Unit 2 assessment – individual and societal impacts


As you have explored in this unit, advancements in technology can have both individual and societal impacts. However, the impacts experienced by an individual are different than those experienced by society. Consider energy. The advent of new technologies to switch from fossil to renewable fuels may lead to loss of income, poverty, and homelessness. This can impact individual emotions, mental health, the sense of well-being, increased substance abuse, and changes in cognitive function; in contrast, technology may impact society and lead to changes in social mobility, public health, crime rates, social cohesion, and political stability.

In this assignment, you are asked to write an essay that includes your analysis of the chosen technology’s individual/sociological impacts. You may choose any recent (last 10 years) technological advancement to complete this assignment. Some areas to consider:

  • Communication
  • Transportation
  • Energy
  • Medicine
  • Education

Your completed essay will include at least one paragraph for each of the following:

  1. Description of the technological advancement chosen
