      That’s a really good question. Technology can enable us to do so many wonderful things, and we have learnt a lot through its uses. Technology is used in many different fields – think about the machines which now help us to identify criminals from DNA, or the very accurate robotics which can help during surgeries. We can gain a lot of information through the use of technology, however there are some downsides too – and privacy is one of them. Sometimes it is hard to know who is on the other side of the computer, and it is important that we keep ourselves safe when using it.

      I think that technology is very good for us for the most part! I think there’s technology used in almost everything we do to some extent these days from riding trains to buying lunch, different forms of tech have helped us build amazing societies all over the planet. I think however we’ve made a few rash decisions on some technology uses and we have left ourselves with some damage to our planet that we need to repair. Technology I hope can provide the answer to some of these problems. In terms of the social element of society I think some elements of tech such as phones and computers are becoming a distraction form proper, honest and healthy interactions between people.

      Technology if used correctly must be good for our future, especially if it is harnessed in such a way to study, monitor and help create a good balance ecologically for the planet
