Kids, Technology, and Selfishness: Is There a Link?

Converged communicators in COM3332 (Communication Technology in Contemporary Society) may want to take a look at this link. It’s a column from Jodi Duckert in the Creightonian (the student paper at Creighton University), discussing the connections between technology and selfish, antisocial behavior in children.

It’s worth thinking about, as we evaluate some of the effects that technology may or may not have in our society today. In this opinion piece, the writer suggests that technology tends to fuel greed and an attitude on consumption first for children, while weakening real-world relationships.

Are there ways that you’ve seen this influence in action? Do you agree, disagree, or have any other perspectives on this issue? Feel free to comment if you have any interesting insights.
