Welcome to Week 7

This week we will cover how to evaluate information and control technology. This is a popular topic because some will say that most information on the internet is fake. Others will say that it is biased or manipulated. Ultimately, you need to have a reasonable amount of judgement to ensure the information you are reading is legitimate.

Moreover, as technology evolves and expands, users and businesses are faced with constant decisions about what is right for them or their business. What drives adoption? What makes products successful? Does the business need the new technology or does the new technology create the need?

Pick a topic below and post your reply by Wednesday at midnight. Your response should be at least 400 words and appropriately cites your resources.

Respond to two of your classmates by Sunday at midnight. Your responses should be at least 200 words and should be substantive. You should offer additional resources, insight, or other helpful feedback. A simple “I like your post” will result in a 0.
