Explore the negative impacts of technology in the community with a pair of printable worksheets.
What is the Impact of Technology on Society? On Kids?
What do you think? Is technology a good thing or a bad thing? Is it more hurtful than harmful? This seems like a loaded topic, and everyone has a different opinion. Regardless of individual thoughts, the answer to this question is simple…. it’s both. More often than not, students see only the positives of using technology. They only see technologies that are fun…video games, television, streaming services, etc. But there are some negatives as well. That’s why we’d like to help you teach your students about moderating their technology use by presenting them with the facts.
