The Effects of Technology on The Younger Generations: An Annotated Bibliography

Ives, E. A. (2012, October 1). iGeneration: The Social Cognitive Effects of Digital Technology

on Teenagers. Online Submission.

This article discusses the positives and negatives technology has on children and teens.

This has just what I am looking for because I want to look at both sides of the story and

see if there is more good or bad to the whole equation. The author discusses how

technology has bridged the educational gap but also how it may be damaging to the

development of our brains. This is a reliable source because the author uses 40 references

to back up his evidence. This paper will be extremely helpful to showing both the

positive and the negative effects technology has on children.

I conducted a survey on the effect technology has on children. This survey is a credible

source and has had over fifty people take the survey so far. The ages of people

participating in the survey range from sixteen to over forty years old, that way there are

opinions from many different age groups. In the survey questions were asked about the

appropriate age for children to own their own technological devices and also if

technology has a positive or negative affect on todays youth. This is a reliable source
because it gives the audience a voice and because the reader will get to see the positives

and negatives from all points of view and from a variety of age groups.

These authors talk about not only the positive and negative effects of technology on

children, but they also break down the difference between entertainment media and

educational media that children and teens have access to. Educational media and

entertainment media have different effects because one is meant to help you learn and be

more receptive to learning while the other pretty much fries your brain and does no good.

Entertainment media is just made to be sold, it can often make children more irritable and

violent while educational media helps with human growth. This article is a credible

source because there are over one hundred twenty references and there are multiple

authors, it is also from a peer-reviewed academic journal.

This is a peer-reviewed journal article that discusses how playing video games can affect

children. Multiple authors give their opinions along with evidence when asked questions

on how they believe playing video games affects children positively or negatively. Most

of the authors think it depends on the type of video games the children are playing and

whether they are violent or if they are made to help challenge the childrens thinking and

to overall strengthen their educational skills. This is a reliable source because it asks six

experts with different viewpoints their opinions so the reader gets a wide variety of
information to formulate their own opinion on the topic, from reading facts and opinions

from multiple authors.

Retrieved from https://hbr.org/2012/04/the-mobile-re-generation

This article discusses how reliant children and teens today are on technology. It discusses

all the ways children could be affected, both positively and negatively by technology.

The article even talks about how teenagers and children these days are hiding in a sense

behind a screen and how this may be linked back to why childhood obesity rates are so

high at this point in time. This is a credible, reliable source because it includes facts about

children to show their internet usage and how it affects their way of life.

Cabral, A. R. (2016, August 15). Cyberbullying affects your kids more than you think. Khaleej

Times (7/2008 to 4/2009).

This newspaper article discusses the effects of cyberbullying on children. This shows

some of the more negative effects of technology. This a reliable source because it uses

facts and because it is from a newspaper. The article talks about how cyberbullying can

lead to anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and even suicidal thoughts or tendencies. In

the paper, a study was done that showed how cyberbullying is actually affecting kids

more than people think. This is a useful source for getting legitimate facts and

information on cyberbullying and its affects on children and teens.

Don't forget to organize your annotated bibliography (and reference page) in alphabetical
order. Other than that, this is an excellent annotated bibliography. The sources are documented
well and clearly explained. You did a good job highlighting how each source is credible and how
you plan to use it in your paper. Good work!
