Create a PowerPoint presentation with Presenter Notes detailing your plan. This should consist of 10-12 slides. Include the following: A title slide depicting your name and the title of your project
This should consist of 10-12 slides. Include the following: A title slide depicting your name and the title of your project
Include 1-2 slides each on: an overview of the technology, benefits of this technology, an overview of ethical, legal, safety, and privacy issues related to this technology, an overview of your projected implementation of this technology in your current or future workplace.
Create a slide which describes what you think are present and future implications for nurses with respect to technology in general, and this technology specifically.
Create a reference slide and put all references used in presentation.
5 professional references are required, and in-text citations on individual slides are needed.
Add presenter notes to the slide which enhance the content of the slides, as if you were presenting to a group, and this is your script. In PPT, access “notes view” to see the presenter notes boxes. Slides should not contain paragraphs of narrative. They should contain only bullet points or brief explanations. The longer narratives go in your presenter notes.

We live in times of rapid technological change. New forms of technology–such as the Internet, personal digital assistants and mobile phones, to name but a few–require further understandings and capabilities to comprehend and conform to new ways of doing things.
New technology has the capacity to shape and reform societal norms, often dictating how things are done. It can also be said that the reverse is often true, in that society shapes and forms new technologies (Pullen, 2008). In this information rich society information and communication technologies (ICT) are at the heart of human life and social developments. People have always worked together and communicated via speech, writing and the printed word (Scouter, 2003).
The rapid advancement of computers and communication technologies has reached a point where technology is omnipresent in almost every facet of our lives. This has enabled individuals and society to become interconnected in ways that were previously unimaginable, making access to information easier and transforming how we communicate (Finger, Russell, Jamieson-Proctor & Russell, 2007).
The advancement of the Internet in the early 1990s, resulted in the concept of the global village and subsequently new ways of teaching and learning involving hypertext, multimodality and virtual classrooms. This rapid rise in fast, mass communication has reached the point that in order to live, learn and work successfully we must learn to use technology efficiently and effectively. This has lead to a new term called technoliteracy which in effect refers to how literate one is with technology and how they use the technology to communicate.
Strongly associated with the rise of digital technologies, specifically computers, which are becoming more affordable and available, society has had to change to keep pace with technological developments.
This upsurge of technologies can be attributed to how society has changed from an ‘industrial-based’ economy, referred to as the industrial age, to a ‘knowledge-based’ economy, known as the information age (Cepeda, 2006; Davenport & Prusak, 2000). As a result of these technologically driven changes, labour markets are changing from an industrial base to a knowledge production process, where work practices are being transformed.
This context demands a more specialised, highly educated, flexible and technologically savvy workforce (Meredyth, Russell, Blackwood, Thomas & Wise, 1999). Corresponding with the transformation from an industrial age to an information age, society in general has also had to adapt to technological advancements, just as labour markets have and are continuing to do.
The implications and global scale of this change have significant global, regional, local and individual repercussions. To varying degrees, all individuals, organisations and societies are affected by this change and “only those who realign their practices most effectively to the information age … will reap … benefits. Those who do not will be … diminished by … competitors” (Dolence & Norris, 1995, p. 2).
