What Is Technology And What Does It All Mean? by Mind Map: What Is Technology And What Does It All Mean?

1. What Did Technology Mean To Me?

1.1. Prior to reading any of the material, and watching videos, I always considered technology something more than just phones, tablets or computers.

1.2. Technology, as a whole, would generally make life easier, such as Neanderthals making simple tools thousands of years ago. These "tools" that they would eventually make and build would lead to create new tools and better "technology".

1.3. I believe that technology is something that we build upon, taking something older and making a new and better product from that, or even creating something entirely new from scratch.
