Transcript of How Information Technology impacted Culture, Entertainment, & Cultural Biasis.

Impact of Information Technology on Culture. Society has always been impacted by technology. Each invention has affected how people relate to one another and how cultures have expanded or ended. Technology impacts how cities grow, where people live, and who owns what. Technologies are the reason a few people are very rich, that people are more social, and that teaching and learning is changing. We are at a crucial time in history where we as educators can make a difference in how our students interact with one another and make a place for themselves in society.
All these little changes in mobile phones, like Internet access, are further examples of the cycle of co-production. Society's need for being able to call on people and be available everywhere resulted in the research and development of mobile phones. They in turn influenced the way we live our lives. As the populace relies more and more on mobile phones, additional features were requested. This is also true with today's modern media player. Impact of Information Technology on Entertainment The explosion of ownership and ever-increasing performance capabilities of personal computers, mobile phones and other information communication technology (ICT) devices, the development of satellite, cable and other networks, as well as increased bandwidth, have spawned new forms of distribution through which media and entertainment products and services are made available. The restructuring of the media and entertainment industries and their inclusion in a trend towards an integrated information industry is driven to a large extent by these major developments in technology, for which the term convergence is widely used.(1) This convergence is based on technological innovations in microelectronics, computers and telecommunications. Through digitalization, all kinds of data -- irrespective of origin -- can be manipulated and integrated on the basis of their common informational structure. In addition, the development of optical fibre and satellite technology has created the possibility for rapid transmission of increasing amounts of information per second. The development of integrated circuits and the exponentially increasing capacity of microchips have also been crucial for data communication and integrating different kinds of electronic communication.

Impact of Information Technology On Cultural Bias. Cultural bias is interpreting and judging phenomena in terms particular to one's own culture. This is a danger in any field of knowledge that claims objectivity and universality, such as philosophy and the natural sciences. The problem of cultural bias is central to social and human sciences, such as Economics, Psychology, Anthropology and Sociology, which have had to develop methods and theories to compensate for or eliminate cultural bias.
