Information Communication Technology

Throughout this course, you will submit four written assignments separately, which will ultimately comprise your final project. Your paper should be logically organized, cohesive, and incorporate any feedback that your mentor gave on your assignments.
For this assignment, you will prepare a white paper of 15–20 pages (about 300 words per page) in APA format on a specific technology (e.g., genetically modified foods or cloning of animals) within your area of discipline. You should select an applied technology that was either successfully implemented or failed. The paper, although technically focused, does not necessarily require the researcher/author to include a significant amount of technical data about the system. The focus should include an overview, identifying impact, perspectives, and trends for a particular technology. The paper should include four topics and at least two items from each topic. Each section should be between 4–5 pages. See the summary table below for details.
