The academic performance of students in olden day was golden. Students knew the essence of education and made effort to achieve excellence. Reading whatever material, they came across not only help in their mental development but also made them self-reliant and confident. Students burned the midnight oil in order to make good grades and to come out of school as a better people.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of students today . Whatever students achieved in the past is considered archaic. The emergence of improve technology has bedeviled the society. Students prefer staying in touch with their friends and loved ones. The use of social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and Instagram has taken over their entire being. Reading useful material like dairies, storybooks, and others is now a thing of the past.
The negative influence or social media has deprived students of achieving excellence. Examination malpractices, mass failure in examination and bad bad language have become the order of the day.
Modern technology has its own benefit. In addition to serving as a great tool for Businesses,it enables students to access information easily. What more, It enables easy interaction between friends and loved ones. As much as these are important, students should realize that good moral practice, education and reading, the future remains blurred. Students can eradicate the negative effects of modern technology has on them if only they remain focused on their academic work.
