6G impact of this technology on society. The technology can be one that exists in an alternate world, one that hasn’t been invented yet or one that is in the process of being developed. There are no limitations on your technology idea.
Start by brainstorming various technologies that interest you. The technology can be one that exists in an alternate world, one that hasn’t been invented yet or one that is in the process of being developed. There are no limitations on your technology idea.
You may decide to create a car that uses water as fuel. Remember, there are no financial limitations and no bad ideas. The intent of the project is for your team to assess the impact of this technology on society.
Synopsis of Project Topic should include the following:
Topic of the Team Project: Identify your proposed topic.
Rationale: A brief explanation of why your group chose that topic (it could be joint expertise, interest in the topics or some other reason) including a brief background of the environment and need for your technology.
Research Plan: A brief paragraph that covers WHERE and HOW you will obtain information about your topic, what TYPES of sources you will be considering, and (if you have gotten this far) list any sources of information you may have already identified.
Project Plan: A brief paragraph to layout the “plan” of the project. This includes what deliverables you need to develop by when, milestones to be achieved by when, required tasks to be accomplished, how they will be accomplished and by whom.
Your report and presentation will need to address the following:
How will the selected technology provide benefit?
How might the selected technology produce harm?
Will the technology be “gendered”?
What might be malfunction risks?
How might the technology introduce cause and effect relationships?
What criteria will be used to evaluate the successes or failures of the technology?
What political considerations exist?
Discuss pros and cons of the new technology versus refining an existing technology.
How might one find a receptive market?
Discuss if the technology applies to science.
How will the technology impact the environment–short term and long term? Consequences?
Discuss ethical considerations.
Discuss occupations generated and potential jobs lost.
Support your discussion points using appropriate sources that are properly cited. The synopsis should be at least 1 page
