In the meantime, the most interesting form of innovative technologies areintroduced from the outside of the government, namely the private sector, civilsociety and individual citizens. Empowered with more and more data, theystarted thinking truly out of the box and offering various “governmenthacks”. In this paper we are mainly focusing on the role of teachers and parentsin the digitalization. Keywords:Digital Technology, Acceptable Use Policy, Use Internet Safely, InnovativeTechnologies, Government Hacks. INTRODUCTION Digital technologies are a big data andprognostic analytics are having a significant impact upon professionalpractices at individual, organisational, national and international levels.
Webelieve that it’s our responsibility to use technology in a way that doesn’tharm others and to be responsive of the impact that technology has our health, environmentand society at large. The interplay of code, algorithms and big data areincreasingly all encircling in the governing, leadership. Technology is part ofour daily lives, we have an obligation to use it and share it responsibly. OBJECTIVE *Role of teachers and parents indigital responsibility will improve the character, health and education of thestudents.
*Digital responsibility will givebright future for the students. NEEDFOR THE STUDY As newer generations are born intoa world where technology is so intricately woven throughout our lives, it isbecoming increasingly significant that young children start to learn “digitalresponsibility”. Learning in a digital world has made learning both extremelysimple and infinitely complex at the same time. SCOPEOF THE STUDY Parents are the main gatekeepersand managers of their teens’ internet experience. As parents are the most frequentlycited source of advice and the biggest influence on teens’ understanding ofappropriate and inappropriate digital behaviour. Parents are also responsible forkeeping their teens safe online and offline and have a number of tools at theirdisposal to do so. They can also take concrete steps to monitor or make sure upon their teen’s online activities.
1. Talk with your childabout ways to use the internet and cell phones safely.2. Talk with your child about ways to behavetoward other people online or on the phone.3. Talk with your childwhat kinds of things should and should not be shared online or on a cell phone. 4. Check which websites your child visited.
5. Use parental controls to restrict your child’suse of their cell phone. In our digital world teachers havebecome guides, mentors, role models, counsellors, and facilitators. They mustglobal citizens, ethics experts, and different critical thinkers. Teacher holdssome very critical roles in the modern innovative classroom that relate tothese tenets. 1. An understanding of technology and its profit/dangers to students.
2. Moral and ethical modelling that helpsstudents attain success and safety in online and offlineenvironments.3.
practice with manymedium of technology and communication. In the intervening time, the most excitingform of innovative technologies are introduced from the outside of thegovernment, namely the private sector, civil society and individual citizens.Empowered with more and more facts, they started thinking truly out of the boxand offering various “government hacks”. BENEFITS Parenting in the modern age can be awe-inspiringat times. Internet use can offer our families a lot of benefits. With a littleeffort and well-thought out choices, it is possible to harness our technologyto support families bonds and connections. Parents who similar technology toour children will be able to empower our kids to safely use the internet and hookup the family. Turn to the internet for tutorials, explanations, and resourcesto help to connect with tutor.
Making use of technology to allow students thefreedom to find out solutions to problems both independently andcollaboratively are a force for good. As educators teachers struggle forstudents to engage with our subject beyond a exterior level. Technology placesthe world in the hands of every student inside the limits of classroom.
Thereare many ways in which technology can be used in the classroom to connect instudents and facilitate exciting, engaging and interesting lessons. Allowingyourself the chance to do something new and using technology as the tool canopen up a crave of treasures that hooks the attention of the student and oncethey have that it can lead them anywhere. Learning is a procedure and it ispart of our daily lives. Modern technology has made it easy for students tolearn from anywhere through online education and mobile education. Alsostudents now use modern technology in classrooms to learn better. For example,students use iPods to share visual lessons and examples with peers in theclassroom. This has made learning more convenient and admirer.
Also new moderneducational technologies support individual learning which gives a possibilityto students to learn on their own with no need of tutors. Technology has becomevery easy to get access to related information at anytime anywhere. This hasbeen achievable because of modern technologies like broadband internet. Sincetechnology is challenging, it sparks the brain to toil to its full potential.Modern technology has blessed us with superior communication technology tools.
It gives us knowledge and information. The use of technology is increased dayby day, we all depend on technology and we use various technologies to achievespecific tasks in our lives. Today,fast-moving and developing trends in digital technologies are leading to aradical change in citizen expectations. Citizens are altering their approach tointeracting with, and relating to, government organisations and services.
Thenature of these developing interactions is horizontal, empowering andspontaneous. In many ways, the accurate opposite of the traditionalhierarchical, bureautic and rules based systems government developed over thedecades. The fast pace of technology evolution over thepast decades gave us new business models an unprecedented level of globalconnectivity. These developments created enormous volumes of data, which leadto the fast rise of the “data field”.
The new connected world of today isproducing data at a speed that is unprecedented in human history. It is approximatethat today more than 3 billon people are connected to the internet. These 3billon people are producing facts every second of their digital lives. If used successfully,big data can be a powerful tool. Various researchers have found a strong linkbetween valuable data management strategy and financial performance of companiesas it helps them get to market faster with products and services that arebetter aligned with customer needs. It has the same presentation enhancementpotential for the public sector in terms of better policies, more tailoredgovernment services, and more effective and effective distribution ofresources.
It can also lead to negative outcomes if used wrongly. SYMPTOMS Recognizing the signs of technologyaddiction is the all-important first step to getting help and starting on theroad to recovery.1. Feel inattentive withthe internet.
2. Feel restless, moody, unhappyor irritable when attempting to cut down or stop internet use.3. Stay online longer thanoriginally planned.4. Use technology as a wayof escaping problems or relieving feelings of helplessness, guilty, anxiety ordepression.5.
Feel the need to replyimmediately to your smart phone6. Frequently check thephone even when it does not ring or vibrate.7. Feel nervous when awayfrom the device or computer.Physicalsymptoms of technology addiction may include1.
Weight increase orweight loss2. Carpal tunnel syndrome3. Headaches 4. Neck or backaches5. Dry, red eyes ADVANTAGES1.
Teenagers are acquiringnew skills.2. “Text neck” and “I-Padshoulder” will soon turn into a thing of a past as, within 10 years, with”wearable” smart phones we will have far less need to operate screens.
We’ll haveeverything projected in front of our eyes, and use voice commands and handgestures.3. Searching and browsingthe internet exercises the brain effectively and can facilitate older people.4. Information floatsfaster.
5. We have a chance totravel with not even leaving our home. 6. If used accurately,mobile devices and the applications they support will help train students fortheir future careers.7. Integrating technologyinto the classroom is an successful way to connect with students of alllearning styles.8. It gives students the chance to enhance theinteraction with their classmates and instructors by encouraging collaboration.
9. Using technology in theclassroom gives teachers and other faculty members the chance to develop theirstudent’s digital citizenship skills. It’s one thing to use mobile devices,it’s a completely other thing to know how to use them rightly and responsibly.10. Integrating technologyin education helps students stay occupied. Most students today have been usingmobile device like tablets and smart phones to play and learn since they couldcrawl.
So it only seems logical to support today’ class rooms with the thatyour students want and are used to leaning.11. When mobile technologyis readily available and performing correctly in the classroom students areable to access the most up-to-date information faster and easier than everbefore.12.

From learning how to better collaborate across teams and with their instructorstechnology empowers students to be more innovative and be more connected. Newtech has super charged how we learn today. DISADVANTAGESThe usage of phones has increased andbrings out major issues in digital world1. Our circle of friendsas determined by smart phone apps that match us people of similar interestswill come from a narrower cross-section of society, so we’ll have reducedcontact with people of dissimilar interests or beliefs.2. One in three can’t even keep in mind their ownphone numbers. Because we find everything out via Google, we are finding itincreasingly hard to retain information.3.
Four out of five18-30-years old are unable to find the way without a satnav device. Moreover,16 and 17-years-old are lose the skill of joined-up writing. 4. We are finding itharder to focus. A variety of irrelevant stimuli tent to divert us more thanever before.5. We are socializing in adifferent way. Talking in person is “risky” and “awkward”, so texting is favoured.
People are no longer able to read facial expressions.6. The internet isaddictive.7. Experienced web users havea tendency to be deficient in decision-making and short-term memory.8. We are ruder more andmore people are using their smart phone while socializing.9.
Privacy is vanishing quickly.10. Constant communicationis making many of us nervous. With the advancement ofmechanization, teachers are not equally trained with its correct implementation.Thus learners are just using technology instead of getting hold of knowledgefrom it.
Therefore, technology should be combined with this method of teachingto make the learners brain keeps working instead of being totally dependent onthem. It is the human being who builttechnology not the technology that produced a human. As humans are noterror-free, in the same way technology too does not come error-free. There arelots of problems which take oodles of time to troubleshoot it, therefore,hindering the learning process which can sometimes be a matter of disturbanceboth for the learners and educators. With the speeding development oftechnology, the websites higher in search engines, so they only focus onrankings instead of the content that they are posting. The mechanized world is making youmore and more lazy giving all the powers to manage everything by a click ofmouse.
Cheating is an illegal activity but technology made it more powerful andeasy to use with its great and easy to use with its powerful wings. In recent days to keep equal pacewith technology educators are busy in educating the learners with its onlineeducation tools instead of communicating orally that makes them unable to cooperatewith their teachers and share their problems openly to overcome it. Teachersfail to draw student’s concentration.
Every day, scientists come with latestdiscoveries and challenges that keep technology rolling every second.Software’s keep on upgrading and if a teacher does not own technical skills, itbecomes difficult for him to implement it in the right direction. Henceeducators have to be expert in technical skills toor the school has to hiretechnical experts adding additional expenses to their expenditures to overcomethese technical challenges.
Texting to cheat on tests orassignments is an uprising issue in schools, student’s expectations andconsequences should be made absolutely dear in the school or class room AUP (AcceptableUse Policy) concerning cell phone use. FINDINGS From our analysis of the datacollected in the first three phases:1. Risks to the healthsystem2. The risk of developingan unproductive solution for combating the problems identified under the firstpoint;3. The risk to personalvalues introduced through the growth of new technologies. Apart from its effect on ourpsychological and social well being, spending a large portion of the day in frontof a screen can lead to a panoply of physical health issues. Time identifies “computer vision syndrome” asthe complex of problems associated with extreme screen time, includingeyestrain, blurred vision, and dry eyes.
We all know that the internet canbe enormous place for children explore and learn but there are risks attached. SUGESTIONS1. Take breaks, both largeand small. A tech break can be as small as stepping away from your desk to takea short walk from corner to corner the room or as large as declaring atechnology blackout for an entire day each week.2. Examine your motivations.3.
Give your work or leisurespace an ergonomic makeover. A better-placed desk chair or better lighting canmake a vast impact on your physical and emotional well-being.4. Turn off the lights-allof them. To avoid disturbing your sleep rhythms, turn off all your screens anhour or two before you go to bed and give your eyes a rest.5.
Don’t forget to blink!It may sound silly, but we tend to blink less regularly than normal when using acomputer. If this doesn’t help, try using artificial tears.6. Take a 20-20-20 break.As an additional benefit, staring intothe middle distance can be a much-needed break for a tech added mind.7.
Make sure yourworkspace conditions are most favourable. Try to put your computer in a positionwith adequate lighting and minimal glare, about 20 to 40 inches away from youreyes. Also, watch out for air sources near your desk that can dry out youreyes.8. Try a mini-massage.Massaging the muscle around your eyes can help combat weakness and tension.
9. The windows operatingsystem come with the built in capability to protect children by blocking accessto certain types of sites, all the time or certain times of day.CONCLUSION Where there is a light there is gloominess.Technology can make you fly higher and higher and higher in the sky but at thesame time it can even damage your life with its negative features. Technologycan improve your knowledge at the same time it can even lower your grade ineducation.
We should use technologies in a useful manner and we should not useit in a wrong way.REFERENCE The existing collections of generalreference web sites such as the Internet Public Library are useful preliminarypoints in creating Virtual Ready Reference Collection but they don’t addressreference specific, local needs. The process of choosing the best websites fora VRRC will improve the reference librarian’s knowledge.
