Did you know 127 new devices connect to the internet every second? That’s more than 10 million new connections a day. Whether it’s in our personal lives or our professional lives, technology is present in almost every aspect. But how does technology influence and affect our lives positively? It influences the way we conduct business and the way we interact with others. Thanks to technology, we’re able to easily communicate with others, access information and make informed decisions. Here are five ways on how technology affects our daily lives.
1. Easier communication
Technology has provided so many different ways to communicate with others. Whether it’s by text, email, phone or social media, exchanging information with one another is quick and easy. Think about it. In the past, it used to take days, sometimes weeks to exchange information through letters. Now, you can send someone a text or an email in a few seconds.
2. More accessible information
Just as it’s easier to communicate with others, it’s also easier to access information. The internet has allowed us to search for information in a matter of seconds. Thousands of resources are available via online platforms and mobile apps making it convenient for anyone to find the information they need.
3. Better opportunities for learning
Online resources and technological tools have made it possible for people to learn anytime and anywhere. If someone wants to pursue an education, they can now do it from the comfort of their own home. Technology has provided us with more flexibility, convenience and access to educational resources that weren’t available prior to the digital age.
4. Smarter healthcare
Technology has modernized the healthcare industry. Hospital and medical procedures are much faster and more efficient. Before technology, we would have to wait in a waiting room to see a doctor. Now, we can schedule an appointment from anywhere using our mobile device. In some instances, we don’t even have to physically go to the doctor’s office – we can simply schedule a video call.
5. Increased productivity
Technology has vastly increased productivity–especially in the workplace. Automated tools and data-driven insights have allowed us to streamline repetitive tasks and make informed decisions. Technology takes care of mundane tasks and frees up time to focus on more pressing projects. This allows us to work more efficiently and maximize productivity.
