Science, Technology and Society (Part II):

Science, Technology and Society (Part II) 1 st Semester 2008 – 2009 Ms. Annalyn P. Diaz

Influences of Science and Technology:

Influences of Science and Technology Children highly commercialized baby feeds, increasing cost of education, extracurricular activities, junk foods, food fads and fallacies, malnourishment, violence, etc.

Influences of Science and Technology :

Influences of Science and Technology Elderly increasing demand for age-defying food supplements, increasing rate of facility care managements, immergence of caregivers and nursing attendants, creation of government programs designed to aged population etc….

Influences of Science and Technology:

Influences of Science and Technology Women violence, awareness on reproductive health, career-oriented / focus lifestyle, increasing scale of vanity products (cosmetics), socio-civic organization for the protection of women’s rights, etc.

Influences of Science and Technology:

Influences of Science and Technology Health From euthanasia to cloning; standard versus the extraordinary; the conventional against contemporary medical managements, from eastern to western medicines etc.

Influences of Science and Technology:

Influences of Science and Technology Work Place from symposiums to hands-on and trainings, from apprenticeship to certification programs, etc….

Influences of Science and Technology:

Influences of Science and Technology Home / Family violence to responsible parenthood to the protection of the rights of each and every member of the family (Bantay Bata 163, Emergency 117, etc.)

Character of Modern Everyday Living :

Character of Modern Everyday Living Multiplicity * requires that the individual acquire a more rigorous filter for choosing among the expanded ranges of options if a productive path is to be steered between the paralyses of non-choice to the dissipation of the hyper choice.

Character of Modern Everyday Living:

Character of Modern Everyday Living Material Abundance * without such tangible (with the provision of the intangible matter with regards to science and technology) things, dynamics of STS is impossible. At the same time, the things that they are contriving or reinventing are the things that existed before by needs modification for a more specific or detailed use.

Character of Modern Everyday Living :

Character of Modern Everyday Living Flow * It also involves the pattern of behavior in accordance with the morals and ethics of the society where ST exists. Pattern of human activity that individual, family, community and the whole country. Involves the way of living which are interrelated to each and every individual, be it small or large group.

Character of Modern Everyday Living :

Character of Modern Everyday Living Pace * Refers to the speed and transition of human behavior, activities, standards, interests, etc.

Character of Modern Everyday Living :

Character of Modern Everyday Living Transience * STS has the power to change but also has the capability to remain still.

Character of Modern Everyday Living:

Character of Modern Everyday Living Scale * Meaning the scale of modern science and technology can be gauge in terms of population size, human settlements, human gatherings, social organizations, etc.

Character of Modern Everyday Living :

Character of Modern Everyday Living Mobility * In the presence of transient human dynamics, the people has the power to move people, information, materials, ideations, etc.

Character of Modern Everyday Living:

Character of Modern Everyday Living Technicity * The extent to which technics pervade everyday life.

Polymorphism:

Polymorphism Unfolding in many forms

Process of Development of Technology:

Process of Development of Technology Identification of Scientific Need Design Production Phase Utilization Phase

Process of Development of Science:

Process of Development of Science Identification of interest of the practitioner Formulation of theory Application Assessment Adaptation / Rejection

Characteristics of Output of Technology / Science:

Characteristics of Output of Technology / Science Technics – involves the designs, planning, production and use of procedures or system. Technics Related to Intellectual Constructs – are the products of brainstorming, criticizing, construction, remodelling and finally for the utilization of the society

Characteristics of Output of Technology / Science:

Characteristics of Output of Technology / Science 3. Theory-based – the end result are supported with theory and extensive research. It does not only involve coordination, organization and explanation but has to have validity and dependability / reliability.

Characteristics of Output of Technology / Science:

Characteristics of Output of Technology / Science 4. Sociotechnical System Analysis – involves reconstruction and construction on the basis of the data gathered through the evaluation process

Characteristics of Contemporary Science:

Characteristics of Contemporary Science Abstract and Abstruse Nature – science can be as simple as growing plant and can be as complex as the universe. Theory Dependence – as always science is the body of knowledge, therefore, technology is impossible without science.

Characteristics of Contemporary Science:

Characteristics of Contemporary Science Interdependent / Inseparable – science is developed towards the enhancement of science and technology for the use of society. Without it, development of society is unattainable.

Settings of Science and Technology:

Settings of Science and Technology Collaboration – other members of a certain field of science and technology work independently towards one goal or outcome. Management – involves planning, organizing, directing and controlling. Training and Specialization – a specific field of science has certain limitations, accountabilities and responsibilities

Salient Characteristic Trends in Contemporary Science and Technology:

Salient Characteristic Trends in Contemporary Science and Technology Increasing Scale – connoting the large amount of technical apparatus increasingly used in activities International Character Rationalization – increasing importance of the results of scientific research in the knowledge base of technology Symbiotic Interdependence

Characteristics of Contemporary Technology:

Characteristics of Contemporary Technology Complexity – complexity in terms production, structure, operation and utilization of science and technology. System-embedded – science and technology offers alternatives in case of failure or inoperative system occurred.

Characteristics of Contemporary Technology:

Characteristics of Contemporary Technology Production Specialization and Incomprehensibility – the deeper the specialization in science and technology, the more incomprehensible to other members of the society Formalized Technical Procedures – are systems embodied in the computer programs related to design, maintenance of operation and production.
