Week 3: Technology Stewardship

I was confused as Technology Stewardship comes to the topic of this weekly blog. It never come to my mind why I use so many online tools or what I am good at because technology (especially on electronic equipment)  get involved life so quickly as to I was not aware that I use every day and it seems I can not live with them.

Currently I am learning how to use solidwork. I have experienced Google SketchUP. And I am ready to go to learn Indesign and Photoshop what ever software would be useful for designers. As I  was studying Mechanical Engineering for one year Autocad is not problem for me, I think. If you read here please tell me what kind of softwares could help me on designing after.

Unfortunately social media and websites are completely different from here than China. That is why I am still exploring Facebook world. As for Twitter or others I have no idea what they are but I’d like to try them if they interest me.

  1. Another usefull thing would be to ask one of your fellow classmates who is NOT from China to explain a few of the social media uses here. Show them the ones you know as well. Show me 🙂

    Isn’t it amazing how many levels Google is in on your picture?
    Is it a Google pic or from somewhere else?

    Your observation about the differences in social media between Holland and China is really important — and important for both of the NGO clients, as not all of their users will be in one single country, so that may be something to bring up with your team.

    Your observation that you had not reflected on the tools you use is probably pretty common. That’s the value of courses like this – to take a moment to reflect and see what we can learn together.

    I’d love to learn more about Google sketchup. Maybe do a Hangout and you can show me and we can record it to share?
