Impact and Implications of Technological Change on Individuals and Industry.
Jackson, Lorraine M.
American society is moving from an industrial age to an electronic, information age, and during the next decade both individuals and industry will have to cope with this transition. Effectiveness in dealing with the impact of technology will depend upon the ability of individuals to address four issues: (1) preparing for increased work productivity; (2) coping with anger in a computerized world; (3) understanding classes of human error; and (4) identifying electronic myths. (Methods for addressing each of these issues are briefly discussed. A bibliography for technological literacy and adjustment is appended.) (BL)
