Welcome to class!

In today’s class, we will be talking about the technology of different information age. Enjoy the class!

Technology of Different Information Age

computer is an electronic device that manipulates information or data. It can store, retrieve, and process data. You may already know that you can use a computer to type documents, send an email, play games, and browse the Web.

Technology is the skills, methods, and processes used to achieve goals. People can use technology to: Produce goods or services. Carry out goals, such as scientific investigation or sending a spaceship to the moon. Solve problems, such as disease or famine.

  • Stone Age:

The Stone Age was a broad prehistoric period during which stone was widely used to make implements with an edge, a point, or a percussion surface. The period lasted roughly 3.4 million years and ended between 8700 BCE and 2000 BCE with the advent of metalworking.

The Stone Age is divided into three distinct periods: the Paleolithic Period or Old Stone Age (30,000 BCE–10,000 BCE), the Mesolithic Period or Middle Stone Age (10,000 BCE–8,000 BCE), and the Neolithic Period or New Stone Age (8,000 BCE–3,000 BCE).

stone age

It is called the Stone Age because the most common edged tools humans had been made of stone. When humans began to smelt metal and make edged metal tools, the Stone Age ended and the Bronze Age began. … (We know about these tools because they did not all rot away, so they can still be found.

Some of the animals of the Stone Age are:

  1. Woolly Mammoth (Extinct)
  2. Woolly Rhinoceros (Extinct)
  3. Cave Bear (Extinct)
  4. Giant Dear (Extinct)
  5. Wild Boar.
  • Iron Age:

The Iron Age was a period in human history that started between 1200 B.C. and 600 B.C., depending on the region and followed the Stone Age and Bronze Age. During the Iron Age, people across much of Europe, Asia and parts of Africa began making tools and weapons from iron and steel.

The Iron Age wasn’t a single time that occurred simultaneously around the world. Instead, the Iron Age refers to when people in a particular location learned to use an iron for tools and weapons as well as when they started using iron more than other metals. Iron Age civilizations were still considered prehistoric because most of them didn’t keep detailed written records of their history. In most circumstances, these societies passed through three ages of technology, starting with the Stone Age, then the Bronze Age, and finally the Iron Age.

  • Middle Age:

The period saw major technological advances, including the adoption of gunpowder, the invention of vertical windmills, spectacles, mechanical clocks, and greatly improved water mills, building techniques (Gothic architecture, medieval castles), and agriculture in general (three-field crop rotation).

  3. Water and Wind Mills.
  4. Coffee House.
  5. Public Library.
  6. Flying Buttress
  • Industrial Age:

The Industrial Age is a period of history that encompasses the changes in economic and social organization that began around 1760 in Great Britain and later in other countries, characterized chiefly by the replacement of hand tools with power-driven machines such as the power loom and the steam engine.

  • Electronic Age:

The electronic age is also known as the information age or the digital age. It began around the 1970s and continued until the present day. This is a period of transition from traditional industry to an economy based on information computerization. The information age creates a knowledge-based society.
