As students of the 21st century we are lucky enough to have been born in the generation where technology was becoming a norm of society, we use it daily in our everyday lives but some of us don't realize that there are limits to using technology in terms of time management. So what are the consequences of using technology for unreasonable long periods of time? Well to start off In the last decade, social media platforms have become a huge hit on the internet and teens and adults are now hooked on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and others. Many spend excessive time on social media and become tech-addicts. This is not good as you may lose track of what you are supposed to be doing this resulting in a lot of procrastination. Along with that, technology can be bad for health. Since most tech tools have a visual interface, there is a risk of eyesight-related issues associated with it. The growing rates of obesity, hypertension, and diabetes are consequences of overusing technology and making it your only priority. Technology combined with education is a very powerful tool that can alter the way we learn, think, and see the world. But, it is also essential to have a perfect balance between education technology learning and traditional learning so that we can ensure the overall development of students.
