What Is Technology?

Technology is the application of knowledge and techniques to creatively organise tasks involving people and machines that meet practical goals in a sustainable manner.

The use of technologies has increased rapidly over the past few decades, transforming our world in ways that are still unfolding. From cars to smartwatches, from satellites to artificial intelligence, the impact of technological innovations on our lives is vast.

Definition of Technology:

The word ‘technology’ is used to describe the application of scientific knowledge and engineering skills to organised tasks involving people and machines that meet practical, commercial, production, environmental and social objectives. It is a broad term, but it often has a sector-specific meaning that can be applied to specific areas such as computers, communications, electronics or software.

Advantages of Technology:

Automation – Increases efficiency and production: Technological resources help businesses increase productivity by automating repetitive and redundant operations that would otherwise take a long time to complete manually. These automated processes ensure improved accuracy and save significant costs.

Improves the flow of information: Technological devices and programs make it easier for business employees to share information among departments and with external partners. This enables them to access information quickly and efficiently from anywhere, which helps in making crucial decisions.

Enhances learning:

The use of technology in the classroom prepares students for technical working environments that are expected to be increasingly prevalent in the future. It also helps them develop problem-solving skills that they can apply to their own work and personal lives.
