In the readings for this module, you will find both discussions of the social processes of technological and social innovation as well as suggestions about where technologies may be going. Obviously, we can only touch on a few of the creative and innovative developments taking place around us. This assignment calls for you to further investigate specific kinds of innovations that are currently under development, and think about how they will affect both using and non-using organizations and society generally down the road.
You can start with the background reading for suggestions about technologies to research, but you should also plan on doing searches using terms such as “emerging new creative technologies” or variants on that theme to identify new things you may not necessarily be aware of. Spread your search net broadly, and you will find a variety of interesting new developments to discuss.
Prepare a 5- to 7-page paper in accordance with the following Assignment Expectations, on the topic:
“Emerging new creative technologies and what they will require organizations to do differently.”
Discuss at least three specific new technological developments that you know about personally or can research using the Internet. Describe them in some detail and provide references to them. Think about what they will require of their users that is not being done now, and how organizations might have to change to incorporate them. Estimate their long-term effects and what further developments they might stimulate. Conclude with a couple of paragraphs summarizing your conclusions across all the cases you have discussed.
Length: The written component of this assignment should be 5-7 pages long (double-spaced) without counting the cover page and reference page.
Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper according to the questions.
Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity. We encourage you to use tools such as grammarly.com and proofread your paper before submission.
