security on the kind of data that could be assessed not over the television and the internet. Children are being exposed to all kinds of information and data without any specific security or privacy that could be put over them.
