Humans now benefit from new technologies. For example, the invention of Internet makes information more accessible, and the maglevs make trips convenient and easy. While enjoying the convenience of new technologies, many people insist that technology has made children less creative, because everything is so easy now that children do not want to accomplish something by themselves. Nevertheless, I believe that technology makes children more creative than they were in the past. It is true that the convenience of technology makes people indolent. Since my mother bought a new cleaning robot, she has never set time to clean the floor. The technology can not only replace physical labor, but the mental work too. Before, people need to record items on paper by hand and calculate recorded data later, they use Excel to document now, and then, this software can provide all statistic results you need. Thereby people do not need to calculate numbers by themselves. However, whether this process will make children less creative? I do not think so.
First, when the simple work has been completed by technology, children do not need to waste time on these useless and repetitive tasks anymore. Instead, they can pay more attention to accomplishing new ideas which makes them more creative. For example, my nephew is learning about making robots. When I was young, it is hard to imagine to make my own robot because I had to do a lot of basic calculations and experiments for the preparation, which took too much time. However, I find my nephew use a computer with a newly developed software to solve the basic calculations and stimulate experiments on the computer. All he needs to do is to input parameters and click on a mouse, and then he gets the results. With these results, he can devote himeself into robot’s real-making process and build that robot quickly. It is wonderful that new technology helps him prepare and set time for him to do something creative.
