Although advances in technology can often make life more efficient, sometimes it can hinder life too, especially for youth. Television and computers are an example of technology that is used every day. This technology can cause many problems for children, whether they are changing the way they act, or causing physical problems. It is up to parents, teachers, or children themselves to try to help solve this problem. In the future, we can only have more technology. But how much technology is too much technology?

In order to succeed in making our website, our group had to overcome some of our diversity. Before we even started, certain students were not thrilled to be in our group as a result of our differences. For example, one of our members has a different religion than the others. Also, some of us have different “social status”. However, after much bickering, we all managed and work together. It wasn’t easy, but we ended up putting our differences aside.
Working as a group in Think Quest has its advantages and disadvantages. One of the main advantages was that you get to work with others so you can put all of your ideas together. This makes the website have more variety in it. Another advantage is that when you have a question about something there is your whole group to assist you. These are the people that know the most about your topic so they will be the ones that can help you the best. Some disadvantages are that sometimes you can have arguments with your teammates. A lot of times you only want to agree with what you think of and not what someone else came up with. Another disadvantage is that you have to rely on people to get some of the work done. If you were to work by yourself, then you would only have to rely on yourself. You can also work at your own pace when you are working alone, but when working in a group you feel either pressured or going too slow on your work. Your teammates may even yell at you to get something done, so you get uncomfortable. In conclusion, working in a group with others has both its disadvantages and advantages.
