Read the following passage carefully, then answer the questions that follow:
Have you ever walked down streets and noticed that almost every single person is walking with their face down watching a screen? It seems that technology has taken over our lives today! Kids aren't getting outside and playing anymore so they don't have any imagination. Too much technology in our lives means that we don't have real conversations. Technology makes us stressed and frustrated so it's time that we took a break
Children today don't have any imagination. They spend so much time looking at a screen and playing games that they no longer have the skills needed to be creative and have fun without technology. All this time spent sitting down using phones or tablets is definitely bad for their health. Kids should be out in the fresh air, running around and having fun, not shut in a dark, dreary room staring at a screen.
Technology is causing harm to friends and families because they don't have time to mi conversations together. Instead of having real conversation, we are having fake conversation using social media. This means that we aren't really showing each other our true selves. Is it really hard to put down the phone and have a proper conversation with someone?
Overall, it is very clear that our lives could be much better with less technology, Instead of playing computer games and using social media, children could get outside in beautiful fresh air and enjoy the sunlight. They could be healthier and fitter. This kind of technology is unfortunately stopping people from connecting with each other.
