Technological illiteracy

Technological illiteracy is a real problem and those of us who work every day online and with technology often forget how overwhelming it can all seem to those that don’t. Teaching everyone how to use, manage, evaluate, and understand technology and information online is as critical a subject as reading or math. I believe that we have a civic responsibility to make sure that not just our family but other demographics that are routinely marginalized online have the tools they need to access information and engage in the conversations that will shape our collective future.



There are some English snobs who want to keep this knowledge to themselves. And assume that others can find it for themselves. I post what I think will be helpful.

Honestly I cant wait to go back to Stone age.
I have cut down usage of technology as much as I can.
For eg, I pound my own spices instead of a blender.

Shut my Wi- Fi and only use sparingly.
Use less of car and walk to nearby stores.

Using less of washing machine and trying handwash more.

Using brain more than smart phone.
Writing with pen in notebooks instead of saving in smart phone.

Only watch TV for 1 hour a day.
Hardly have music on...rather sing myself.

We would be surprised that the attention span, focus and mental calmness increases when we shut down external technology and use our " inner technology".

We tend to only think of technology as machines and gadgets.
Imagine a machine asking us to declare " I am not a robot" Captcha.

We never teach ourselves the inner technology we have ..we should have a balance of both outer and inner technology.

Good Renuka. I feel technology is being thrust upon. There should be a choice of not using technology. Right now it is getting heavily biased for tech inclined people.
