impact upon professional practices at individual, organisational, national and
international levels. The interplay of code, algorithms and big data are

important to teach our students how the digitalization works for others
appropriately. Since technology can be misrepresented if not appropriately used
which can dangerous to students and therefore it is critical to understand best
practices of usage of internet platforms. Parents should teach their child’s
how to use internet and gadgets safely. Parents can contribute to increasing
awareness about digital citizenship among students. Parents groups can organize
a learning event that will bring alertness to the available online tools to
help them keep their kids safe, and other information’s on digital parenting.
In the meantime, the most interesting form of innovative technologies are
introduced from the outside of the government, namely the private sector, civil
society and individual citizens. Empowered with more and more data, they
started thinking truly out of the box and offering various “government
hacks”. In this paper we are mainly focusing on the role of teachers and parents
in the digitalization.
Digital Technology, Acceptable Use Policy, Use Internet Safely, Innovative
Technologies, Government Hacks. INTRODUCTION Digital technologies are a big data and
prognostic analytics are having a significant impact upon professional
practices at individual, organisational, national and international levels. We
believe that it’s our responsibility to use technology in a way that doesn’t
harm others and to be responsive of the impact that technology has our health, environment
and society at large. The interplay of code, algorithms and big data are
increasingly all encircling in the governing, leadership. Technology is part of
our daily lives, we have an obligation to use it and share it responsibly. OBJECTIVE *Role of teachers and parents in
digital responsibility will improve the character, health and education of the
students. *Digital responsibility will give
bright future for the students. NEED
FOR THE STUDY As newer generations are born into
a world where technology is so intricately woven throughout our lives, it is
becoming increasingly significant that young children start to learn “digital
responsibility”. Learning in a digital world has made learning both extremely
simple and infinitely complex at the same time. SCOPE
OF THE STUDY Parents are the main gatekeepers
and managers of their teens’ internet experience. As parents are the most frequently
cited source of advice and the biggest influence on teens’ understanding of
appropriate and inappropriate digital behaviour. Parents are also responsible for
keeping their teens safe online and offline and have a number of tools at their
disposal to do so. They can also take concrete steps to monitor or make sure up
on their teen’s online activities.1.
Talk with your child
about ways to use the internet and cell phones safely.2.
Talk with your child about ways to behave
toward other people online or on the phone.3.
Talk with your child
what kinds of things should and should not be shared online or on a cell phone.
4. Check which websites your child visited. 5. Use parental controls to restrict your child’s
use of their cell phone. In our digital world teachers have
become guides, mentors, role models, counsellors, and facilitators. They must

BENEFITS Parenting in the modern age can be awe-inspiring
at times. Internet use can offer our families a lot of benefits. With a little
effort and well-thought out choices, it is possible to harness our technology
to support families bonds and connections. Parents who similar technology to
our children will be able to empower our kids to safely use the internet and hook
up the family. Turn to the internet for tutorials, explanations, and resources
to help to connect with tutor. Making use of technology to allow students the
freedom to find out solutions to problems both independently and
collaboratively are a force for good. As educators teachers struggle for
students to engage with our subject beyond a exterior level. Technology places
the world in the hands of every student inside the limits of classroom. There
are many ways in which technology can be used in the classroom to connect in
students and facilitate exciting, engaging and interesting lessons. Allowing
yourself the chance to do something new and using technology as the tool can
open up a crave of treasures that hooks the attention of the student and once
they have that it can lead them anywhere. Learning is a procedure and it is
part of our daily lives. Modern technology has made it easy for students to
learn from anywhere through online education and mobile education. Also
students now use modern technology in classrooms to learn better. For example,
students use iPods to share visual lessons and examples with peers in the
classroom. This has made learning more convenient and admirer. Also new modern
educational technologies support individual learning which gives a possibility
to students to learn on their own with no need of tutors. Technology has become
very easy to get access to related information at anytime anywhere. This has
been achievable because of modern technologies like broadband internet. Since
technology is challenging, it sparks the brain to toil to its full potential.
Modern technology has blessed us with superior communication technology tools.
It gives us knowledge and information. The use of technology is increased day
by day, we all depend on technology and we use various technologies to achieve
specific tasks in our lives. Today,
fast-moving and developing trends in digital technologies are leading to a
radical change in citizen expectations. Citizens are altering their approach to
interacting with, and relating to, government organisations and services. The
nature of these developing interactions is horizontal, empowering and
spontaneous. In many ways, the accurate opposite of the traditional
hierarchical, bureautic and rules based systems government developed over the
decades. The fast pace of technology evolution over the
past decades gave us new business models an unprecedented level of global
connectivity. These developments created enormous volumes of data, which lead
to the fast rise of the “data field”. The new connected world of today is
producing data at a speed that is unprecedented in human history. It is approximate
that today more than 3 billon people are connected to the internet. These 3
billon people are producing facts every second of their digital lives. If used successfully,
big data can be a powerful tool. Various researchers have found a strong link
between valuable data management strategy and financial performance of companies
as it helps them get to market faster with products and services that are
better aligned with customer needs. It has the same presentation enhancement
potential for the public sector in terms of better policies, more tailored
government services, and more effective and effective distribution of
resources. It can also lead to negative outcomes if used wrongly. SYMPTOMS Recognizing the signs of technology

is making many of us nervous. With the advancement of
mechanization, teachers are not equally trained with its correct implementation.
Thus learners are just using technology instead of getting hold of knowledge
from it. Therefore, technology should be combined with this method of teaching
to make the learners brain keeps working instead of being totally dependent on
them. It is the human being who built
technology not the technology that produced a human. As humans are not
error-free, in the same way technology too does not come error-free. There are
lots of problems which take oodles of time to troubleshoot it, therefore,
hindering the learning process which can sometimes be a matter of disturbance
both for the learners and educators. With the speeding development of
technology, the websites higher in search engines, so they only focus on
rankings instead of the content that they are posting. The mechanized world is making you
more and more lazy giving all the powers to manage everything by a click of
mouse. Cheating is an illegal activity but technology made it more powerful and
easy to use with its great and easy to use with its powerful wings. In recent days to keep equal pace
with technology educators are busy in educating the learners with its online
education tools instead of communicating orally that makes them unable to cooperate
with their teachers and share their problems openly to overcome it. Teachers
fail to draw student’s concentration. Every day, scientists come with latest
discoveries and challenges that keep technology rolling every second.
Software’s keep on upgrading and if a teacher does not own technical skills, it
becomes difficult for him to implement it in the right direction. Hence
educators have to be expert in technical skills toor the school has to hire
technical experts adding additional expenses to their expenditures to overcome
these technical challenges. Texting to cheat on tests or
assignments is an uprising issue in schools, student’s expectations and
consequences should be made absolutely dear in the school or class room AUP (Acceptable
Use Policy) concerning cell phone use. FINDINGS From our analysis of the data
collected in the first three phases:1.
Risks to the health
The risk of developing
an unproductive solution for combating the problems identified under the first
The risk to personal
values introduced through the growth of new technologies. Apart from its effect on our
psychological and social well being, spending a large portion of the day in front
of a screen can lead to a panoply of physical health issues. Time identifies “computer vision syndrome” as
the complex of problems associated with extreme screen time, including
eyestrain, blurred vision, and dry eyes. We all know that the internet can
be enormous place for children explore and learn but there are risks attached. SUGESTIONS1.
Take breaks, both large
and small. A tech break can be as small as stepping away from your desk to take
a short walk from corner to corner the room or as large as declaring a
technology blackout for an entire day each week.2.
Examine your motivations.
Give your work or leisure
space an ergonomic makeover. A better-placed desk chair or better lighting can
make a vast impact on your physical and emotional well-being.4.
Turn off the lights-all
of them. To avoid disturbing your sleep rhythms, turn off all your screens an
hour or two before you go to bed and give your eyes a rest.5.
Don’t forget to blink!
It may sound silly, but we tend to blink less regularly than normal when using a
computer. If this doesn’t help, try using artificial tears.6.
Take a 20-20-20 break.
As an additional benefit, staring into
the middle distance can be a much-needed break for a tech added mind.7.
Make sure your
workspace conditions are most favourable. Try to put your computer in a position
with adequate lighting and minimal glare, about 20 to 40 inches away from your
eyes. Also, watch out for air sources near your desk that can dry out your

Where there is a light there is gloominess.
Technology can make you fly higher and higher and higher in the sky but at the
same time it can even damage your life with its negative features. Technology
can improve your knowledge at the same time it can even lower your grade in
education. We should use technologies in a useful manner and we should not use
it in a wrong way.REFERENCE The existing collections of general
reference web sites such as the Internet Public Library are useful preliminary
points in creating Virtual Ready Reference Collection but they don’t address
reference specific, local needs. The process of choosing the best websites for
a VRRC will improve the reference librarian’s knowledge.
