Technology has an impact on society and on individuals even if we don’t realize it because we’re so immersed in our technology-centric society. This assignment gives you the opportunity to reflect on and explore the role of technology in our lives.

Imagine you have been asked to submit a peer-reviewed paper for a technology journal.

Select 2 of these technologies that you have experience with:
o Smartphones
o Google Maps

Write a 700- to- 1,050-word reflection on the 2 technologies you selected (350 to 700 words per technology). Assess EACH of the technologies as it applies to you and include the following:
1. What are the issues the technology causes for our society? (Be specific, provide examples)
2. What opportunities does the technology provide for our society? (NOT just for you, but society as a whole).
3. What are the ethical questions the technology presents for our society? (Ethics is very important. What ethical concerns do people in our society have around the specific technology you are reviewing? This will likely be based on people’s values, morals, and beliefs about right and wrong behaviors and attitudes.)
4. How can and does each technology influence human activities? (This is not what it does (as in the benefits), it’s about how it motivates or influences someone’s behavior). (Be specific and include examples.) Examples of human activity are skiing, crafting, traveling. Focus on something humans do or do more because of technology.

Consider using the above 4 key points as your headings and then fully explain each point under those headings.

You MUST apply these 4 questions to EACH of the 2 technologies you choose from the list. Don’t generalize or group them together. Determine your stance on EACH technology after you have assessed the technologies.

Also answer this question: Do the positives of each technology outweigh the negatives? (Explain this opinion – don’t just answer “yes or no.” Support your stance with research from your peer-reviewed sources.) (Another header).

Cite a minimum of 2 peer-reviewed sources. (Outside of the course readings).

Format your paper according to APA guidelines. (This includes an APA title page and a reference page with sources listed appropriately. Double-spaced, paragraphs indented and headings for each section. The headings will help you stay focused on the topic you are discussing in the paragraph).

Please read carefully. The more detailed you are, the more you show your understanding of how the technologies impact society.
