Bottom-Up Technology Transmission Within Families: Exploring How Youths Influence Their Parents' Digital Media Use

Bottom-Up Technology Transmission Within Families: Exploring How Youths Influence Their Parents' Digital Media Use | Educommunication | Scoop.it
This study investigated the bottom-up technology transmission process in a country with varied levels of technology diffusion, such as Chile. It explored to what extent children teach their parents how to use digital media and proposed a typology of factors related to this process. By relying on a mixed-methods design—which combined interviews with an original survey—and dyadic data, it found that the transmission occurs for all the technologies investigated, although children's influence should not be overstated. This process was more likely to occur among women and people from lower socioeconomic status, and it was also associated with less authoritarian parents and more fluid parent–child interactions.

O ser humano como funcionário de suas tecnologias

"A técnica, comumente considerada uma “ferramenta” à disposição do ser humano, tornou-se, hoje, o verdadeiro “sujeito” da história; o ser humano executa o papel de “funcionário” de seus equipamentos, cumpre aquelas ações descritas e prescritas no rol de “tarefas” das ferramentas e coloca sua personalidade entre parênteses em favor da funcionalidade. Se, então, a técnica passou a ser o sujeito da história e o ser humano seu servo obediente, o humanismo pode ser dado por concluído, e as categorias humanísticas, que até agora nós adotamos para ler a história, se tornam insuficientes para interpretar a época iniciada com a era da técnica"

Alone Together by Sherry Turkle

Alone Together by Sherry Turkle | Educommunication | Scoop.it

Computers no longer wait for humans to project meaning onto them. Now, sociable robots meet our gaze, speak to us, and learn to recognize us. They ask us to take care of them; in response, we imagine that they might care for us in return. (...)

But this is not a book about robots. Rather, it is about how we are changed as technology offers us substitutes for connecting with each other face-to-face. We are offered robots and a whole world of machine-mediated relationships on networked devices.
