What is Technology?

Technology comes in many shapes, forms and sizes. It ranges from MP3 players, that we listen to our favorite songs on, to large screen (plasma, LCD or DLP) televisions that we enjoy to watch our favorite sports and movies. Technology also refers to the netbooks, "miniature" laptops that have become today's rave, to laptops with 20" screens that put to shame the small DVD movie players from just 10 years ago. Technology is also the science of innovation and having the ability to perform what were once manual tasks to being automated.

Technology has many different "flavors" and the flavor that I have focused on is technology as a tool more so than as a source of entertainment. Technology and technology literacy are important tools to have as a means for human capital development. Let's further explore the importance of technology literacy to you.
