Lisully Ramirez ENG 070 Professor Strong 15 December 2016 Ted Talks In this video Sherry Turkle talks about the strong bond people have with their phones and technology, the way people depend on it. How things keep changing, as more and more time goes by. How the children of this era are so dependant on technology to communicate with others, when they could be in the same room as them. How people don’t have genuine conversations anymore, because they get satisfaction from the feedback they get from a computer or phone screen. To a certain extent this is true, it depends who you associate yourself with but I’ve noticed it is more common amongst the younger generation. Personally I know a lot of moms that rely on their phone to either distract their children, use it to make them happy, or make them behave. Of course this does not apply to every single parent, and this doesn’t just apply to every single kid. This is just an example of what I see on a daily basis. It can be controversial, although technology benefits lives greatly, it can go a bit too far.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
