Technology-new devices

Recently, there was an event in the Kingdom, Case 002, that brought four former Khmer Rouge leaders t​​o court for trial.

While some people are busy with the court proceedings, others are interested in technology. This issue focuses on the theme of the influx of modern technology, such as the internet, computers, phones and other miltimedia devices, into the Kingdom and how that effects people, especially youths. Our Lift reporter examines the misuse of this technology and how it has allowed some young Cambodians, especially males, to watch pornographic movies, songs, and images.  This sometimes makes it more likely for these people to have sex at an early age and risk life-threatening diseases (pages 3 and 10).

With the Kingdom’s increasing population, there are more and more multi-media DVDs designed to teach young children both Khmer and English with voice and pictures. Another Lift reporter discusses this new method way of teaching (pages 4 and 5).

Young people like technology because they like new things. Technology also allows them to communicate better with one another and save money.  Some young Cambod-ians even like to use two SIM cards for their cell phone  (pages 6 and 7).
I
n this issue, we also found a talented teenager who created a water rocket and took it to a competition in Australia (page 8).
