Do children need technology classes or programs?
From overhead projectors to smart boards from pagers to smartphones in today's society, the rapid pace in which technology is evolving to make daily life easier for its citizens is staggering. To meet the demands of the ever-increasing evolution of these technologies, libraries have implemented ways in which to help people learn and use these new technologies. Though recently, many have begun to question whether or not children need such specialized assistance to keep pace with technological advancements, which have benefited our world in immeasurable ways. Unfortunately, these new technologies most often don't come with instructional booklets, and if they do, no one reads them, but you also have the issue of accessibility. Not every child or adult will have the opportunity to own these pricey tech toys that will allow them the chance to be able to learn how to operate and navigate these tech items. We need to prioritize the reality that technology can be turned and used against us. Hackers, thieves, and stalkers can steal identities, use your GPS on your phone and in your cars to track your movements, and drain bank accounts, but that's only the minimal damage they could do to an individual. Our dependence on these machines for everything from our nation's power grid to air traffic control to financial services, if any of these entities were hacked into and destroyed, it could be catastrophic. These aren't situations that only happen in movies. The Northeast blackout of 2003 was a widespread power outage that occurred throughout parts of the Northeastern and the Midwestern United States and the Canadian province of Ontario. If we want children to be individuals that can navigate, create, and understand technology to secure and counter, these threats children must taught the skills to do these things. This is why I firmly believe the answer is: Yes, children do need technology classes and programs.
What are some key elements that make an effective and user-friendly database?
One of the key elements of an effective database is its ability to refine and filter its search parameters. Your search results depending on your keywords will find few references or too many, often irrelevant references to your research topic. You could broaden your search question, use variations in spelling or alternative words, but being able to refine or filter your search results will finetune your results.
