Capstone Papers-Technological Mediation

In a two- to three-page journal reflect on the effect a specific technological change has had on your life. Review Peter-Paul Verbeek’s video about “technological mediation” in which he explains how technology both creates new ways for us to act in the world while also shaping the way we experience the world in the first place.

Think about how a specific new technology has shaped how you experience things in your everyday life, how you relate to other people, how you relate to time, etc. It is helpful to think about this in terms of a change, considering how your experience now is different than it was before the invention of that technology.
