According to Postman (1998), he mentioned about the “Five things we need to know about the Technology change”. He stated that Technology change is always a trade off. Technology giveth and technology taketh away. This means that for every advantage a new technology offers, there is always a corresponding disadvantage.
I would like share my ideas here.
In this 21st century, every one of us live with all types of Digital Resources. Me, myself can’t live without my hand phone. I had to use my phone everyday to “Facebook”, “Whatsapp” with my friends or even read online news.
On the other side, I would really hate to buy newspaper to read news compared with getting instant news using my phone. Yet, I had dropped my phone on floor while I am taking out from my pocket. My phone was crash and had to send my phone to repair for a week. A questions to ask yourself, “Since that different kind of Digital Resources are around us(Ipad/ Iphone), why don’t we just use it by just a click to know all the instant news?”
