In order to understand the world around us, it's imperative to see how technology impacts our understanding of what it means to be human. We exist in relation to the world and technology is a mediator that connects the human and the world, thus having an awareness of the impact that it has on our personal lives, the ways in which society operates or how we develop frameworks of understanding of the world is important to consider. For example, material hermeneutics stood out to me as technologies mediate our understanding of the world and even what we are able to physically see. Examples in medicine (x-rays, MRIs, biopsies) and science (astronomy) are built to see into these fields of study. This makes me wonder about what this would look like in an educational context. Something that comes into mind is how we use technologies to see global issues (ex. news).
