Technology is the rational process of creating means (tools, devices, systems, methods, procedures) that order and transform matter, energy, and information to realize certain valued ends.
It involves a series of steps that must be complete to achieve a desired outcome, and it often takes many years for the development of a new technology to become practical. As it moves through the stages of development, its underlying ideas and processes must be validated and tested against reality.
Unlike science, which focuses on universality and necessity, technology must reason through contingencies, constraints, and behavior in specific circumstances. This requires the technologist to ask questions about what will be most effective in that situation and to develop a strategy for getting there.
Educational apps like Kahoot allow teachers to create lessons that require students to interact with technology in various ways. This can be a great way to engage a reluctant student or to get whole-class participation.
Teachers can also post assignments online that are accessible from computers or mobile phones. This allows students to work at their own pace and helps them to become more organized.
As technology becomes more widespread, it will continue to impact the way we live and work. It will affect our environment and raise new ethical questions. It will also change the way we communicate and learn. It will make our lives easier, but it may also cause more harm than good. We should learn how to use it effectively so we can benefit from it while keeping our surroundings clean.
