Family bonding with technology（Part 1）
What’s up guys! I’m back once again! I’m not sure if you guys remember what the previous blog is about, but it was about family bonding! If you haven’t read it, do pop over later to learn more!
On today’s blog, I’ll be touching on the topic of family bonding again, but now with the use of technology!
What are the stereotypes society hold on technology?
We often have the impression that many people are glued to their phone. Thus, we engage in fewer human interaction. However, many of us failed to realise that technology only ever changed the way we interact with the outside world.
资源 – Resources 能力
As technology advances, searching for information and meeting people online is extremely convenient. In the past, people had to visit libraries to conduct proper research. Now, we can simply type the relevant keywords and rely on Google search to retrieve the information needed! It’s so much more efficient and convenient right?
Well, this also means that we now have an effective way to learn more about our family members. We can do a search online to understand why certain age groups behave in a certain way.
Another way that technology have bond families together unknowingly is with the camera and video function.
Simply taking a family photo/video together is an act of bringing family members closer!
运动 - Fitness
Do you know that exercising can be a way to strengthen relationships with your family members?
There are many applications available now like Nike Training Club and Strava where you can compare with your family and see who’s the most active. In the market now, there are also fitness watches!
社交平台 Social Media
Finally, we are on the topic of Social Media! There are three main types of applications that I’ll mention and they are social platforms, communication platforms and entertainment.
Do you know that the daily things we share on Facebook and Instagram is actually a way for our family members to get to know us better! Whenever we go overseas alone and miss home, technology has made it possible that we can video call our family members! Lastly, applications like Netflix and YouTube are platforms where we can watch movies and dramas together with our family!
电动游戏 - Video Games
Lastly, is the invention of video games!
There are many products out there like Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox.
There are multiplayer games in these devices which we can play with our family and while playing, we unknowingly build some kind of bond with our family members. Not to mention that along the way, we may create some kind of game languages which only our family members can understand!
