Then, each student will discuss how he or she uses technology in their everyday lives and how the use of that technology affects them. Next, students will read the Knowledge@Wharton article: “’Being Cautious Is to Stop Moving’: How Innovation and Entrepreneurship Can Bring Societal Change,” and discuss how technology can increase productivity and efficiency in public life. Then, students will work in groups to devise a plan based on how they can use technology to solve a problem in their community.
