Describe a social, cultural, or global event where a technology plays a significant role.

For this activity, you will write a short paper introducing a specific technology that influenced a social, cultural, or global event of your choice. You may use the topic that you worked with in the previous activity or choose a new topic now that you have reflected further. If you are selecting a new topic, do some preliminary research to make sure you can address the required elements of your project.
You should begin to gather the sources you will integrate into your project, which will include two resources from the Module Resources sections of this course and two resources that you find through your own research. It may be beneficial to identify more than the number of sources required for the project so you can eventually choose the most useful and credible. You are not required to answer each question below the rubric criteria, but you may use them to better understand the criteria and guide your thinking and writing.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
I. Integrate reliable evidence from varied sources throughout your paper to support your analysis.It is important to draw from a diverse pool of perspectives from varied sources to support the analysis. This is different from the Citations and Attributions rubric criterion.Reliable evidence from varied sources should be interwoven throughout the paper itself, while citing and attributing sources will be represented as APA in-text citations and a reference list at the end of your work.You will be evaluated on both criteria.
II. Describe a social, cultural, or global event where a technology plays a significant role. Include information such as how the event originated and what it is about.What main points should you include about your event? How did your event start? What other details are needed to ensure a thorough description?
III. Describe the technology significant to this event. Include information such as what the technology does and how it might help influence change.Be sure to include any unexpected ways that the technology influenced the event.
IV. Assess the societal or cultural influences of the technology involved in the event.What stories clearly illustrate how the technology has impacted the lives and experiences of people involved in the social, cultural, or global event?
V. Explain your choice of one general education interdisciplinary lens for analyzing the technology and its role in the event.What made you choose one lens over the others? Was it an easy decision? Why or why not?
VI. Construct a thesis statement that combines your event, the technology, the societal or cultural influences, and choice of general education interdisciplinary lens.Your thesis statement should clearly and concisely state the relationships between your event, technology, societal or cultural differences, and lens. It acts as a hypothesis proposing how these elements will work together during your critical analysis.=================================================================================================
