In­ter­net Ex­po­sure

Slogan - - Who Said That! -

In this era of dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion, smart­phones are avail­able to ev­ery­one. Though most schools pro­hibit the use of a phone dur­ing classes, we see stu­dents us­ing them all the time. When stu­dents are so ad­dicted to their smart­phones, the fu­ture looks scary.

A 2018 sur­vey by the Na­tional Academy for Ed­u­ca­tional Man­age­ment re­vealed how so­cial me­dia use has rapidly grown. Around 29.5 per­cent of stu­dents are ad­dicted to us­ing so­cial me­dia dur­ing their school hours. Some are even be­com­ing ad­dicted to watch­ing pornog­ra­phy which changes their habits and way of think­ing.

It is high time peo­ple re­alise this ma­jor prob­lem and come up with pos­si­ble mea­sures to stop chil­dren from ex­ces­sive use of the in­ter­net.
