Research Introduction

Besides learning how to create technology solutions, it's also important to understand the broader context of how computing impacts society. For example:

  • How do new developments in computing technology affect society?

  • What are the social and ethical concerns with the use (or misuse) of technology?

  • What career pathways are available in computing?

You’ll conduct research to learn more about certain topics in computing. Then you’ll share and discuss your research findings with other people.

CHOOSING A TOPIC: Your teacher will identify which specific research topic(s) you should research, as well as the deadline for completing and presenting your research findings.
