QW 052912 “Virtual Viewpoint Discussion 0529”

UK Study Says Mobile Phones Are Safe to Use

Discussion A
1) Do you think people will stop using mobile phones if they learn phones can really cause health problems? Why or why not?
It’s totally a matter of personal decisions, choices, and preferences whether to use officially harmful human devices. If the convenience, necessity, and urge of using mobile phones outweigh health concerns, there would be no other choice but to use the device. I guess that if mobiles phones are proved to cause health problems for real, manufacturers will definitely try developing alternate devices that use less or no harmful technologies. That should help.

2) Aside from possible effects on health, how else can mobile phones affect people?
Mobile phones have enabled us to contact anybody anytime. It means that we can always be connected whether we like it or not, making us more insecure when not connected.

Discussion B
3) Do you think children should be allowed to use mobile phones? Why or why not?
Children can wait to have mobile phones because using the device properly requires certain level of literacy. If I were given a mobile phone at the age of 10 or so, I would soon be hooked on interactions through the phone, talking, texting, Twittering, Facebooking, while consuming huge amount of time. Parents need to be responsible for educating their children until they become mature enough to know the possible risks of using mobile phones and self-regulating the use of such device (I’m mature but have totally failed in self-regulating, though.) That being said, I’d say there’d be no advisable ages for children to start using mobile phones.

4) What are the advantages and disadvantages of younger generations growing up with so much technology?
So called “Digital Native Generation” will demonstrate their presence in our societies in no time. They’ve grown up with this technology, so they’ll be flexible and creative using it. I personally see no disadvantages of those Digital Natives. The only concern for them is that since the technology has our lives inexplicably convenient, some of the younger generation might not be able to accommodate the inconvenience of the live without mobile phones or PCs. Such concerns, however, can also be shared among older generation.
