         In the passage “The Digital Parent Trap” byEliana Dockterman, Dockterman discusses the growing usage of technology in Americanchildren’s lives. Strategies Dockterman employs to persuade the audience thatbeing exposed to technology in early ages could be beneficial includes statisticalfacts, quotations from authoritative people, and appeal to pathos.
        Docktermanbegins her passage with precise statistics: kids age three to eight are thegeneration of “tech-savviest in the history”, since “27% of them use tablets,43% uses smartphones, and 52% use laptops.” Placing this statistical fact inthe first paragraph adds weight to how the development of technology isaffecting American children and lends Dockterman credibility. Next, Dockterman introducesanother specific statistic, which is “Los Angeles county alone will spend $30million on the classroom ipad this year, out fitting 640,000 kids by late 2014.”By drawing on these specific statistical facts, Dockterman not only emphasizesthe adaptation of technology by the society, especially schools, but also backsup her argument that it is beneficial to be exposed to technology early.
        Inorder to make her argument more reliable, therefore trustworthy, Dockterman adoptsquotations from different authoritative individuals. In paragraph 7, Docktermandirectly quotes the word from Mimi Ito (“an anthropologist at the University ofCalifornia at Irvine”) thatt states the access to internet both allows kids “engagewith specialized communities of interest” and diminishes the limitation of “what’soffered in school.” That only through the access to internet can kids getengaged in a wider range of knowledge underscores the significance of the exposureof technology. Using quotations from the expert, Mimi Ito, suggest both that itmust be true and that Dockterman is knowledgeable, thus reinforcing her centralclaim that there definitely are benefits of exposing to technology early. Moveon to Paragraph 11, Dockterman, once again, cites directly from an authority-Shawn Jackson (principal of a public school). By quoting “If you look at applyingfor college or a job, that’s on the computer.” and “If we’re not exposing ourstudents to this stuff early, they’re going to be left behind.”, Dockterman forcesthe audience to face a day-to-day issue and to make personal connections. Thesequotations, in certain degree, supports Dockterman’s argument of the benefitsof being exposed to technology early in life.
        Withoutappeal to pathos, the adoption of precise statistics and authoritative quotationswould not exert their influence among the audience. Dockterman, in paragraph 8,utilizes contrast to heightens the benefits of early exposure to technology.Contrasting the result of a logic test between kids who play a “solving puzzle”video game and kids who do not play the game- the result was shown to be the kidswho play the video game did “12%” batter-shows it is beneficial to be exposedto technology. Dockterman uses contrast to indicate the significant advantagesof the exposure to technology. By utilizing this contrast, Dockterman draws outheartfelt ponderance from her reader that the benefits of being exposed to technologyare undeniable.
        Throughoutthe passage, Dockterman adopts specific statistics, direct quotations, andappeal to pathos to attain her goal which is to persuade the audience that thereare, as a matter of fact, benefits of the early exposure to technology.
