Transcript of the Impact of the Modern Technology on Daily Life

the Impact of the Modern Technology on Daily Life
To help us learn about the impact of modern technology more roundly so that we can use it more critically and adapt to the increasingly modern and complex world easily.
The flow of the presentation
1.Introduction: (1) Definition of technology (2) Background
2.The good side of modern technology
3.The bad side of modern technology
4.Modern technology leads to a increasingly complex world
6. Conclusion
The definition of technology
the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry. For example, the computer technology. (the Oxford Dictionary)
What are Stone Tools?
A stone tool is an artefact.Stone tools include finished axes, knifes and digging blades.
Why are Stone Tools important?
Stone tools are an important link to identifying camping, trading and war grounds; ceremonial sites or food preparation sites.

Implements such as axe heads and small cutting blades were used in these areas.

Quality stone tools were highly valued and traded extensively across the country.

Transport is a key necessity for specialization—allowing production and consumption of products to occur at different locations. Transport has throughout history been a spur to expansion; better transport allows more trade and a greater spread of people. Economic growth has always been dependent on increasing the capacity and rationality of transport.
Information Technology
What is information technology
In the 1960s and 1970s, the term information technology (IT) was a little known phrase that was used by those who worked in places like banks and hospitals to describe the processes they used to store information. With the paradigm shift to computing technology and "paperless" workplaces, information technology has come to be a household phrase. It defines an industry that uses computers, networking, software programming, and other equipment and processes to store, process, retrieve, transmit, and protect information.
The influence of the Information Technology
The Birth of New Jobs
– The era of new jobs. Computer programmers, Systems analyzers, Hardware and Software developers and Web designers are just some of the many new employment opportunities created with the help of IT. Probably new more jobs to come in more years.
– Before many years internet-café or making long distance calls or sending mails via post center are pain in the butt… beside of slow it is pretty expensive. Now the technology grows dramatically the communication become cheaper, quicker and much efficient. The internet communications has also opened up to face to face communication and live update streaming  not in computer but also in mobile phones and other gadgets.

The influence of the Information Technology
Cost effectiveness – 
Information technology has helped to computerize the business process thus streamlining businesses to make them extremely cost effective money making machines. This in turn increases productivity which ultimately gives rise to profits that means better pay and less strenuous working conditions.
Unemployment –
While information technology may have streamlined the business process it has also created job redundancies, downsizing and outsourcing. Means most of the lower and middle jobs have been wipe off causing more people are unemployed

The good side of modern technology
think about:which one is your first choice? When you are traveling?
Case study 1. The facility of classroom
hundred years ago—no computer, no air-condition, no projector.
Nowadays: because of modern technology, we use Power point and Prezi to help us to understand the course better. We use computers to take notes which are environmental friendly and we enjoy the suitable temperature which create by air-conditions.
Case study 2. Navigation facility
When your go to a place which you have never gone to. How can you avoid getting lost?
In the past we took the map and compass. But it still has a great possibility that we get lost because the map is not the newest and so on.
Nowadays we use GPS to find the way.
Case study 3 Medical facility
If you got sick and had to have a operation, which one would you choose?
With modern technology
1. we can ease up the pain
2.we can improve the security and accuracy of operation.
So from above cases we find that modern technology can let our life become more convenient. With the help of the technology, we can achieve many things which were impossible in the past.
In addition, modern technology also help to solve environmental problems such as using computers to read articles can help to reject cutting trees which is good for the environment.
The bad side of modern technology
1. The influence on daily life
2.Environmental issues
3.Adverse effects
Computer, mobile phone: Teenagers who use the Internet for a long time that not only damages their eyes, but also makes themselves addicted, leading to neglecting their studies, personality quirks and away from society and so on. Online shopping also makes us to be deceived.
So what should we do to help them?

I consider that if we enrich ourselves, we can not depend on network too much, we can live in the real life.
The influence on daily life
Air-condition: In the long-term air-conditioned environment, we are easy to get air sick, people's ability to adapt to the environment will deteriorate, exacerbate urban heat island effect, the formation of thermal pollution.
Vehicle: Humans will be lack of exercise so that physical fitness is not good as before.
Environmental issues
E-waste: We
use up
a large number of batteries, cell phones, computers
in our daily life
each year. As a result,they damage our environment hundreds or even thousands of years .
Plastics: White pollution has become a major environmental hazard, a serious impediment to the sustainable development of China's economy and the environment, so green disposable tableware production and development is becoming a country emerging environmental industries.
Adverse effects:
A waste of time: Accelerate the pace of life of people, reduce people's living standards, make people become lazy. Now people living in happiness index is declining constantly.
Personal safety is not in guarantee: On average, tens of thousands criminal behaviors happen every day and the criminal means of them mostly related to modern technology.

For example, more serious bullying snare even let us killed.Moreover, it is dangerous that we meet our friends just know each other by network, because we can be cheated.
War: With the development of technology, damage and loss caused by the war nowadays cannot compare with the previous war and they may even cause human extinction fate if we don‘t control them.
For example, due to the rapid development of network technology today leading to Snowdon event and causing conflicts among nations.
For example, due to the rapid development of network technology today leading to Snowdon event and causing conflicts among nations.
Modern technology & an increasingly complex world
From the above, we can see that modern technology has permeated into all aspects of the society and made a huge impact. The high-speed flow of information and the new things change constantly. They all make the world become increasingly complex and competitive.
 Increasingly modern technology means an increasingly complex world, how can we live in an increasingly complex world?
Competition and cooperation
In modern society, whether collective or individual, they are all in the competition and cooperation, we can cooperate for common interests, we can also pursue the benefit through different competition. In a word, competition and cooperation are everywhere. Following the globalization, there are more competition and cooperation opportunities.
The definition of the competition is that people battle or attend public competition in order to acquire their own interests. The result of the competition is to select the superior and eliminate the inferior.
Competition is a way that countries use for survival and development eternally. If a country without competition, there will be no progress, no development. If a person without competition, there will be no motivation. In a word, today is a competitive world.
case 1.
Modern technology means that the globalization is more and more obvious(we can got it from the above presentation). China have accessed to the WTO since 2002, domestic competition is becoming more intense
The opinion of expert.
Qin Chijiang, the consultant of people's bank of China, thought that after China joining the WTO, international financial institutions enter the Chinese market and Chinese financial sector is facing pressure greater than before, so the competition is becoming inevitable. Medical institutions after China accessing to the WTO is also influenced by a lot. Further reform in the medical service market means that the field of health reform and development will bring new opportunities and challenges, competition is becoming the new subject for the medical industry, only keeping competing can adapt to the development of social trends.
case 2.
As for the individual, in order to follow the development of modern technology, how can we get the final victory in the competitive world? In fact, we can do it from three parts
(1). Strengthen the basic knowledge learning, complete the basic knowledge reserve in order to make an adequate preparation to use knowledge in the future. The essence of modern society just is the information, a large amount of timely and accurate information means that we are not far away from the success.
(2). Update ideas, set up the ideas that can meet the needs of modern society. The development of human society means the thought liberation, the ideas constantly updating. The heavy lesson is that the policy of keeping closed a country in the qing dynasty, the obstinate old thoughts made our national development level behind the western countries for decades.
(3). Improve the individual qualities in an all-round way. We not only learn the knowledge in the book, but also improve the abilities of practice, the abilities to adapt to society,what's more, we should make the most efforts to transform our knowledge into abilities.
Of course, except the competition, we also need cooperation to adapt to the modern society.
Cooperation is among people and people, groups and groups which is in order to achieve the common purpose, is a joint action or way that cooperate with others. The most ideal result of cooperation is to realize a win-win situation.
In the increasingly modern and complex world, if we want to adapt to the world and get a great achievement, we need to learn cooperation. In the environment of a lack of cohesion, no matter individual has much ambition, have much intelligence, it is impossible to get full play! Only the strict and orderly collective organization and efficient team can utilize the unity cooperation to overcome a various of difficulties, even make miracles.
A successful cooperation is also based on individual behavior, so how can we do to improve our abilities to get a successful cooperation? There are also three parts to make us become a good number of a successful group.
(1). Have a sense of mutual tolerance, have the mind to understand each other. When there are some collisions between personal interests and group interests, sometimes they are even incompatible, we should think about the team interests at the first.
(2). Have the sense of responsibility, in the increasingly modern and complex world, it seems more necessary that we have to tie the individual and the group together, increasing complex world requires that people need to do everything perfectly and be far away from errors as much as we can, it means that if a small error which one number of group make appare, the group will get the irreparable consequences.
(3). Keep learning and improving the work skills. Society is changing constantly, if we cann’t follow the modern technology’s developing, we will be abandoned by the modern society.
Modern technology lead to an increasing complex and competitive world, competition and cooperation make us adapt to the society more easily, competition makes us keep learning and follow the development of the modern technology, cooperation makes us get together to overcome the problem leisurely which the complex world brought. Learning the competition and the cooperation, we will become a master of the increasingly complex world of information.
