RWS 200 students will find Goldwasser’s article much less persuasive after understanding how the sources she uses, like Common Core and the NEA, are taken out of context in her whirl-winding assault against educational learning, and supporting the Internet. Many rhetorical strategies are used in Goldwasser’s “What’s the Matter with Kids Today?” to persuade the audience of her credibility. The introduction bombards the reader with statistics of Common Core surveys and other figures to present a sarcastic and mocking account of Goldwasser’s opposition. The teen blogging specialist rebuts that the older generation is afraid (through ignorance) of the power of the Internet. In order to maintain her credibility, the word “we” is used to identify herself as a member of this older group.
Criticizing people for being too passive in their convictions is not an uncommon complaint in this day and age, especially of young people. In fact, common disparagements of youth mirror Postman’s description of Brave New World almost perfectly. Postman writes of Huxley’s vision, “People will come to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think,” just as adults often say their children would rather text than have a real conversation, or go on Facebook than read a book. The complaint is not without validity, but it seems unfair to lay all the blame on Generation Y. The parents and grandparents of those disinterested teenagers and yuppies come from a generation that burned its draft cards and protested racism,
The article also suggested that teens also listened to the information better when it came from their parents rather than school, or other outside sources. Sex and Teens: Why Abstinence Isn’t Working from Oprah Magazine stated that a growing number of studies is proving that school abstinence programs have little impact on adolescent sexual behavior. Worse, new research suggests they could even be endangering kids by failing to
Technology in the cyber-world has been growing rapidly in recent times, and the internet has become the most useful communication and education tool. However, there is a lot of information provided in the cyber-world, both good and bad, and there is no any restriction for people using it. These conditions may cause serious risks for the internet users, particularly children and teenagers if they use it without parenting controls. This essay will discuss some problems related to the use of internet by children and teenagers and also give solution to tackle the problems concerning the serious risks. It will then explain some of the advantages and why it should not be banned by parents.
The generation gap is the basis for the video “Growing up Online.” In this video children and adults were asked to give their opinions about the internet. Most adults specifically parents feared for the safety of their children from internet predators and cyberbullies. The children weren’t as concerned about that kind of stuff though, in fact they felt as if the internet was a wonderful use for school and socializing. The producers noticed something, that maybe the parents and the children felt but, didn’t realize. They noticed something called a generation gap.
Moreover, students do not try to proof read their assignment before they hand it out. Besides he complained about students pay less attention on proof reading, he criticizes that students always try to copy and paste the original work from the Internet. He understands that technology can help everyone, and it makes human’s life efficiently. However, he thinks human should not apply their material which find on the Internet because some of those resource are very fundamental. At last, he believes that libraries and instructors should be responsible for teaching students how to do their research by using books to leads them have enthusiasm on their studies.
(Goldwasser, 667) Even people who can’t spell can text because everything is either abbreviated, or the device understands the word trying to be spelled so it finishes it for you. This requires no thinking skills, and we can just hope that after seeing it many times that it finally gets memorized. This is a major reason why young people today may struggle. People need to learn how to become more proactive in what they do. Lessing, an 88-year-old women puts in good terms that the internet has “seduced a whole generation into its inanities.”
Nicholas Carr and Clay Sharkey debate whether or not the internet is actually making us smarter or dumber. “Never has a communications system played so many roles in our lives- or exerted such broad influences over our thoughts, as the internet does today. “that is one of Carr’s viewpoints. Shirkey believes that “every increase in paperback book to you tube, alarms people accustomed to the restrictions of the old system, convincing them that the new media will make young people stupid. This fear dates back to at least the invention of movable type.” I tend to agree more with Sharkey because there are a lot of learning toold we can gain from the web.
