ABSTRACT
The article discusses the advantage of using computers to education and its impact on culture and the digital phase of industrial revolution. It is important to understand the concept in order to develop a critique that can illuminate how computers undermine the forms of knowledge and relationships essential to face-to-face and intergenerationally coherent communities as well as how computers contribute to the ecological crisis. Jacques Ellul, author of the book "The Technological Society," observed the relevance to understand the influence of computers on the cultures of the world and its characteristics of modern technology.
