The word technology comes from two Greek words, transliterated techne and logos. Technology is therefore both a tool and a catalyzer and it can become a medium through which change can happen. On can argue that the Baumgartner and Kalz typology does a good job in relating learning to teaching to technology. Theories of technology often attempt to predict the future of technology based on the high technology and science of the time.
Even though there are certain repercussions and a negative impact of technology as well, nobody can say that technology has not aided society on a whole. How is science and technology related to the society is something that is calling even for the government intervention. Penile technology can lengthen the penis for three-eight’s of an inch to two inches, depending on the patient. To develop a definition of technology, DiGironimo examined the history and philosophy of technology and the literature on science education research. Note: e-learning often refers to technology or designs used in distance teaching, but it also is used to describe any sort of technology use in education.
To sum up, IT auditing adds value by reducing risks, improving security, complying with regulations and facilitating communication between technology and business management. First, technology is the rational process of creating means to order and transform matter, energy, and information to realize certain valued ends. Today, the notion of technology is generally associated with artifacts that in some way extend human capabilities. In the Automated Innovation Revolution the process for determining how to acquire and utilize technology for a competitive advantage (which includes R&D) is automated so that it can be executed with unprecedented speed, efficiency and agility. Data entry personnel may be included if they are considered part of the technology staff. To demonstrate and validate the efficacy of novel technology to new or emerging military forces operational and/or systems requirements.
The Journal of Interactive Learning Research published by the association for the Advancement of Computing in Education included on March 2006 the following enumeration of interactive learning environments that gives an idea on the technical scope of the field.
Once risks are assessed, there can be clear vision on what course to take – to reduce or mitigate the risks through controls, to transfer the risk through insurance or to simply accept the risk as part of the operating environment. We have to look beyond the actual technology and look critically at the social, cultural and politcal contexts of the technology. The use of basic technology is also a feature of other animal species apart from humans. To act as a focus and catalyst for the integration of complementary technologies in a system context.
