TECHNOLOGY ADDICTION

This course is a kind of teacher training course which aims to support school staff with the understanding of the reasons underneath the technology addiction at schools, ways of creating a more peaceful atmosphere to enhance more prosperous learning and teaching process by using technology effectively

There is new concern about recognizing technology addiction behavior and getting aware of related problems and giving an overview on preventing the technology addiction at schools and establishing a more World-wide working path to overcome this problem

The most effective ways to prevent or lessen technology addiction require school administrators’ commitment and intensive effort; police interested in increasing school safety and strategies can use their influence to encourage schools to address the problem.

Since the emergence of the internet and smartphones, research is showing an increase in the number of people struggling with technology addiction. Constantly being “plugged in” to social media and the internet leads to fear of missing out and fear of being left out in young people. Coupled with the neurological changes that take place in the brain while being online, technology addiction can be added to the list of behavioral addictions.

Our modern world is characterized by increasing connectivity and technology use. However, some teens and young adults cross from normal use into a realm in which their technology use is having a negative impact on school, work, family, and social life. Technology addiction includes an addiction to video games, social networking, and surfing the web, among other things.

Technology addiction falls into the category of compulsive behavior that it is difficult or impossible to simply abstain from, like food or sex addictions. Thus, treatment for technology addiction involves educating teens and young adults about what is happening in their brains and bodies, recognizing the consequences of their compulsion, helping them to set limits and interrupt the compulsive cycle, and find alternatives.

Technology addiction is widespread and perhaps the most underreported problem at school in Europe and in the World as a whole. Contrary to popular belief, technology addiction occurs more often at school than on the way to and from there. Once thought of as simply a rite of passage or relatively harmless behavior that helps build young people’s character, technology addiction is now known to have long-lasting harmful effects, for both the victim and school environment.

International research suggests that technology addiction is common at schools and occurs at all grade levels and must be created some strategies and school policies by schoolteachers. Recovery from technology addiction is possible, and we are here to help. with this training course.
