Using your Week 1 assignment and the 3 very specific technological advances you chose last week, you will be creating a 10 – 15 slide PowerPoint presentation with SPEAKER notes on the topic of “The Effect of Technological Advances.”

Create a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with SPEAKER notes in which you discuss 3 specific technological advances. Slides should only have a title, a visual, and some bullet points that you explain in detail in the speaker notes. The bulk of your information should be in speaker notes – not on your slides.

ANALYZE how the 3 technologies are significant points in history when rapid technological advances have occurred and that you believe had the greatest impact on society, different cultures, and individuals. For EACH of the 3 technological advancements, discuss the following. Include details and examples when answering these questions. (ALL questions must be addressed in your presentation)
A. Why was the technology significant for society? (Explain what it meant for people at that time in history?)
B. What happened in society as a result of the technology? What were the unintended consequences? (in other words….how did society change because of the technology? What changes happened that the inventors didn’t intend to happen – such as becoming bullied on social media.)
C. What were the effects of the technology on sociocultural development, including the benefits and harms? (what were the pros and cons of the technology on the social culture at the time?)
D. What were the benefits and harms of the technology on the privacy and values of individuals? (did it provide more or less privacy? Did it increase or decrease values)?
E. How has the technology shaped how people define and present themselves in society and their digital identities? Will it continue to do so? (How has the specific technology you are presenting impact people’s identities and how they saw themselves – or how they portray themselves – especially online with their digital identity (i.e. profiles).
F. Has the technology created greater, lesser, or divided social equity over time? (You have to choose 1 of these…..did the invention of the specific technology create more social equality, less social equality of did if divide it (creating a gap in society)? If you are unsure of what social equity is, please read the text and/or Google it. (hint: much of it has to do with access to technology).
