What is global technology and development?
Global technology and development uses international development and scientific disciplines to better understand and more capably address global issues. Examples include addressing climate change, delivering accessible health care and education and providing clean drinking water.
There are two key components of global and technology development:
- Recognizing the ability of technology to affect societies.
- Understanding how changes in societies lead to technological innovation.
While technology is a foundational focus, this discipline takes many other concepts into account. Depending on the specific context of a project, considerations such as history, religion and society can all come into play. Effective development needs more than just the right technology and data. Implementation often requires a strong grasp of a community’s culture.
What is technology’s role in global development?
Technology, which is taken to mean every sort of tool or system used by society to advance its goals, affects social, political and economic processes and outcomes.
Will my global technology and development degree say 'online'?
No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.” That’s because ASU Online students learn from the same faculty and receive the same course content as in-person students receive.
