IDS 403 Milestone Four: Analyzing an Issue or Event in Technology through the Lenses of the Natural and Applied Sciences and the Social Sciences

Overview

For the first part of your final project, the critical analysis portfolio, you will select a specific issue or event in technology and critically analyze it through the four general education lenses: history, humanities, social sciences, and natural and applied sciences. By viewing the issue or event through these lenses, you will gain insight into how the interconnected nature of technology affects society as well as both your own individual framework of perception and the choices, attitudes, and behaviors of others in the world around you.


For this fourth milestone, due in Module Six, you will analyze your issue or event in technology through the lenses of the natural and applied sciences and the social sciences. Like Milestone Two, this task provides you with an opportunity to dive deeper into your analysis of the issue or event through these two lenses.

Prompt

First, review your work in Modules Five and Six as well as the Four Lenses document from Module One.

Next, analyze your popular-culture artifact through the natural and applied sciences by exploring the following questions:

How does this issue or event provide a social commentary through the natural and applied sciences?

In what ways can science help resolve or enhance your issue or event?

Next, analyze your popular-culture artifact through the lens of the social sciences, and address the following:

How does this issue or event interact with the social sciences lens and impact social issues?

In what ways does the Social Science lens help articulate a deeper understanding of the social issue(s) that inform your issue or event?

This milestone provides you with a chance to practice analyzing your issue or event through these lenses and receive feedback on this practice attempt.

Note: You are completing two separate analyses: one from the natural and applied sciences and one from the social sciences. You must submit two papers in a single Word document.

Be sure to use evidence from research to support your analysis. Refer to course resources, the LibGuide for this course, as well as any other pertinent resources to support your responses. Relevant current news sources may be used with instructor approval. Incorporate instructor feedback into your final project.

The following critical elements must be addressed:
