IS 308 - Ecology & Computer Technology (3)

The course will ask students to consider the relationship between ecology and computer-related technology at three levels: (1) how efforts to preserve the environment and remediate environmental problems are dependent on the advances in technology and how advances in technology sometimes cause damage to the environment; (2) how technology helps scientists doing field study; and (3) how personal technology use affects a person’s experience with their surroundings and especially the natural environment. Students should gain a greater appreciation for the environment and for the need to preserve it and for wisely used computer technology, and they should better understand how personal technology usage habits affect their life quality of life.  2015 CORE: Interdisciplinary Studies.
