Final Project: Mitigation Plan (submission date 09/04/18)

Overview

As part of this course, you will learn about the benefits, limitations, and risks that digital technology poses for its users. Digital technology is a growing part of many people’s lives and as a psychology professional and social change agent; you may be tasked with identifying methods to leverage technology to benefit the clients you will serve. The purpose of this Final Project is for you to apply your understanding of the risks and benefits of digital technology to a particular developmental age group and develop a mitigation plan with the goal of creating positive social change for this group.

Your Mitigation Plan consists of a particular issue that is either inherent to digital technology and/or could be addressed by digital technology. You will select a developmental age group and diversity factors (e.g., culture, gender, socioeconomic status) relevant to the issue you chose. This Mitigation Plan will include a discussion of the benefits and drawbacks of the digital technology being discussed as well as developing a variety of strategies to mitigate the issue.

Note:

1. Developmental age group: should be (School Age) say Elementary, Secondary & High School children)

2. Culture should be Africa, using Nigeria as a case study

3. Topic: Developmental disability limitations
