Are you really being as green as you thought? How can technology and the environment survive together? Choices in technology such as telecommuting, electronic books, social media, and cell phones may not be as green as you may think. Some of it is very good, and we will explore the good technology along with the bad. How can computing technology help achieve sustainability such as smart buildings and smart transportation systems. This will be a discussion-based course. Students will be encouraged to describe, interpret, and evaluate the impact of computer technology on the environment. Students will discuss articles, media, and other reflective information to uncover the positives and negatives of computers and technology on our world. As an introductory course, no prior computer experience is needed.
