PROBLEMATIC TECHNOLOGY USE IN THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
COVID-19 PANDEMİSİ SÜRECİNDE PROBLEMLİ TEKNOLOJİ KULLANIMI

Mehmet Enes GÖKLER [1] , Şenol TURAN [2]


In order to prevent the spread of the disease within the scope of combating the COVID-19 epidemic, several measures were taken such as temporary closure of workplaces, educational institutions, cultural and entertainment venues, and encouraging for employees working from home. Social isolation, future uncertainty, and financial difficulties as well as fear of illness have increased stress and anxiety all over the world. In crises such as the COVID-19 outbreak, societies use technology more actively to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. While technology enables large groups of people to work from home, it has been the main tool of socializing in this process. While technology provides the entertainment needed, unconscious individuals are at risk of developing problematic usage patterns. The aim of this review is to discuss technology use risks and provide some practical suggestions that can help reduce technology impact.
COVID-19 salgını ile mücadele kapsamında hastalığın yayılımını önlemek amacıyla iş yerlerinin, eğitim kurumlarının, kültür ve eğlence mekanlarının geçici olarak kapatılması, işyerinin çalışanlarını evden çalışmaya teşvik etmesi gibi biri dizi önlemler alındı. Hastalıktan kaynaklanan korkunun yansıra sosyal izolasyon, geleceğe ilişkin belirsizlik ve finansal sıkıntılar, tüm dünyadaki insanların yaşadığı stres ve kaygıyı artırdı. COVID-19 salgını gibi krizlerde toplumlar stres ve kaygıyı azaltmak ve depresyonu hafifletmek için teknolojiyi daha aktif kullanmaktadırlar. Teknoloji büyük insan gruplarının evden çalışmasını sağlarken, bu süreçte sosyalleşmenin ana aracı olmuştur. Teknoloji ihtiyaç duyulan eğlenceyi sağlarken, bilinçsiz bireyler sorunlu kullanım kalıpları geliştirme riski altındadır. Bu derlemenin amacı teknoloji kullanımı risklerini tartışmak ve etkilerini azaltmaya yardımcı olabilecek bazı pratik öneriler sunmaktır.
