The objetive of this essay is to discuss if short attention
span is due to technology. In the following lines I am going to write about: how technology affects young people’s life, the advantages of Internet and its main downside.

Nowadays, internet is thought to be the greatest invention of all times for several reasons: instant communication with anyone in the world and gives access to an endless supply of entertainment, knowledge and information.

Nevertheless, they have a negative impact on learning, as it is said in the article, we live in a hyper-stimulating world, because of this more and more learners have problems to concentrate in a chalk-and-talk lesson. Schools have tried to solve this banning mobile phones, but as we can see this has not solved anything.

It is an open secret that they also have a negative impact on young people’s social life. There are a big number of studies carried out by psychologists that say that people who spend a lot of time alone using internet and technology may have low communication skills. This is due to the fact that they spend so much time communicating remotely with people rather than face-to-face.

To conclude, I would add that I reckon that having attention depend on each person and even if teachers made their classes more amusing, students would not pay more attention.
