ECOMP 6020 Digital Technology: How It Works

This course focuses on conceptual understanding of how digital technologies work, both technically (internally) and practically (with humans). The course demystifies digital technology and expands students' knowledge of the deep commonalities as well as the differences between its different forms. Digital technology is studied in its social and historical contexts, revealing the relations between people and the technology they use, in and outside classrooms, and how both technology and those relations change symbiotically over time.
