At the start of the semester, we completed a group exercise wherein we identified and tried to articulate “human values”. In trying to make this abstract idea more concrete, we generated a list. Some of the ideas were as follows: Justice Connection (family, friends, social relationships, telling stories) Security (health, safety) Superiority / Exceptionalism / Progress (belief in being “better” or “the best” or an emphasis on continual achievement and exploration) Opportunity (a chance to become all things listed above!) Freedom (some mentioned: thinking, speech, religion) For our final project, each member of the class will research a technology they find directly related to what we collectively identified as basic human needs or "values", represented in the list above or modifying and adapting the value as you see fit. After doing some research/thinking and coming up with an example, you will present your findings in EITHER a short paper (4-5 pages) you must be sure to include a references or works cited list.
