Information Technology and Society

The course has been designed to provide a framework or set of intellectual tools to help students understand and evaluate technological change. These tools will be applied to the development of information technology, its interaction with society, and possible future senarios. Selected topics include understanding digitization as culture, visions of the future and perils of prediction, as well as issues related to application areas such as the home, manufacturing, oce work, design and services, education, and law. The course will also consider some of the privacy and personal dignity issues associated with information technology.

Consists of in class participation, weekly forum discussions, 2 essays and a presentation. You don't really learn much form this course, and the weekly discussion requires a fair bit of reading. The essays and presentation are marked rather harshly as well.
