We, in this 21st century are witnessing the technology boom especially the digital revolution. In the earlier days necessity was the mother of inventions but now a day it has changed vice versa and the key to all is the development in the field of digital media. There is no need of any theories to prove this point as we can see it in our surroundings itself. When I was a kid I never had an idea about how a computer will look like. I was in 8th standard when I first touched one. The situation is completely different now as each and every person is exposed to this media especially our young generation. All of them are very familiar with computers and understand the basics of it very easily.
Since we are looking forward to future, we can discuss about the digital media and young generation. Young people and our school going children are more attached to this media because it keeps them connected with their world. There are many benefits due to the digital media influence these days. Schools themselves are promoting the usage of it keeping in mind that the outside world is running in this media. Many schools in India especially international schools in India are providing diverse courses in their curriculum to teach computer and its hardware.
The digital revolution has facilitated the children in various ways as it reduced the hardships of studies through a variety of illustrations and it lightened the work by a range of options. There are many schools in Hyderabad who made IT as one of their core teaching subjects keeping in mind the peculiarity of the place as it is one of the major IT hubs of the country. Oakridge International School in Hyderabad is considered as the largest international school in India. It offers students world class infrastructure and other facilities with proficient teachers to guide the students. The school gives importance to subjects related to computers as much as other topics. They frequently organize workshops with expertise in this subject to create awareness and interest among the students towards the subject.
But along with the positive facilities this media also have some negative aspects. It creates laziness in the students to do their work their own and leaves no space for proper research as they have inbuilt templates. Other than this the misuse of this media is becoming a severe issue and sometimes it even crosses the limit. One thing need to be understood is that computers are developed for working as the helping hand to individuals in all their work and it depends on us that how we are using and manipulating it.
