Devry LAS432Week 1: Defining Technology – Discussion

Science and
Technology (graded)

If the scientific test of a scientific theory is accepted by
the community of men and women who are called scientists, does that mean that
anything is acceptable as long as enough of the right people agree with it?
Does that mean there is no such thing as scientific truth ? How, if at all,
does science differ from politics, art, or religion, in that case?

Revolutions (graded)

Do you agree with the assertion that we are now living in a
third great technological transformation called the Knowledge Revolution? Have
computers truly changed our lives so much that we can call this a revolution
like the Industrial Revolution of the 18th century?
Week 2: History and
Technology – Discussion
Technology and Social
Change (graded)

In what way (or ways) is the current Knowledge Revolution a
child of the industrial revolution? Is this a new revolution or simply an
extension of the 18th-century revolution? Given the history, is it perhaps more
appropriate to call the current revolution a Communications Revolution?Week7:
Given the current state of energy use, which continues to
grow exponentially in such countries as China and India, what measures can the
United States and other Western countries take to produce more fuel-efficient
and environmentally friendly fuels? What other sources of energy could be
developed to solve the energy crisis? What can the individual do to alleviate
this crisis?

Globalization and the
Threat to the Environment (graded)

Before we decide what to do about the environment globally,
let’s see what we can do locally. What environmental problems are you aware of
in the area where you live? What solutions, from among those proposed by the
authors of the essays, do you think would be the most appropriate to solve
these problems?
