Technology is the application of scientific knowledge to practical aims. It involves combining scientific, engineering, mathematical, linguistic and historical knowledge in order to change or manipulate the human environment. Technology also includes the social and ethical implications of the use of science.
When a piece of technology is invented it must prioritize some low-resistance path to an end; that is, inherently it must ignore other paths. In the case of computers and digital cameras, for example, it was a new technology that shifted people away from analogue photography. It did not eliminate the pathway altogether but it deprioritized it and with it the inefficient but gratifying culture of painstakingly physically retouching images for hours at a time.
It is generally accepted that the relationship between technology and society (or culture) is a mutually beneficial, symbiotic and co-dependent one. However, it is also widely accepted that the way in which technology and society interact is not always a linear process.
Teachers are constantly pushed to integrate new technologies into their lessons and this can be a daunting task for many teachers who feel overwhelmed and under resourced. This is why it is important to start with small steps and a tried and true tool that can be easily integrated into existing curriculum.
