1. 
Introduction of
Technology

 

Knowledge
can be used for some purposes or applications, in the everyday industry and in
our everyday lives. A s a result, whenever we tend to use our knowledge to
achieve some purpose. We’re using technology but there may be slightly more to
it than what we think. Technology usually defines or is a specific piece of
equipment. Equipment can be simple or it can be astonishing complex. It can
range from the discovery of the first wheel all the way to the computer and Mp3
players.

Technology
can be a useful tool for revolutionizing the education process. It can help to strengthen
the bond between educators and students, invent new ways to learn, to collaborate,
and to access gaps between the educators and the students to meet the basic need
of all the learners.

Even
in our schools, colleges and universities exploration in terms of technology
should be encouraged.  Educators should
collaborate with the students in learning, gaining new knowledge and acquiring
new skills along their students. Educators should create a vision for the
students to enhance learning experiences and provide the right tools and
guidance for all students to thrive.

 However, in order to realize the benefits of
technology in our education process and provide authentic and fun learning
experiences, the educators need to use technology more efficiently and
effectively in their daily routine. As well as the education stakeholders which
includes leaders, teachers, faculty and other educators should commit to working
as a whole to use technology to improve various aspects within the nation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.  History
of Technology

 

The
new decade has begun with fantastic technologic prospects. 3D television is
beginning to wind its way into mainstream home entertainment. Whether it will
enjoy a great success depends on how quickly the public adopts this new way of
looking at films and broadcasts. Another young technology is the
miniaturization of computers. Soon we won’t notice anymore the CPUs surrounding
us everywhere we are. The world is run by humanity, and we really need
computers to run the world. Still, vis-à-vis the calamity that struck Haiti our
advanced technologies seem diminished.

In
view of the panic predictions for 2012, it should be noted that apocalyptic
fortunetellers have always lived and outfaced people throughout history.
However, this doesn’t halt the technologic vicissitude that has been occurring
in the last 20 years, as though following a given pattern. It happens so fast
that all these innovations don’t seem as amazing anymore; innovation has become
a requisite for a better tomorrow. That’s what we are taught to believe.

French
writer Paul Valery said, “The trouble with our times is that the future is not
what it used to be.” Think about this for a moment, and you will notice there
is truth to it. Usually things never turn out to be as we planned it. In
technology it’s a different story, though. Audi’s slogan “Vorsprung durch
Technik” (Progress through technology) indicates the state of mind people
share. We like to be at the cutting edge, pushing the envelope. When the
envelope pushes back, we push harder until we reach our goal. With that
attitude, one cannot but gaze baffled the advancements made in just the last
ten years.

Ten
years ago one would rave about 256 MB RAM; it was something a geek would die
for in those days. Today with 4 GB RAM one feels it’s not enough yet. There is
indeed something happening, besides the shrinking of CPUs, cheapening of SSDs
and rising market share of Apple. Technology is ubiquitous; it has become the
network of information that holds the knowledge of humankind. To think that the
world’s ideas and history is stored on the countless computers that are in
operation today is a bit frightening. Remind yourself what happens when you
drop a HDD to the ground. It breaks; your personal data is gone.

For
this reason, more and more people start embracing the cloud. As time goes by,
companies such as Google store a vast amount of photos, texts and emails on
their servers. Privacy has been an issue, yet it seems that it’s beginning to
become a secondary concern. What people wish for most is an easy way of
archiving family moments. And so we become yet more engulfed by technology.
Google’s Servers have a storage capacity of at least one-hundred million gigabytes,
split over fifteen server farms. Yet, should these servers stop working, the
cloud disappears too. 

Most
any computer today could outpace the computer which took three brave men to the
moon, and brought them back to the earth safely. In 1969, the world watched
with abated breath as the first humans set foot on earth’s satellite, to set a
milestone for the space age. In 2020, NASA hopes to repeat this feat, and
little later go farther yet, on to Mars. To understand the motivation of space
exploration, in lieu of solving humanity’s problems, one must take in what Neil
Armstrong said: “I felt that a successful lunar landing would inspire men
around the world to believe that impossible goals really are possible, that
there really is hope for solutions to humanity’s problems.”

The
question one should ask is how important technology really is. Dependence on
something has been known to cause trouble. Even
though, computers are interwoven with history of only the last 70 years. To
believe that our civilization functioned without the help of computers is
almost impossible. It’s a fact, though, that the human race has always reached
for the stars. In the seminal sci-fi film “2001:
a space odyssey” Stanley Kubrick and author
Arthur C. Clarke establish the concept of eventuality. The visual aesthetic is
constructed around the idea that technology is simply a materialized version of
human aspirations — such as flying, and eventually reaching the stars in
spaceships. Every scene conveys the idea that each innovation, every new
contraption is the result of an inherent curiosity. It’s a special occurrence
that spurs the urge to create something, as for instance the legendary apple
which fell on Isaac Newton’s head. At first inconsequential circumstances could
be the one thing kindling a greater whole.

In
1856, great American writer Henry David Thoreau skeptically wondered in “Walden” what
all this fuss is over the telegraph, in which the object seems to be “to
talk fast and not to talk sensibly. Our inventions are, wont to be pretty toys,
which distract our attention from serious things.” Skeptics existed then,
and exist today.  

What
exactly has technologic progress accomplished? It has constituted an awareness
of the misery in the world. Never before has it been easier to connect with
people, or to observe the damage nature has done. With Street View one can
travel to far-away cities and get an idea of how life might be there. In a
nutshell, technology has made every process of life simpler and faster. In a
way Mr. Thoreau presumed correctly. Twitter is precisely that, a tool to
succinctly convey the trivial, but relevant information too. Yet, regardless of
its import, any message is worth something to someone.

 

 

 

3.  Present
Context

 

Technology
has been developing day by day in such a way that normal people find it hard to
know each and every thing that comes out. Many advanced technologies are
invented but some are not disclosed whereas some are distributed to the general
public. Below are some examples that denote the present context of technology:

3.1                  
Types of present Technology

 

 

·      
Self-Driving
Trucks

Imagine a truck driving
by itself, it is what future holds in store for all of us. Trucks using enhanced
autopilot systems and automatic braking. lane shifting and so on. Drivers will
not be needed in order to drive trucks.

·      
Paying with your face

China is introducing a new system in which
people have to use Face-detecting systems in order to authorize payments. access
facilities and track down criminals. People will have to authorize their face signatures
in order to confirm any legal authority due to which the criminals cannot authenticate
and if they do so they will be caught.

·       
NVIDIA
GEFORCE NOW

Have you ever felt disappointed as your
mac or your pc could not run high end games? Well basically GeForce lets you
play high end games on your pc or mac without any new hardware.

·       The
360-Degree Selfie

Inexpensive cameras that make spherical images
are opening a new era in photography and changing the way people share stories.

 

 

 

 

4.  Advantages
of technology

The advantages of technology are as follows:

 

·      
It
helps to improve communication

It is always difficult to convey messages from one place to another
especially when a branch is located far way but with technology it is just a
click away. A person can send an email to the other side of the planet with
just a click and people can convey messages through telephone and messages to
far way places which helps the decision process among the management and also
makes it quick and effective.

·      
It
also encourages innovation and creativity:

People can use
many technological tools in order to create many effective and creative business
ideas. There is a place also called the internet where people can search and
link as well create many ideas from it. It helps to gain access to information
which is not even known by many experienced people which can be extracted to
construct and innovate ideas. It also helps to present ideas in a more creative
and understandable way to the audience.

·      
It
improves on human resource management

In workplace technology
is the key to all the screening, recruiting and hiring process done with in. It
is used to advertise, manage and allocate work to all the HR available. It changes
the way managers tend to do their job. Nowadays machine tend to do work at a
cheaper rate then human labour as well.

·      
Helps
to save time

Technology tends
to make the work in a workplace more effective. It can do various tasks at the
same time which helps to increase the productivity. In a workplace technology is
what makes the works faster like if a person has to record and maintain records
it takes ages but if it is done on a software it is recorded and processed in
less than half the time.

·      
Creates Mobility

The use of internet and
computers to work has eliminated space and time boundaries. Employees can work
from anywhere at any time, this mobility makes employees stay in control of
their jobs.

 

5.  Disadvantages Of technology

 

·       It causes distraction
at Work

Employees have many tasks to do in their respective workplaces
so they need to focus on their doing. Social networks such as Facebook, twitter
and YouTube tend to derive the concentration from their task. Technology can be
very disturbing. Everybody has smartphones with which you can access each and
everything in the world due to which a temptation is created within which can
be distracting even to the experienced individuals.

·       It has high maintenance
costs

It
is very expensive to maintain technology. Like for example you have buy a new
graphics card for suppose Gtx 1060 it cost more a fortune nearly 50000 for a
6gb one. Every day technology is changing you have to be up to date with the software’s
and hardware’s in order to have a optimum experience and in addition to that
you must also have skilled manpower to operate those tech which increases the
wage costs as well.

·       It makes employees
lazy

People are becoming more dependent on technology nowadays.
Ranging from small calculations to complex algorithms all can be done with the
help technology. People are losing their will to work as they don’t even have
to write they can simply copy/paste from websites and submit their assignments.

·       It affects workplace relationships

People do not have a tendency to have a face-face conversation
as you can speak through phone, attend conference through video calling even
from far away. They don’t have a bond between them which makes the environment less
motivating as well as people tend to become more solitary rather than working
collectively.

·       It’s very risky

Even though   technology can store a lot of data it is prone
to data security issues. Hackers can remotely access your data as well as the
data can be deleted or corrupted due to various server issues which makes it
very risky.

 

 

6.  conclusion

 

In
the conclusion:

 

·       Technology
has a positive impact on workplace and at the same time may also pose some
negative effects.

 

·       All
the parties involved should take corresponding measures in order to ensure the
proper use of technology in the workplace as well other places as well

 

·       At
last technology should be used in a right way so that the work done can be more
effective as well as technology should be encouraged all throughout the nation
on different workplaces
