For my synthesis I chose Nelson, Goldberg, and Bush. I connected them with the five concepts: communication, benefits of computers, older generations/computer incompetent people’s view on technology, technological advancements/steps towards advancements, and brain processes/personal connections. These five concepts were put under the central topic of technology and its effects on humans and all around development.
I chose the topic title that I did because they all talk about different ways that computers have advanced us and how we interact and process the information from these advances.
For the concepts I chose them because:
-communication: we all communicate with or about technology. Some ways we help each other and some ways we don’t. Technology helps us express ourselves as well, which is a type of communication.
-benefits: each author had different but similar ideas as to why we should use computers (aka their benefits)
-computer incompetent: some people don’t understand or are unwilling to understand computers/technology and each author covered why they think so. It is important to know, because it may differ or be the same as your opinion of technology
-advancements: each had one or more different ideas/concepts/advances that help technology improve which ties into the “all around development” (which I hope is self-explanatory)
-brain processes: we all have some kind of effect from computers, whether it is the way we process information or how we respond to it
