Be mobile. Not - in your mobile.
“One key area that appears to have been affected is reflection”, states Marc Prensky in his write-up ‘Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants’. The net has gotten us into the habit of instant gratification. We no longer like to take time by going and reading up in the library. Also, once we get what we want, we don’t think about it and reflect over it, we move on to something else. Reading books (not digital, please), listening to music, sharing time with your parents and grandparents, talking with people face-to-face is something that goes a long way and teaches us more than what the online world has to offer. So keep that darned screen aside and go outside in the open, feel the fresh breeze and the warm sun. Play in the snow or just sit by the pond. This will help you think and ponder over things, make you ask questions, debate on various subjects and most importantly it will also help you think creatively and critically. Our words may not seem to make sense now, but, we quote a line from Boyzone’s song “It’s only words, and words are all I have...” We end by saying please choose to be discreet when online. Be careful and be wise, not otherwise.
