• An Introduction
Would that be possible to stay away from our technology’s devices for just a day? The answer for this question will bring a lot of negative answers, and of course if we ask this question in a survey, “NO” will be the winner of this survey. Talking about the use of technology reminded me one of the sources from my annotated bibliography by Amy Petersen, who is the Theatre and Media Arts Department Chair and Associate Professor in the College of Fine Arts and Communications at Brigham Young University. In her article which she wrote about the overuse of tech in our daily life and its affects, she said “If you would have told me a few years ago that I would feel completely ...view middle of the document...
The intended audience for my research paper will be general audience, but I will be trying to send this message to the educational faculties, and parents. The reason why I want to get the attentions of teachers and parents is because they can play a very good rule in changing minds of our new generation about the use of technology and its side effects. Even though my research will manually focus on the negative side of the technology, but my impaling propose will be to show the negative effect of technology to my intended audience so they can distinguish the good and the bad use of technology in their lives.
The reason why I choice to write about this research question rather than writing about my others two research question is because technology’s violence and technology’s effects on our societies are becoming a widely controversial issue. Taking a part in this controversial issue and uncovering the effect of technology on our lives will be interesting. Furthermore, by researching my research question and making annotated bibliography I personal learned a lot. Continuing with more research to make my proposal and my research paper will be another good addition to my knowledge. On the other hand, as I mentioned that technology has several effects on our societies and of course on our new generation, this will be also a very interesting and useful information for my audience.
• Review of sources
For supporting my thesis for my research paper, I stream a lot of collages and universities websites, and read bench of articles about the changes in our societies which are caused by technology. As it appeared in my annotated bibliography most of my sources are form educational websites. The reasons why I focused on the educational websites or educational domains, because most of the educational faculties detected the recent effects’ of technology in our life. On top of general educational websites, Riosalado library was also a very good bank of information for my research paper. Namely, I used (Opposing Viewpoints, CQ Researcher, and EBSCO HOST database) from Riosalado’s library in my research paper.
In my personal opinion, every aspects’ of authors is very important when it comes to choosing sources’ authors for a research paper. For instance, since I am trying to approach parents (Father and Mother) and teachers (s/he) gender of the supporting sources’ authors for my research paper is very important. To better argue for my argument and convince my audience, I should provide strong support by males and females scholars. The above conclusion persuaded me to choice sources from meals and females authors for my research paper. Furthermore, as I mentioned above most of my sources are from educational websites, therefore, the authors for those sources are highly educational faculties or researchers. For instance, one of the source which I came around is written by multiple authors “ Kaveri Subrahmanyam, Robert E, and Kraut Patricia M,” all of these...
