Computers and cellphones have been thought to be a distraction that isolated people from each-other, yet we can now see the valuable benefits that it has brought to people under quarantine to still be able to socialize, learn and facilitate work through webcams, and virtual tools. Has Technology Helped Connect People or Isolate Them?
My final semester at the Illinois Institute of Technology in the United States began under normal circumstances but quickly changed. The emergence of the noval Coronavirus during the middle of the semester caused widespread confusion on how education would continue. My architecture studio class was quick to adapt to being online through Zoom webcam interface. It was strange at first but I quickly adapted and enjoyed the new way of learning. It had it positives and negatives for sure. The convenience of being able to attend class from my home was pretty cool at first.
Being a school with a very large international student population, the ability to connect in real-time with other students across the planet is truly remarkable. Even though I was born into the internet age (in my mid 20s), I still can not comprehend how this technology is even able to exist!
