To reflect on the impact of various technologies on human abilities, competencies, and expertise, psychologists in a wide range of specialties and from a wide range of countries bring historical, comparative, sociocultural, cognitive, educational, industrial and organizational, and human factor perspectives. Among the issues they address are the cognitive impact of complex technologies and of the transfer of technologies, how to design technologies that foster intellectual growth, and how technology mediates the impact of cultural variables on human intellectual functioning.
