We are leaving in a modern time of world where everything comes with modern different types of technology and we are enjoying all them. It’s a really fact and natural thing technology have become a part of our life and we all are showing in all tasks of life with technologies. Technology has different parts and we can see technology in all part of life even in small things. Now I am going to describe the content main feature.
New technologies offer us access to different tools for the production of our own content, and at the same time the space to publish and socialize them on the Internet, through blogs, social networks, web pages, applications to share content, etc.
The Internet revolution is that people can consume, produce and exchange content immediately. Access to information provides a unique opportunity to build knowledge, to expand borders, to access other worlds that were previously distant or impossible.
When we talk about opportunities we point to a significant and importance of ICT and we understand that this takes place when children identify, use and integrate in their daily lives the technological resources that allow them to learn, socialize, share and be prepared for their insertion work in the future. This use has to be crossed by a critical, creative and constructive capacity that should be fostered at home and at school.
Here we present some of the opportunities that we consider that the Internet and the different technological devices contribute to the personal development and education of children and adolescents for importance of ICT:
Access information and multimedia content
Nowadays, the Internet is a space where children can find the information they need to be up-to-date, learn about what is happening on a global level, see news, support themselves when doing their tasks, learn about everything type of topics, including the dangers that can be found when making use of technologies and how to prevent them, among other things.
Also enjoy countless multimedia contents that shape your personal interests and interests, as well as share them with others through the networks.
Communicate and socialize
The technologies allow them to be constantly communicated either with their friends or with their parents, they facilitate communication. No matter where the other is located, there are several possibilities to get in touch either by email, by instant messaging such as chats, or via cell phone.
In addition, technologies allow them to maintain and expand friendly relationships despite the distance, be integrated into a peer group, act quickly in cases of emergency, communicate news that interests them, and of course, have fun sharing games, videos, tests and different applications.
Social networks, the main allies of communication among young people, also help to shape the social networks of belonging, so important in adolescence.
ICT can be instruments that promote and reinforce learning, which make it more attractive and simple. The inclusion of new technologies in educational processes has generated the need to rethink them, especially in the way in which classes are taught within schools and how parents can be involved in this process.
Currently, schools have a number of possibilities thanks to the integration of importance of ICT in their teaching methods. Students feel more motivated to have resources that allow them to search for information and perform tasks in less time and in a more interactive way. The same happens at home when doing homework, because, having these technological tools, the kids feel more motivated and have another dynamism to access videos, songs, shorts, websites that illustrate the content to be learned.
Produce content and participate
Children and adolescents feel very comfortable with the fact that schools are incorporating the use of computers for the development of classes ICT. New creative processes of content production can be generated using the resources offered by new technologies, as a complement to written work or as a substitute for it, if the possibility exists. This production of content can be reflected in the production of documentaries or mini-documentaries, thematic videos, radio programs, blogs, web pages, social networking pages, virtual books, school magazines, etc.
Play and have fun
Children have the opportunity to increasingly access interactive games specially designed for them, which allow them and help them develop different skills and abilities such as intelligence, knowledge, strategic thinking, role exchange, expression, etc…
The access to violent games or the abuse of the amount of time that a boy remains in a game, are issues that parents have to attend, just to be able to guide the game towards the positive that it can offer.
Promote interculturality and reduce social gaps
ICT promotes intercultural communication, brings knowledge and experiences among children and adolescents from different cultures, from different parts of the country and the world, accepting each other as digital citizens, respecting and learning from the experiences and knowledge of the other.
In the same way that technologies enrich the social relationships of children and adolescents, they diversify them, reduce time and distance, ICT also contribute to the reduction of social gaps since boys and girls who belong to low-income sectors have access to the Internet and different technological devices, especially thanks to various government educational programs that donate laptops to children and young people, giving them the option of enjoying the benefits provided by ICT tools and opening doors to their future.
