Talk with my mother
I interviewed my mother to analyze if technology was necessary for her job and if so how important was it. From this conversation I gained that technology is huge in her line of work. She works for a non-profit organization named US Dream Academy which is located in Washington, D.C. She does a lot of administrative work which means she makes spreadsheets, enters data, takes attendance, etc. all on the computer. My mother said and I quote, "Without my computer, my job would extremely difficult, if not impossible to do." She's not too old and used a computer quite often when she was younger so it wasn't very difficult for her to utilize a computer at her workplace. The conversation that I had with my mother just reinforced in my mind that being able to use and comprehend technology is important for everyday life and at your workplace.
