Technology In Todays World

Looking from the past into today's world, I see a big difference in technology. People who used to say hello to me when I walked down the street don't anymore. Usually this is because they happen to be talking, texting or playing games on their technology. Lots of people agree that technology is helpful in lots of different ways. Children can use technology for educational purposes. They can type up a story then use programmes to help enhance their stories. Sites such as "Cool Maths Games" and "Mathletics" can help children with maths. Technology can be extremely dangerous. People can be concentrating on the song they are listening to on their technology too much. So they could walk across a street without even realising that a car had to suddenly put on their brakes to avoid hitting them. Technology has helped peoples lives become easier. People can now shop on line to buy just about anything that they want. People don't have to go to book shops to buy books. People can type in the name of a book, buy it as an e-book, then read it on their technology. Music is the same, you don't need a gramaphone to play songs from records, nor do you need a CD player to play songs from CD's. Instead of using a gramaphone or a CD player you can get all the music you want from i-tunes on most technology. Certain technology especially cell phones can be hazardous when driving. A driver could injure themselves and others when using their phone while driving. A problem with technology that has internet, is that people can get into all sorts of sites. There are sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat that you can chat with nearly anyone. People can chat with people who they think are their new friends. When people meet their new friends in real life they may not be so friendly. When people post things on Youtube or on their blogs, the whole world can see it. If someone posted something inappropriate they could be in a lot of trouble. Some of us think technology is great for doing nearly anything. While others think the world would be a safer place without technology. So if you do have technology try to remember to still say hello when walking down the street.


  1. Fantastic piece of writing, Maria. What a superb vocabulary you have. I found it really effective how you revisited the key idea of people walking down the street again in your conclusion. You linked it back well to your main points. I can see why you won the Mrs J Trotter Cup. Well done - be proud.

  2. I agree with Mr Moore, Maria. Well done and congratulations on your success. This is an excellent, informative and thought provoking piece of writing.
