Computer Technology Reflection

Amazing Essays
In this introduction to Computer Applications, we looked at different topics in relation to computer technology. Among the subjects we looked at were a worldview of technology, various media websites for clip art, animation, and graphics, and using Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. I would like to reflect on these topics and critique a classmates PowerPoint presentation as this class comes to an end.
When I started this course on computer technology, I really did not consider computer technology as part of a world view. I simply used computers as a tool. Having worked for an airline, I made extensive use of computers for flight planning and flight operations. Now I use a computer to attend school online. It opens up different opportunities and is a very useful tool. For me, it is how the tool is used that is good or evil. This core belief has not changed much through this course. However, it has been expanded upon and deepened as a result of taking this course.
Thinking about questions like, “what does it mean to be human?” did not seem applicable in relation to computer technology. I shrugged it off as science fiction. This question is an important question philosophically, and its answer

I liked the title page and the layout of her presentation. The information was offered in a logical order and was easy to follow. The layout of the slides, graphics and changing the look of the slides made it visually appealing. My only criticism is some of the animations and slide transitions were distracting to me. The transition between page one and two was a little slow for me and the spinning chart on page two was too distracting. The fading out of the words on page eight before moving to page nine did not seem necessary to me. Overall, I felt that it was a very good presentation and appreciate the creativity that was put into the

    It is not unusually to hear it a couple of times during one scene, which can get a little grating. Although not particularly deep, How To Take Off Your Mask is well written and explores some interesting themes. It is still rather linear, but the branching storyline and choices at least provides it with a bit more replay value than a kinetic visual novel. The likeable characters and strong humor definitely sets…

    However, this does not mean that Kuhn rejects completely the falsification principle. Because both philisophers agree that one time falsification is not enough to cause scientists/people to stop believing in a science or a theory. Lastly, I would like to express my opinion based on my reading about critisim of Popper and puzzle-solver science of Kuhn, what Kuhn 's and Popper 's contribution looks more complemantary than contradictory even though Kuhn 's view differs from Popper 's view in many ways. However, this is a subject for a long essay not for short essay. 3.…

    The use of computers within the classroom allows a student to learn how to operate a computer in a work environment (Dretzin, Rushkoff, 2010). The use of software programs such as Microsoft Office, Microsoft word and PowerPoint, enhances a student’s computer skills that one might need for future reference. Since technology is on the rise, the idea empowers a student’s technological potential.

    Science deals with our understanding of the physical world around us. We use it to test theories that we’ve formed through observation. By actively testing the theories with the intent of disproving them, we gather more information that supports our idea. However, pseudoscience is a belief that is often presented as being scientific, but does not hold up against the scientific method because it cannot be tested or disproven. Popper discusses that it is an issue when someone considers pseudoscience to be a science.…

    I, however, had never thought about pursuing computer science as a career until I took an introductory class in my junior year. It sparked my interest and changed my thoughts after seeing what I could do with some simple line of codes. Inspite of those countless times when I was sitting in front of the computer screen trying to figure out how to solve a problem, those ‘Aha’ moments were more precious and exciting to me every single time. These experiences slowly pulled me into the course of a new career, computer science. Pursuing a degree in this field can provide me knowledge and skills.…
