What are some of the ways that the ease and simplicity of our current technological devices have led us to surrogate our daily responsibilities onto these devices? How do these make us vulnerable to errors, risks, and/or failures? Please include examples, and be as specific as possible. Class, below I have posted the site for the Institute for Global Futures which describes how robotics are used to perform specific human tasks.  This is a different type of use of technology to delegate human duties to, as compared to the everyday delegation we can make to our smart phones, as one example.
Do you foresee into the future, robotics “managing” workers? While our reliance upon technology does generate dependency, from your observations, are there skills acquired from our frequent use of digital technology?…

Technology’s Impact – 38 Pages 

Cell phones have become a part of Americans’ daily lives, as well as that of other cultures around the globe. Over the past decade, reports that reflect a danger associated with this technology have emerged, although some experts say there is not enough evidence to support these claims. In considering both arguments, assess whether there is causative link between cell phones and brain cancer. Or is it just a coincidence?

Class, in this discussion, it is important to examine and discuss different facts and different perspectives related to the health issues associated with cell phones.  I encourage you to research the topic and share information sources in the discussion.
Below I have posted the link to the site ProCon.org and its review of literature on this topic, which is later accompanied by a summary list of pros and cons related to whether or not cell phones are safe.
t testing by the federal government should be lengthened? Studies of the possible correlation between cell phone usage and brain cancer show mixed outcomes.  But do you think that public education about potential health risks associated with cell phones might be helpful or not?…
