Modern technology and its impact on children

The rapid changes in technology provide people with numerous benefits and at the same time there is a lot of confusion to deal with it. Especially for parents who always strive to design good careers for their children, worry about the technological

changes as they’re not much aware of what’s happening around and what their children’s future career requires. Quib.ly has published an infographic on “Modern technology and its impact on children”. Let me share a few interesting things from it.

60% of parents feel that the pace of technological change makes it hard for them to keep up with the opportunities available for their children.

Here are the biggest impacts according to the parents:

34% of parents said, “Kids will be less intellectually curious.”

34%: “They won’t get on the best career path for them”.

24%: “They’ll miss out on social opportunities online”.

41%: “They won’t know valuable skills like reputation management, programming or online learning”.

About the Flip:

62% mothers agreed that their kids might miss great opportunities like “Flip learning” and “coding classes” because technological changes are happening very fast and they don’t know where to look for it.

52% dads also shared the same concern.

This infographic also included few more interesting statistics. You may find them below on the infographic right here.
