I feel that the growing importance of technology can’t be understand in terms of how I operate on a daily bases. As a journalism major the capability I have to shoot video, take pictures, and write articles from just about anywhere gives me the ability to voice my thoughts + opinions at a moments notice. I feel more connected with the world and certain events than ever before with all of the knowledge that is available on smartphones with social media apps. I can always stay content and customise the information that I want sent to me so I don’t have to waste time sifting through junk. I am aware that any good thing can be abused so I try and limit the amount of time I spend aimlessly surfing the web or using technology. But I think that as long as I keep doing that, my smartphone + computer will continue too. It’s an integral part of my daily life and an incredibly useful tool for learning. There’s not a day that passes where I don’t use my computer and it is part of the reason why I’m so productive.
