The Interdependence of Technology and Society
Technology is a big part of our daily lives. As a result, dystopian literature often contains criticisms of it. Famous examples include Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange, and George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. Faust, by Goethe, is also often considered a metaphor for industrial technology. And Theodore Kaczynski’s Industrial Society and Its Future (1969), which was widely circulated in newspapers and books, is also a critique of technology in literature.
Design in technology is one of the fundamental themes of technology education across the world. The term is synonymous with the process of creating something new, whether it be an object, a system, or an idea. It is an intrinsically rewarding process for those involved. For over a century, design and creativity have been a central part of education. Educational philosophies have varied, but fundamental themes have remained constant. The convergent and divergent thinking framework has guided convergent thinking, and conventional standards-based assessment has focused on convergent thinking.
As technology continues to evolve at an accelerated pace, more attention is being paid to the role of design in technology. Moore’s Law, which claims that overall processing power doubles every two years, highlights the importance of design in innovation. The role of user experience and product design is also gaining importance. According to a McKinsey report, companies that embrace design produce 32 percent more revenue and 56 percent higher shareholder returns.
Impact of technology on society
The interdependence, co-dependence, and production of technology and society is the primary premise of technology society and life. This relationship has been evident since human beings first used tools. But how do technology and society relate to each other? This is not an easy question to answer. But the following discussion will offer some insights into the interdependence between society and technology.
First of all, technology affects human health. For example, people spend less time on physical activity and spend less time with their families as a result of technology. Another major concern is how technology affects the environment. We use a lot of energy for processing products in factories and for running our cars and homes. However, we can replace these energy needs with renewable sources.
Another concern about technology and society is the unequal access it affords people. This has caused global social stratification. Despite this, technology has made it possible for old friends to connect with each other on Facebook, schoolchildren in California to collaborate with those in Bali, and military personnel to conduct lethal drone strikes from afar. Nonetheless, the impact of technology on society must be studied thoroughly.
Conceptualization of TK
Tcl provides a standard set of commands for creating widgets (which are windows within a graphical user interface). Widget types include buttons, scrollbars, menus, and text windows. In addition, Tk provides a general-purpose drawing widget known as the canvas. This widget lets you draw lines, boxes, and bitmaps.
The TPACK framework approaches the definition of TK by arguing that FITness encompasses a broad knowledge of information technology, the ability to recognize how it affects their goals, and the ability to continually adapt to changes in information technology. It further defines TK as having a mastery and deep understanding of technology resources.
While WIPO is still working on an international legal instrument, some countries have passed sui generis legislation on TK protection. In addition, countries have adapted existing IP systems to provide some protection for TK.
