1C- Responding To Einstein

In Albert Einsteins quote “I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.” he predicted that in the future (current time) everyone will be techno-isolated. Techno-isolation is the idea that due to the use of technology, people are becoming more socially separated from others. Some pictures that we viewed showed everyone sitting on their cell phones instead of communicating with the people around them. Technology has influenced globalization because it is making people become less connected to the world around them since they are dependent on their technology. In the world the majority of the population uses technology in their everyday lives for communication, work, and researching. It seems as that most people are unable to function without being able to be on their technology. In social situations, for example going to a restaurant people tend to bring out their cell phones instead of talking without the people around them. Einstein’s prediction on technology was correct, because we are becoming techno-isolated.
