1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

“Technology is a hindrance, not a help, to students because they are wasting too much time on MSN, computer games and other new technology. (5E Cindy)

I firmly agree with the above statement. Nowadays, technology becomes more and more popular and it is not difficult to see that there are numerous technological products in our daily life! Although the uses of technology have improved our lives and we can communicate with the others by using, for instance, MSN. Nevertheless, there are many disadvantages occurred when we abuse the use of technology! I will examine each of them in detail.

First of all, our health will be harmed when we spend too much time on the use of computer and television. It is to everybody’s knowledge that there is radiation released from them. In turn, we will suffer from shortsightness and other vision illnesses easily. According to a suvery conducted by the Chinese University of Hong Kong, there are more than thirty six per cent of primary students in Hong Kong suffering from shortsightness. Comparing with other countries, Hong Kong is the a city having the problem to the most serious extent, in the world!

Second, students waste too much time on computer games and other electric game products like NDS and PSP. They cannot pay attention to their studies. Iin accordance with one interview which is underwent in June, more than eight per cent of Hong Kong students own electric game products and each of them has three on average. It is very common that students spend their past-time on computer games! If the students waste too much time and energy on playing computer games, how can they pay attention to the lessons in school energetically? How can they rivet on their studies without taking notice of those games? It is not hard to understand that students will be addicted on those computer games and ignore their studies!

Third, there are many violent and pornographic information on the internet. Although we can search for different types of information, there are still some unavoidable adverse effects. Inevitably, students will be affected inappropriately in terms of psychological development.

Last but not least, I think technology is a hindrance to students because most of them do not really know how to use technology in a proper way! In view of this, I think it is much necessary for students to restrain themselves when they are using the technology. Besides, they should schedule the times spent on the technology products.
