COVID-19 and Technology

coronavirus-gov

 

Hello all,

Today I had to submit an essay on a debatable topic and how it affects today’s society. The topic I chose is technology. Upon further research for my essay I’ve come to find out that we are in for some rude awakenings if we are behind the curb in the technology arena. What do I mean by this? Well just look at the news, there are tons of lay offs and people have no idea whats next. On another hand companies are forcing their employees, if possible, to work from home. Before I go further let’s talk about the kids and school, it looks like there is about to be a lot of online learning occurring from within our homes. All of this in turn will  create more demands in the tech sector, for the expansion of course and it will also create some challenges on the other hand for those who may not be so tech savvy. I encourage everyone to do some research or speak with someone that can assist you with any changes that may be challenging during these times. I will update my blog within the coming days with resources so that we can all work together without panic. I will also be discussing how us tech people can capitalize during these trying times. Stay tuned!

Google seems to be offering tons of resources to students, teachers,job seekers and even developers! It’s worth a look to see what all they have to offer.
