It is through technology that we can have what we aimed for. Technology has a big role in our daily lives. We use technology today in order to:

Arrow Have better communications
Arrow Ease the way of living
Arrow Decrease work force for infrastructures
Arrow Meet the demands of the fast changing society
Arrow Develop some ideas for the future

The things that influenced us to came up with different technologies are the different ideas that may came up from different persons, such ideas are made from a crap and has been develop into a productive one.

The factors that may cause the technology change are the following:

Arrow Demands and needs of the society- it is due to the needs and demands of the society that the technology evolved from time to time. For example the cell phones, in 1990’s we use cell phones that can just text or call but now we have 3g phones in which we can download music or explore the internet.
Arrow Cost of work force- when it comes to work force some company’s would prefer to invest on machines that to employees, they think that they can lessen the cost of production by having such machines which is a product of technology.
Arrow Capacity of a person to explore- the capacity of a person to explore can be a big factor to the changes of technology because a person can develop a helpful or dangerous product of technology.

Why we use technology today?

The most basic answer to the question above is TO MAKE LIFE EASIER. Valuable technology innovations are readily available however; the procurement of these technologies is not for free, it requires COST. Sophisticated machineries are even used to maximize the production of companies, not only in manufacturing companies but also technology is also available in learning institutions like school. School is the basic foundation of learning therefore, enhanced technical facilities must be available for learning resources. It can also facilitate additional learning for the students. In detail, below are the reasons why we use technology today:
• Learning Requirement – In some courses that requires technical facilities and enhanced laboratory, the institution must take into consideration on acquiring enhanced technologies for the advantage of the students and for the exposure of everyone to the related innovations that can be applied in the real field of specialization. These technologies are essential source of knowledge. Also, it must be considered somehow that the technologies available in the school are not outdated, because as what we can observe today, the trend of technology is getting higher.

• Better Communication – As we all know, communication is one of the essential parts of living without it, misunderstanding often comes between individuals. The internet paved the way for a better communication across people in other countries. With the help of this technology people can be as closer as how it should be. Better communications leads the way for better understanding, with communication we build partnership, with communication we make a difference.


• Demands in Business – In business, it is not enough to have a business model to follow. Business should include production resources for technical requirements. Technical requirements include sophisticated machines to maximize the process thus, maximizing profit. Acquiring relevant technologies will lead the business in the cutting edge. Competition in the market is very critical that’s why business owners must take into the consideration on the acquirement of technologies as what the business itself demands.




•Relevant Opportunities – Acquirement of technology leads to relevant opportunities, relevant to the technology itself. Like for instance a laptop, a student having the said gadget have the opportunity to open up their minds and work on related things that the said gadget can hold. Also, the opportunity to be exposed in a vast of information resources. But then again, these opportunities always involve cost however, there are a lot of ways and means to acquire technology lesser than the most required cost of acquirement.

•The functionalities – In acquiring related technology, we don’t only consider its value or the cost but most importantly we consider the functionalities. Ideally, we consider the functionalities because these functions are those that cope with our needs. In other words, acquirement of technology is interdependent on the needs or the demand of the current situation.

Acquirement of technology caused by known influences, these influences lead people to engage related technology for coping up some needs. One known influence is the FEATURES/FUNCTIONALITIES of a specific technology. Years before, people tend to manage their works manually however, as the enhanced technology were introduced in the masses and by looking into the functionalities people then realize that those functions will suit on the current needs of the situation. Later, sophisticated related technologies were introduced, the people continue to acquire based on the basic needs. Another influence is the WAY OF LIVING, even how expensive technologies can be people always acquire things because these set of people merely believe that acquiring these technologies greatly and positively affects the way of their living. Since these people are fortunate enough of the chance to buy things, in turn they also have the greater opportunity to be updated and carry the advantage that these technologies can hold.

Factors affecting the technology change involves, DEMANDS, and HUMAN CAPACITY to work. Way of living, business processes, production are known demands which contribute to the technology change. Human capacity to work is not enough to fulfil related tasks, there are task which a man cannot handle and only sophisticated machines can handle. Human capacity to work is one of the factors which greatly affect technology changes.

Technology becoming the common trend used by the people to make it faster. But there are reasons why we use technology today?

  • Simplify Communications among two parties. The technology before requires manual connections in order to established communication with those two which contribute the waste of resources. The use of technology for communications simplifies the transmission of data.
  • Minimize the amount of workforce needed. Before, the pyramids of Egypt took around 10 years and around 50,000 men for that project[1]. Nowadays, some buildings like 15-story building capable to withstand some temperatures and took 6 days and few number of people to complete[2]. And even technology will make construction faster and even minimize casualties.
  • Maximize Production and Demand. People nowadays have been addicted to different tools that make their life easier with consequences too. Such as increasing demand of wide range of smart phones with reviews[3]. These will help the people have freedom to select devices though their own preferences. Technologies also increase production of most products to meet the peoples demands.
  • Open to Innovations. Technologies lead to expansion of systems and applications that will ease in using the work they used to. And also people tend to use their creative minds in making future innovations.
  • and lastly, TECHNOLOGY MAKES LIFE EASIER.

There are some points that the people get influenced with that technology: curiosity, media and peoples ideas. Also, the factor involved in technology change is:


  • User's demand and business needs
  • Expansion of features
  • Business continuity
  • Efficient use of resources
  • The capacity to innovate especially on research involving incoming technologies
  • lastly PEOPLE


Furthermore, the advancement of technology seems to be bloom fast. People must act quickly before it's too late.

MERRY XMAS!!

Technology as what we all know is broad, and it has been very helpful to the world today in terms of speeding up work in order to increase productivity. Technology has become a need to every human being today. In school, in work and in everything we do. Simple machines are considered technology as well, since it speeds up work and reduces human efforts.

Why use technology?

The very first thing that comes to my mind is to ease the way of living.

Before: People used to walk to their destinations no matter how far the distance is, this is because they've got no choice.

Today: People can easily go to places they wanted to be in. Through technology, they were able to get to their destination in no time. Thus, they save time and energy.

Communication

Before: The only way to communicate with friends, family and to other people is through letters. These letters are mailed and will take few days in order for it to get to the receiver.

Today: Telephones, mobile phones, fax machines, e-mailing etc. simplifies the way communication goes. Through the said technology, you would be able to communicate with love ones in an instant. Thus, information is easily passed through.

Technology Change

Technology changes because of the needs of the society. It is dependent on the demand that the world demands. Technologies are developed because it is needed. Another thing that changes technology is how the people adopts it. Will they be able to use a said technology easily? It should also be safe to use regarding the catastrophes that are happening to the world. And the last thing is the cost of its production. It should be feasible and cost effective.

There are millions of possible answers I think if I were to enumerate the reasons why we use technology. For me, the general answers for these are the following:

  • Advances in the field of education (to where education nowadays is not only taught in school, it could now also be done through the use of internet)


  • Benefits of medical technologies ( many people live longer so as medicines and high medical technologies make peoples' lives healthier)


  • Travel or explore the world (airplanes, ships etc. tend people to see the different side of the world)


  • In communication ( people can easily communicate/interact with their loved ones as cellphones, computers etc. exist)


  • Act as guide (physically impaired person finds light as technology leads the way whenever they cannot see it literally, communicate whenever they cannot talk, listen whenever they cannot hear etc.)


  • Living a peaceful life ( armies, police, security guard etc. fought against bad people with their gadgets to protect innocents or civilians from any harm or danger)


There are still a lot of things behind the use of technology but I just enumerated ones that technology has a big contribution of.

The points that have influenced us are when times people are becoming dependent to technology to which it resulted from being lazy and lack of self discipline of many people though there are some other aspect that technology is really beneficial to us. What I am trying to say is through acts of self control and discipline ones must instill so technology may not even abuse our own self .

I think the factors involve in technology change are peoples' dissatisfaction and keeping things as perfect as possible or in other words making complicated things easier.

Why use technology?
Technology has various definitions which intersect in its core meaning, application of science. The issue between Science and technology is still debatable but it’s not my concern here. Throughout the years, technology has been and always innovating. This is because people cite problems to solve and also discontentment of the present technologies. Reasons why we use technology today are apparently talking on the advantages of technology.

Here are some:
1. To improve the quality of life- the primary reason
2. To work more efficiently
3. To use time wisely
4. To ease work
5. To benefit economically
6. To be entertained anytime, anywhere
7. To have better communication
8. To grow a social life
9. To express thyself
10. Medicinal, weaponry and machineries advantage, among others.

The success and failure of technologies is on the viewpoint of the people. I just hope that time won’t come when terminators dominate the human race and humans will not be as lazy as portrayed in Wall-E. Of course, this depends on the minds and thoughts of the people. If there’s no selfishness and conspiracy then there’s no fear in it. The advantages and disadvantages will always depend on how the people will use and develop it. Technology, keep on innovating.

What Influence Us

The things that influence us are the following:
1. Media- it has played a vital role on influencing people on the use of technology. The coverage of media is very broad that it reaches different types of people.
2. Advertisement- the products that businesses sell is presented enlisting the benefits of having a certain technology. Showcasing the charms of the influenced an artists, people are encouraged to use the technology.
3. Sense of Belongingness- people use technology because they want to be in with “What is hot!”
4. Social Status- before having precious stones and property identify the status of a a person but now, not only these but the technology identifies the class of a person in the society.
5. Discontentment- people are actually discontent in everything. They try to improve the things on their grasp. In this sense, the technology will keep on changing.
6. Change- it’s the permanent thing and it’s natural. People change as technology does. This influenced us to innovate and improve things.

Technology Change

Technological change also means technological advancement, technological achievement, technological progress and technological development. Technology innovates and develops from time to time. What really are the factors of technological change? Or what drives the change? In the Wikipedia, MacKenzie and Wajcman in their “social determination of technology” proved that the socials and the elite that actually sustained the change” (Green,2001,pp. 1-20).

Green(2001) considered four factors that encourages technology change which are Intellectual agenda, economic, politics, and existing infrastructure.

1. Intellectual agenda from the elites make technology change possible. The elites can create new technology since they can afford the limited knowledge. Because of this, technology is not considered neutral. In the simple sense who can afford technology can only access it.
2. Corporations that are interested in gaining more profits naturally invest on the advancement of technology. Thus, they provide financial assistance to the elites who experimented on the innovations of the technology. It is just a matter of give and take.
3. Government exerts its power and publishes laws to guarantee that investment can process properly, such as copyright. If government will not be involved, then there’s chaos.
4. Globalization but a cause and effect of technological change.

Reasons why we use technology today

People nowadays are into modernization. Everything from phones to lectures to mails and so on and so forth; people seem to find new ways to make life easier. The uses of technology are as follows:

To communicate

We all know that communication is very important in the part of human lives because it convey meaning in an attempt to create shared understanding between your love ones. There are so many ways of communicating today that there really is no reason why we shouldn't be keeping in touch with the important people in your life. The internet has exploded since its introduction into the public. Through the internet, you can send messages, photos, documents, and other important files through email.

To educate

Using technology involves the student in the learning process. Students using technology become active participants in the learning process instead of passive listeners. It use as part of the normal learning process for students; it is in their comfort zone and teachers often learn new technology programs along with students.

Managing a Business

Technology gives owner/operators ample opportunity at their convenience to investigate the competition and ensure that they possess the products consumers' desire. It also increased productivity and quickly relay the information of the company.

Save effort and time

Using technology to shortcut the little things helps you become more agile and quick to respond on the things you want to do.

What Influence Us?

People nowadays get influenced on modern technology because of the features and functionalities that makes our life more convenient and safes a great deal of our time. Through the use of media used to store and deliver information or data in advertising, broadcasting, news and social, people are getting interested to use that technology. It has given us so many items of luxury and enjoyment. It has also helped to improve our health and lengthen our life span. One example of this the invention of cell phone made people communicates more easily with people at big distances, even across the ocean. The information was quicker received and so, communication improved. But, through the years reliance upon these services has increased and the self-sufficiency of humans has fallen into a pit. In the present day many people rely on e-mail and instant messaging to communicate instead of using letters or in-person meetings; this also includes using the internet instead of the library for reports. This has caused the devolution of the human race to on a machine. Therefore, we should not always rely on the things around us to make our quality of living balance.

Factors involved in technology change?

The factor involved why technology change is that it requires greater demands on the society. People want everything to be modernized. Satisfaction is also the reason why technology changes. Developers improve the functionality of the product to satisfy the needs of the user. Technology will flows and goes by the need of the people.

Here are some reasons why we use technology today:

Arrow To make life easier and convenient- to make heavy jobs and easy. We used technology invent tools to ease the pain of the people.
Arrow To follow the trend- most people think that technology is a status symbol for most of the people.
Arrow To more productive businesses- to make the businesses more productive and profitable
Arrow To power up weaponries and medical equipments- to make other country fear and think that they are more powerful than them.

What influence us to use technology?

The number one reason that we use technology is that to go with the current trend of the people. We always think that having or going with the trend is a status symbol. The second reason is that, people are so lazy that all the work we have will be depended on the machine.

Factors involve in technology change

The factors involving the technology change is that, people always look for more comfortable life, we are not contented with the things that we have.

Why use technology?
If we define the word technology according to dictionaries it is the application of knowledge in a particular area or field. So if I am to enumerate the reasons why we u technology today it would take much of time to enumerate it all because there are a lot of reasons for using technology. But generally, for me the major reasons why we use technology are:
-to ADOPT with the changing environment we are living in.
-to DISCOVER and LEARN new techniques.
-to MAKE LIFE EASIER.

As human beings, we use technology for us to adopt on the changes happening around us. As the saying goes, ‘there is nothing constant in the world but change’. We live by adopting the changes in the environment. For us to adopt with the changes we try to discover new things and techniques and learn from them. And the most common reason which I could say would sum up all the reasons of using technology is to make life easier. All the reasons we could think of why we use technology would point to the reason on making our life easier.

Influences
DIFFERENCES could be one thing that influences us on the use of technology. Since us human beings are of different thinking, we make use of different kinds of technology or maybe on different fields. And with these people try to enhance the technology to make it better than the other.

Technology change
Technology needs to undergo some changes since we also need to adapt to the environment and that is one main reason. Another would be human thinking itself because we always tend to think of something better and something new.

Why we use technology today?

A big change came to this world when people embraced technology today. Lots of reasons why that change happened. Below are some:

Very Happy Transportation: As part of technology, such that vehicle let the people go to each destinations.
Very Happy Communication: Through technology, everyone can communicate to each other especially to the people which far from their loved ones. Such medium that can be enumerate: email through internet and texts through cellphones. Also through the use of television, broadcasting news is visible and possible.
Very Happy Education: Technology also plays a big part in education. By using internet, students gain more knowledge and information by just browsing what is needed to be understand. Though it has also disadvantages but it is a matter of how they use technology.

Idea Some points that influenced us:

One reason that i can say that influenced us to use such technology is that the era itself. People tend to use it because we are in a world of modern technology. People have no choice but to adopt such changes that they (we) are facing.

Idea Factors involved in technology change:

Technology is not constant. It keeps on evolving because there is no satisfaction that every genuine ideas is going to take. It is like in developing a system where there's no perfect functionalties which it keeps on changing because there are some ideas that has been realized later by the developer or the client.

I think to go with the flow of the people around us. We are living in a world of machines or what we call a modernized generation, which when we look from side to side one thing that we can see is some machines working with people or produce for our usage.


What are the factors involved in technology change?

Satisfaction and Human Skills. Satisfaction because when people are not satisfied he needs changes to it that's why when a technology doesn't satisfied its target it needs to have some developments in order to address the problem. And Human Skills because their are some people have brilliant ideas which can produce some amazing works for another features and technologies which they think that it can easily adapt in the environment.

Why we use technology today?


Technology is an absolute need we cannot escape from. Let's just say, it has a very big role in most aspects of our lives. In other words, it answers most of Mankind problems. Across centuries technology evolves. The importance of technology is aiming for comfort of use in whichever form it is. It always directs for easiness in life. The fact that the importance of technology in our daily basis is undeniable has inspired scientists to make improvements from time to time through their invented tools and devices for us to use, just to make our lives easier. We always tend to make one step ahead. Technology can help not just with the present but also approximating the future. It can calculate the potential profits and losses. And based on these, we can create plans and a list of pre-cautious steps for the future of our descendants.

What are some points that have influenced us?

There are many reasons why we are using this technology. What influenced us? People nowadays are hook to this widely spread of modern technologies, and I must say that the people surrounds us is the very reason why we engage in using technologies. Hence, what we see is what we get. The influenced of Media, Advertisements, School, Works, and even the futuristic idea of persons may influence us in using technology.

In today’s modern age, where technology has become a lot more accessible compared to a few decades before, the reasons for using technology hasn’t really changed that much. Technology is being used and is constantly evolving primarily to make our lives easier. For the most part, technology has provided us with better convenience in our lifestyle. Take communication technology for instance. Using a mobile phone is far more convenient because of its portability and convenience compared to using wired telephone which is bulky and static. It has become a trend for most gadgets nowadays to become smaller but with jam-packed functionalities just like its other bigger counterpart. E-commerce technology is another example that also brought convenience to improve our shopping experience.

Aside from convenience, technology has also allowed us to save important resources such as time and money. Efficiency is also another reason why we use technology. Convenience and efficiency generally go hand-in-hand that’s why most people patronize technology. From using snail mail that would take months before it arrive, technology advancement like E-mail has made messaging a lot faster and more interactive. Technology is used to automate activities to use time and resources more efficiently.

Due to the influence of popular media such as television programs, movies and the internet, the use of technology has reached a new perspective in the modern age. Aside from convenience and efficiency, the use of the latest technology has also become a new status symbol in our community. People with money have more opportunity to acquire technology, which enables them to acquire even more wealth. The trendiness of using technology has also emerged to be one of the reasons why we use technology.

The technological trends and changes are brought about by the demand of the people themselves. In my opinion, technological change is brought about by the following factors:
1.) The human need to improve the current state and;
2.) The human passion to create something desirable.
The constant need for improvement and the nature of discontentment of humans are the primary reasons why their is technological advancement. These are the core driving force for technology advancement and future innovation.

Technology has indeed brought many benefits to our community. It has changed our lifestyles into something more convenient, efficient and trendy. It is up to us to use it to our advantage and make the world we live in a better place than it is before.

Enumerate reasons why we use technology today. What are some points that have influenced us? What are the factors involved in technology change?

Technology is the set of tools both hardware (physical) and software (algorithms, philosophical systems, or procedures) that help us act and think better. Technology includes all the objects from a basic pencil and paper to the latest electronic gadget. Electronic and computer technology help, use and share information and knowledge quickly and efficiently. What was previously slow and tedious is now easier and more realistic. Any tool has the potential to remove the tedium and repetition that will allow us to perform that which is most human-- thinking, dreaming, and planning.

We use technology for the following reasons: (1) help us act and think better; (2) quick and efficient information dissemination; (3) ease of work; (4) profit; (5) faster transactions; etc

The points that have influenced us in using technology are: (1) curiosity; (2) today’s trend; (3) making life easier and better; etc

There are also factors that are involved in the change of technology and some of those are the following: (1) new ideas; (2) creativity; (3) uncontentment ; (4) people’s demands and needs; etc.

Technology:

Nowadays we were deeply surrounded by technology. This had pledged people the convenience out of everything. The application of this technology could either be useful or destructive depending on the approach applied by its user.
Technology which comes and applied in different forms has several purposes. People had been using technology basically to improve the quality of their lives and change the world. With the help of technology, people were given the opportunity to have an ease in their lives. Social aspects such as peer pressure and some organizational acts are still considered as reasons of having the people availing the technology.

The craving of individuals to gain knowledge had led to the innovation of technology. It had affected or rather changed the way they act, the way they approach things on life, their practices and the way they think. The introduction of technology had also modified the market. The merging of the market along with the technology had risen, which they called the convergence. With this, market had been accessible, secure and people can save their time along with their money. Interaction between the market producers and consumers had developed which opened the path for personalize things. Its evolution inadvertently leads to the evolution of business, the business that spots technological trends and learned to use it, gains an upper hand over their competition.

These technologies had greatly influenced the peoples’ lifestyle and environments. Having such advantages and continuous innovations, these technologies will further mature. And who knows? Your visions might fall to your hands through the application of these technologies.

Like a Star @ heaven for EDUCATION - most often used by students for the basic tasks of creating and editing text (word processing), solving math problems, and even creating software programs.

It had been encountered and emphasize many times to us IT student about technology. It had been discussed well on our discussion on this subject about the evolution of technology .The past, present and also the future technology that may involved in our community. In this case study, we are to discuss the reasons and the points why this technology influence us and the factors for the fast changing of technology.

With all those learning about technology, I can now enumerate not much but few of my understanding about why this technology influence us much.

We all know for the past times, people are searching for the better of living .In such way, the can communicate to their love one’s which made it able by Alexander Graham Bell when he made the telephone. They can watch entertainment, hear radio and also have their computers. There are also the transportation such us airplanes etc. This is discussed to us on our meeting discussion.

Searching for the better of living is not only for the past times but also for today. People really doesn’t contented in what they have. People explore and investigate the possibilities that may give much better than those things develop in the past. That’s why technology changes. In such way, like now technology is actually in it state of fast changing. You can’t imagine the time span of develop technology of the past and the technology now. It is really short; today technology is so “high tech”.

Because of this, people easily adopt it. For the convenience, easy life, and for saying that they are “sossy” like people whom love gadgets. These are the factors that I can say about technology is in our lives. For me without it, we can say that education is useless in some reasons.

Man is technology independent, almost all time people use technology. The work of people comes easy and light through the use in technology. People now can navigate around the world through land, seas and air. People can communicate people around the world and do understand each other’s differences- in races, language and culture is never an issue today, this is through using media that shows and teaches everything one need to know. Even synthesizing humanity is continuously being studied and developed; it is gradually improving and doing fine.

Reasons why use technology as well as the field where it is involved.

Technology Into Schools

1. Support Thinking Processes

Teachers believed on having computer-based technologies could provide support for thinking processes. And it is joyfully supported by student because problem-solving skills are being developed while having fun. Teaching strategies with the use of technology becomes effective and retain more than usual and traditional way. Students are not pressured in focusing to study because the instructional software caught student attention through the graphical and simulation effect the software provide. It also develops their visual and graphical skills as well as logical and analytical thinking skills through educational games and other software learning tools.

2. Simulate motivation and Self-esteem

Through technology student can find counsel and friends in social networking sites. In here, students can have someone to listen and understand one other; everyone can ask support anytime and anywhere. Aside from networking sites, there is an also video player site that showcases on self-motivation videos that explains about life and motivates viewer.
Through either personal experience or a review of the literature, many innovators perceived the dramatic effects that technology can have on students' interest in class activities and their sense of their own capabilities.

3. Prepare Students for the Future

Through the technology student is given an idea what the future looks like. Surfing the internet and even through television and radio broadcasting it tells the economy stability and newest trends of the world. All these, prepare the student what the course to the take and what job the world needed. So students can prepare ahead about what to expect in the future.

4. Explore the technology capability

Nowadays technology vulnerability is pretty obvious to anyone. Anybody can explore the full strength of the technology. Everyone can have a chance to experiment and develop new things using the basic information of technology formation and foundation. Technology is open to everyone.

Technology in Sport

Sport is prone to human error. Why can I say this? It is because some violation can’t be seen by the referee due to some circumstance like blocking the sight. This common error is obvious in the basketball and other more game. In order to recuperate the problem using cctv camera and other surveillance gadgets can reduce the error and maximize the full and equal performance of the players.

Technology in Entertainment

Entertainment uses technology to make animation and graphical effects that makes the entertainment more effective and eye catching. It help imagination can travel widely and make impossible things possible through animation. It also showcases informative and inspiring entertainment.

Technology in medicine

The use of technology in medical field is very prevalent from time to time new technology in saving life through the use o technology in the field of medicine help to save life. Many medicinal technology procedure help prolong life and cure severe diseases that is a very good and useful thing technology help improving life.

Technology in daily life

Almost all the time, we sometimes don’t mind it. We use simple and complicated machines in daily basis.
