Learning Technologies

Allen and Seaman (2010) state that with the abundance of learning technologies, faculty members feel at an advantage as they are able to use these technologies in their instruction and reflect on their teaching practices. However, the availability of these technologies does not guarantee the efficient and appropriate use. Therefore,…

THE EFFECTS OF TECHNOLOGY ON MANUAL JOBS – CHAPTER I

1.1 Introduction Back in the 1950s, concerns had been raised about the implications that “automation’ has on the manual workers and this led to a thorough evaluation of probable impacts of diffusion of the electronic computers as well as other changes. In order to explore effects of these advanced technologies…

THE EFFECTS OF TECHNOLOGY ON MANUAL JOBS – INTRODUCTION

Various industrial robots possess increased flexibility with regards to the orientation and positioning of an object that is being operated on or the overall tasks which are being performed. Often, the industrial robots utilize precise guidance; most entail machine vision systems related to the powerful controllers or computers. The artificial…

INTRODUCTION TO THE EFFECTS OF TECHNOLOGY ON MANUAL JOBS

Nonetheless, the current workforce composition has changed immensely because of the expectations and urgency which accompany the robotic technologies. By the 1970s to 1980s when the manufacturing began to change from Japan to USA, Japan had employed almost ten times more robots which was equal to the USA count; but…

Manufacturing Sector is Expected to Lose more Workers

Interestingly, the technological advancements have been predicted to reduce the jobs that are centered in the information sector whereby almost 65,000 workers will lose their jobs in the next decade. Despite the fact at technology has revolutionized most businesses, it is done through transforming the operations rather than increasing the…

Tendency for High Automation Rates

It should be noted that even if the activity could become automated it does not necessarily mean that it can be because broader economic aspects are considered. The occupations of the auditing clerks, accountants, and bookkeepers, for instance, need training and skills; this makes them scarcer than the basic cooks.…

Future of Automation Study

Considering the automation’s technical potential cannot be dimmed as enough to investigate how much of this can take place in specific activities. The exact level would reflect interplay of technical potential, the costs and benefits, social and regulatory factors linked with acceptability and supply-and-demand labor dynamics. Automation can transform the…

Historical Background of Impacts of Technology on Manual Jobs

One of the first technologically advanced countries was the United States; this was due to the availability of land as well as literate labor, the restige of the entrepreneurship and access to a literate and upscale free market. Furthermore, its legal system promoted the establishment of guaranteed contracts and business…

Introduction of Robotics in Factories

A robot can be described as a virtual or mechanical artificial agent that is commanded by the electronic circuitry or computer program which makes it a kind of embedded system. The robots could be semi or fully autonomous as well as vary from the humanoids like Advanced Step in Innovative…
