Dear Division 16
This week we added on to our discussions about the applications of technology by thinking about problems technology has not yet solved.
For your blog post this time, please consider either a problem we discussed in class or a new problem you’ve thought of.
Use a few sentences to describe the problem in detail. Please try to be specific. For example, “communications” would be too broad, and has been partially solved by technology like telephones, email, newspapers and television, but “communication between different languages” might not have been suitably addressed.
After you have described the problem, use a few more sentences to describe what existing solutions we use and how effective they are. Using the example above, we may describe the ability to use subtitles to watch movies that use a language other than our own, or try google translate to help us with individual sentences, or apps like duolingo that help us learn common phrases, but these do not help in situations where the Internet is not available and may not cover all possible languages. Each of these examples may help us plan or learn, but will not be much help if we need to communicate with someone in real time in the real world.
Here are the problems we generated in class this week:
I look forward to your responses!
Have a great Spring Break!
