What is digital world?
How is your digital world?
How would you define the term ‘digital world’? To me digital world means, the way we use technology in our lives. Living in a digital world is being able to accept that our world is changing and it is becoming more and more technology focus. More people are starting to use smartphones, laptops, tablets and IPads. Allowing digital devices to help with our day-to-day living and activities is essential, and accepting the fact that technology is becoming a big part of our world. Some examples of using technology in our daily activities are, using your smartphone as an alarm, using a navigation device to find your way around places, skyping family overseas or interstate. These are only a few ideas of how we use digital devices in our world.
Below is a video spoken by Abha Dawesar, She speaks about living in the digital now world and how our lives have become fixated on the drive to digital connection and how we may miss out on the real of the world (Dawesar,2013)
Gallo (2013) a school counsellor stated that “Today’s adolescents have grown up in a world revolving around digital technology’
Many of today’s young people have been labelled digital natives because of their heavy reliance and use of the Internet and digital technology (Gallo, 2013)
Living in a world where digital technologies are available in most places is a significant sign of what our world is coming to. As humans, we need to be ready to accept the changes and to embrace the use of technologies.
Are you ready to accept and embrace the “Digital World” we live in? This is just something to think about as you go on your everyday adventures. Have a think how often you use digital technologies in your live?
