Debate over double-edged sword of technology

Click HERE

Note the limitations of technology,,,it may solve the probblem at the surface level, but do little to address the root cause, which is our character or attitudes or behaviour...:
-- although the technology may help manage undesirable behaviour, it may not change the mindset that causes the behaviour.

-- "A sense of civic-mindedness has to do with attitudes towards others, which is perhaps better addressed through education at the formal and informal level

--it was important for people to "internalise" social values so that the use of smart devices would not make them careless, irresponsible and lazy.

Qn: 'Despite our rapid technological advancements, we have not improved our lives.’ Do you agree? (CJC Prelim 2016)
