Salas erlinda sts2010_assignment Presentation Transcript

  • 1. SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
    GOOD FOR THE SOCIETY
  • 2. SCIENCE
    “Science refers to that dynamic, cumulative system of verifiable concepts, principles, methods, laws, theories and processes which seek to describe, understand, and predict natural phenomena.” (Posadas, 1982)
  • 3. TECHNOLOGY
    “…that dynamic cumulative system of reproducible methods, techniques, and processes which may be derived from empirical know-how or scientific knowledge and which are used by human societies for the production, improvement, and distribution of goods and services as well as the satisfaction of other material needs.” (Posadas, 1982)
  • 4. How good are Science and Technology to the society?
    Extremely! Science and technology has helped human societies in various areas.
  • 5. Medicine
    Science and technology help provide ways in:
    detecting illnesses easily at their early stage
    finding cure
    lessening the pain that patients are suffering from
    providing better care for the health patients.
  • 6. Education
    • Computers and the internet made learning and researching a lot easier for educators and learners.
    • 7. S & T made distance education possible.
  • Communication
    Communication has never been better, cheaper and easier if not for science and technology.
    S&T allows telephone conversations, online video calls, emailing, instant messaging, text messaging and social networking.
    Sharing videos, images and other files easily and efficiently are also made possible through S&T developments.
  • 8. Food Development
    Food and water are two of the main things that people need to survive. When it comes to these two basic human needs, science and technology help us:
    obtain clean water
    better our food supply
    develop ways on food preservation.
  • 9. Summary:
    Science and technology are invaluable to different areas of our society such as medicine, education, communication and food development. For instrumentalists, technology has no morality and I believe we can also say the same for science. At the end of the day, it is up to us, the members of our society, if we want to use them for the betterment or detriment of our society. In spite of some bad side effects that resulted from S&T advancements, the fact still remains that both science and technology have immensely benefitted our society’s growth.
