Technology is intervention by design: the use of practical and intellectual resources to develop products and systems (technological outcomes) that expand human possibilities by addressing needs and realising opportunities. Adaptation and innovation are at the heart of technological practice. Quality outcomes result from thinking and practices that are informed, critical and creative. Technology makes enterprising use of its own particular knowledge and skills, together with those of other disciplines. Graphics and other forms of visual representation offer important tools for exploration and communication. Technology is never static or neutral. Technology carries values embedded within it; it is influenced by and in turn impacts on the cultural, ethical, environmental, political and economic conditions of the day. Technology has the potential to transform thoughts, practices and communities.
