7. Evaluating and Controlling Technology

This week we will be looking at some broader issues.
What are the implications for a global society when a very small percentage of the world population has access to computers and computing, while most other people do not? Will this imbalance lead to unrest or encourage the have-not’s to work harder to close the gap? There are people who have no interest in the benefits of computers in society and believe that we, as a society, are better off without the technology.

Community Service Learning

You should have completed your community service learning project. Be sure to complete the Summary quiz – this is the learning part of community service learning. This is an opportunity to show that you and the community partner were able to learn from one another.

Final group projects

Now it is time to start moving toward the final group project. Use the Final project “choice” to form groups. Then start working in the group to come up with ideas about how you will do the project work. Come up with an outline for the work and a schedule. Be sure to include time at the end for editing, formatting and adding pictures, audio and video. Discuss roles and responsibilities. There should be interesting work for everyone in the group.

If you have questions, please ask.
