When we talk about technology and IS (information systems) we tend to focus on computers. Instead, in this course we examine the ‘big picture’ of technology, in order to gain a better understanding of what computers can do for us and when we should switch off our computers, smartphones, tablets and wearables. We cover some of the fundamental concepts of technology and IS but the aim is not to provide an in-depth understanding of specific applications, but to help you develop a context for the technologies you encounter and to help you understand the changes in the technology landscape.
