--Issue Task 


Technology, while apparently aimed to simplify our lives, only makes our lives more complicated.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.


In the last few decades, technology has become abundant in our society. The type of technology we use ranges from cell phones to satellites to washing machines. While some believe that technology has made our lives more complicated, technology has actually made our lives easier because we know more about our planet and those around us. Technology has given us more ways to communicate with one another and allows us to explore more of our universe that would not be possible without the advancement of technology.

When most of us think about technology we are quick to assume one is talking about a cell phone or a computer. However, the term technology encompasses so much more. Examples of technology include satellites that allow us to view parts of our solar sytem or GPS devices that allow us to navigate an unfamiliar city. Technology is important because it gives anyone the chance to explore topics that were once unfamiliar and unknown. For example, without technology we would not have been able to know about the other planets in our solar system. Technology has given society the opportunity to know more about our universe.

Furthermore, technology has made our lives easier because it has made things faster. One can easily communicate with anyone around the world in a matter of seconds. Technology such as Facebook or Twitter have allowed us to communicate current events in real time. For example, many people believed that Twitter gave youth in the Middle East to communicate with one another and thus was a driving force behind the Arab Spring.

While technology has allowed for faster exploration of our world and quicker communication, there are some that might argue that technology has made our lives more complicated. Many believe that technology hinders our personal relationships with others and makes us more distant from one another. Others also believe that certain types of technology are too costly because one is always paying for the new cell phone updates that come out every season.

Technology has dramatically changed our world and it is clear that technology will only keep advancing and it will never go away. Technology has made our lives easier becasue we know so much more about the world around us. We can communicate with each other faster and keep relationships in many parts of the world.
