Mobiles & technology are considered as the exploiters of innocent childhood. The development of mobiles and internet has resulted in the rampant misuse of these devices among the teenagers. But this revolution in the technology has brought many new and good things for them too. In order to keep pace with the fast moving life, technology plays a very important role in making one updated to the happenings of the world. The modern world has started changing its attitude towards the same and has now started taking the technology as a medium to improve the standard of our lives.

In yet another move aimed at exploiting mobile network to propagate its activities, Punjab education department has decided to use SMS (text messages) services to guide students and their parents about subject combinations, examination schedule and prospect of particular professional courses. The education department has set in motion the process to give career guidance to 20,000 students of government schools in the first phase. An exercise has already been launched to generate mobile numbers of parents of the students. With this step towards modernization and globalization, Punjab has become the first state in the country which has decided to impart career guidance to the students through SMS services.

A step towards a better tomorrow

The education minister of Punjab, Sh. Daljit Singh Cheema has said that, in the first phase, students of Classes X and XII and their parents would be made aware about the courses to opt for during the admission session. He added that students would also be informed about the last date of admission to a particular course along with availability of seats and subjects in various colleges. The department would arrange consultants at the district and block levels to impart career guidance to students. He said these consultants would be arranged from master trainers of the education department by providing them special training for this purpose.

This whole process is going to be a landmark in the history of education development and would inspire other states too. Just like a coin has two faces, the technology has its benefits and drawbacks too. It’s all about the human brain that adopts a vision towards a good thing or bad thing.

Because we can’t afford to miss the latest trends!

Watching videos on You Tube has not been the same anymore. The advertisements, subscriptions and of course the different type of content issues with the website obstruct the pleasure of enjoying them. It takes a lot of time to load the videos as the buffering process takes place while we are streaming through it. Apart from all of this, we need to remember the names of popular videos, artists, channels etc. in order to save our time and feel the pleasure of watching our favorites. But this is again a big challenge and we are too lazy to make an effort to note down all the names of the popular websites.

Things have changed in the present scenario; everything has to be quick and fast. We hardly remember the popular videos so we save them in the form of bookmarks or cookies on our system or laptop. But is it really convenient for us? What if we do not want to share it with others and what we have someone else using our computer? Well, there are many problems and issues and none of them have a good solution.
