This course provides students with an understanding of the underlying foundations of technology that have an impact on their lives and integrates those principles with real-world activities. It promotes information fluency by giving students an understanding of the foundational concepts from which the technology is derived and helping them to develop higher-level intellectual capabilities for applying the technology. The class is broken into three sections - technology principles, technology's impact in society and labs. It is the combination of these three sections that will enable students to understand the foundation and the implementation of technology in their daily lives. Class lectures incorporating a myriad of digital technologies including computer hardware, readings, labs and student discussions will be utilized to integrate the application of technology and the impact facing society.
