Episode 2: What is technology?

What is technology delves into the things we consider to be technology - and the things we don't. In this episode, Michelle speaks with Owen Chapman, a Professor in Communications about his understanding of technology through his recent research on disability and mobility studies. We also take a trip to the Adaptive Design Association in New York to speak about their work making custom, functional and unique adaptations for disabled children - like chairs, stools and desks, mainly out cardboard!
