The integration of technology studies with humanities and social science studies improves critical thinking, creativity, logic and innovation.
Studying humanities and social sciences improves critical thinking, creativity, logic and innovation. When we integrate technology studies with humanities and social sciences (such as English, history, philosophy, anthropology, and writing) across the curriculum, we help students bring to life and retain what they learn. This could take the shape of separate technology and humanities courses being synchronized in some linked fashion, or it could take the shape of humanities or social science material being delivered within selected technology courses.
