Laurence “Larry” Huizinga▸ Digital Technologies in Society (Task 2)

Task 1: Digital technologies in society
Option 1: Three examples of how digital technologies benefit society.

1. Websites which allow citizen science such as the Atlas of Living Australia . People can record and compare what others have found in areas, including rare and endangered species.

2. Apps on phones are keeping families together e.g. WhatsApp and is countering the fact that sometimes technology can individualise members in society. An example, these apps allow family to share holiday pics or to relive a moment.

3. Being able to complete forms and paperwork online e.g. Tax Returns, Centrelink, Banking has made things much easier for society. Elderly people are able to carry out banking or reporting for Centrelink in an easy manner.
