About this tool
The Technology Impact Cycle Tool helps you to estimate the impact of (new) technology! For designers, problem solvers, policy makers, journalists, parents & all other people.
Free online courses
We created ten free one hour crash courses that inspire you to think about the impact of technology. The courses are fun and designed to interest, inform and dazzle you! To make you think!
The tool offers three different scans and is really easy to use. Still, if you want to read the f* manual, we have one for you.
You can use the tool any way you want, however we made a selection of best practices. For designers, teachers and critics.
We have developed a method, the Technology Impact Cycle, that you can use in combination with the tool.
The Technology Impact Cycle Tool is a Fontys University production. The tool was created with students, professors, companies and teachers. It is and will forever be a work in progress. Therefore we would love to hear what you think. Do you have remarks, improvements, things we can do better? Do you want to have a conversation with us? Ask us questions, invite us for a presentation?
