Who are we ,what are we doing and why are we doing it?
Introducing to you our group DAINDOW DORNADO which consist of
We are the Sec 1 students from 1-05 and we are working on our topic “Are SST students addicted to their Smartphone thus having FOMO?
- Henry Lee Jun (11)
- Marcus Choy (09)
- Wong Zhen Yang (24)
We have chosen this topic as most of us do have smartphones regardless of the brand of them. Our parents sometimes say that we are spending too much time on it when our grades drop in our tests or examinations. And we can’t help but agree sometimes as we use up time that could have been used for us to study and revise our homework. But on the other hand, there may also be some good points of using our smartphones, such as keeping in touch with the friends you already have, even though you may not be in the same class or school as him/her.
- Possible reasons for problems related to using smartphones are spending too much time in front of it and playing games that are on the app store when they could be studying or spend time with their family.
- The advantages are students can keep in touch with their friends, ask them about homework using the chat function, even ask teachers what they want us to bring for the lessons the very next day
Well, before we continue, we might need to clarify a few questions such that we are think on the same level. So..
WHAT IS SMARTPHONE ADDICTION?:
SmartPhone addiction is an addiction, of a particular mobile phone called a smartphone, it has many applications for people to enjoy, like gaming and most importantly social media apps, they will check their apps for updates which are not important. People will often be addicted to smartphones than other media devices other than a computer, as a smartphone can do almost anything than a computer and it is pocket-friendly and portable, the inbuilt wifi provides more convenience.
WHAT ARE SMARTPHONES?
A smartphone is a mobile phone built on a mobile operating system, with more advanced computing capability and connectivity than a feature phone. Later models added the functionality of portable media players, low-end compact digital cameras, pocket video cameras, and GPS navigation units to form one multi-use device. Many modern smartphones also include high-resolution touch screens and web browsers that display standard web pages as well as mobile-optimized sites.
The phones are equipped with the capability of going online
WHAT IS ADDICTION AND FOMO?
People with an addiction do not have control over what they are doing or using. Their addiction may reach a point at which it is harmful. Addictions do not only include physical things we consume, such as drugs or alcohol, but may include virtually anything, such abstract things as gambling to seemingly harmless products, such as chocolate.
FOMO, or the “Fear of Missing Out,” is something many of us have experienced. It happens when we start to feel nervous about not taking part in social events.
FOMO can contribute to anxiety and depression but, at the same time, there may actually be some perks to people’s fears about missing out.
