Troppa tecnologia fa male Diversi sono gli studi che mettono in luce come un utilizzo eccessivo delle nuove tecnologie abbia effetti negativi, tra i più disparati. Secondo uno studio presso della Kent State University in Ohio condotto su 500 giovani da Jacob Barkley, Aryn Karpinski e Andrew Lepp e pubblicato sulla rivista Computers in Human Behavior, un utilizzo troppo frequente del cellulare farebbe diventare ansiosi riducendo il livello di felicità, e influisce negativamente anche sullo studio. La tecnologia usata male produrrebbe effetti negativi anche sulla memoria: scattare ripetutamente foto di luoghi, viaggi o eventi ne ridurrebbe la capacità mnemonica di serbarli. Ciò perché non ci si concentrerebbe ad osservarli, rassicurati dalla possibilità di poter immortalarli in fotografia. È dimostrato da uno studio condotto da Linda Henkel della Fairfield University, pubblicato su Psychological Science. Ancor più gravi sembrerebbero essere gli effetti che l’utilizzo di social network avrebbe sui bambini e ragazzi: in particolare, la pratica ormai diffusissima di adolescenti ( e non solo) di postare proprie foto, spesso ritoccate, in cui appaiono particolarmente attraenti, in forma e alla moda, avrebbe un’influenza negativa su ragazzi e ragazze, spingendoli, ancora una volta, a voler uniformarsi ad uno standard estetico ed esponendoli, in questo modo, a disturbi psicologici, comportamentali e dell’alimentazione, oltre che a depressione e frustrazione. La ricerca, condotta dall’American University di Washington, è stata pubblicata sulla rivista Cyberpsychology, Behavior and Social Networking.

much technology is badThere are several studies that highlight how an excessive use of new technologies has negative effects. According to a study at Kent State University in Ohio conducted on 500 young by Jacob Barkley, Aryn Karpinski and Andrew Lepp and published in the journal Computers in Human Behaviour, a too frequent use of mobile phones would make to become anxious reducing the level of happiness, and influence negatively also on the study.  The technology bad used would have negative effects even on the memory: repeatedly taking pictures of places, trips or events would reduce the mnemonic ability.  This is because there would be focused to observe them, reassured by the chance to immortalize them in photography. It is shown by a study conducted by Linda Henkel of Fairfield University, published on Psychological Science. Even more serious would seem to be the effects that the use of social networks would have on children and young people: in particular, the widespread practice of teenagers (and not only) to post their photos, often retouched, where they appear particularly attractive, and fashion, would have a negative influence on boys and girls, pushing them, once again, to want to conform to an aesthetic standard and exposing them, in this way, at psychological, behavioural and nutritional disorders, as well as depression and frustration. The research, conducted by the American University of Washington, was published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior and Social Networking.

Trop de technologie fait malIl y a différents études qui mettent en évidence comme une jouissance excessive des nouvelles technologies ait des effets négatifs, entre le plus disparates. Selon une étude près au Kent State University en Ohio, menée sur 500 jeunes par Jacob Barkley, Aryn Karpinski et Andrew Lepp et publié sur le magazine Computers in Human Behaviour, une jouissance trop fréquente du portable elle ferait devenir anxieux en réduisant le niveau de bonheur, et elle influe aussi négativement sur l’étude. La technologie mal utilisée, elle produirait aussi des effets négatifs sur la mémoire: faire plusieurs fois photos des lieux, voyages ou événements en réduirait la capacité mnémonique. Ceci parce qu’il ne se concentrerait pas à les observer, te rassurer par la possibilité de pouvoir les immortaliser en photographie. Il est montré par une étude menée de Linda Henkel du Fairfield University, publié sur Psychological Science. Encore plus graves ils sembleraient être les effets qui la jouissance de réseau social aurait sur les enfants et les garçons: en particulier, la pratique très diffuse maintenant entre les adolescents (et non seulement) de poster propres photos, souvent retouchez, dans lequel ils apparaissent particulièrement attrayants, en forme et à la mode, elle aurait une influence négative sur garçons et filles, en les poussant, encore une fois, à vouloir se conformer à un standard esthétique et en les exposant, de cette manière, aux dérangements psychologiques, comportementaux et de l’alimentation, au-delà qu’à dépression et frustration. La recherche, menée par l’American University de Washington, elle a été publiée sur le magazine Cyberpsychology, Behavior and Social Networking.
