Final Project

In addition, it is suggested that you visit the IDS 403
LibGuide for guidance on how to select a topic. Select one issue or event in technology and write a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses how this issue/event fits
into the framework of technology and then addresses how each lens influences perceptions and attitudes toward the issue/event, technology, and society. The
paper should outline each lens’s impact and framing of the issue or event. Be sure to provide a working thesis statement and clear definitions for your key
terms.

Specifically, you must address the critical elements listed below.
I. Introduction: You will compile a series of critical analyses of a single event or issue in technology through the four general education lenses: history,
humanities, natural and applied sciences, and social sciences.
A. Topic: Using the four lenses, explain how an issue or event within technology has or has not influenced modern society.

II. Lens Connections: In this section of your assignment, you will describe the connections between your issue or event and each of the four general
education lenses.

A. What is the connection of your issue or event to the lens of history for determining its impact on various institutions? Utilize evidence
from theory and research to support your analysis.

B. What is the connection of your issue or event to the lens of the humanities? Utilize evidence from theory and research to support your
analysis.
C. What is the connection of your issue or event to the lens of the natural and applied sciences for determining its impact on various
institutions? Utilize evidence from theory and research to support your analysis.

D. What is the connection of your issue or event to the lens of the social sciences for determining its impact on various institutions? Utilize
evidence from theory and research to support your analysis.

Be sure to begin the research process early and use evidence from your research to support your responses. Refer to course resources, the LibGuide for
this class, as well as any other pertinent resources to support your responses. Although at least two sources are required for each lens, note that you
may use the same source for more than one lens if applicable. Relevant current news sources may be used with instructor approval. Incorporate
instructor feedback into your final project.
