Changes in technology are beneficial in almost all aspects of our lives. However, many unanticipated/undesirable consequences of technology exist. Some consequences are immediate, while others may not be known for decades. Current university students grew-up with technology and cannot imagine a world without it. They not only use technology, they are the future technology developers. By providing both examples and classroom exercises, this paper intends to create an awareness of the unanticipated/undesirable consequences of technology that can be incorporated into the classroom. These consequences impact both individuals and society as a whole and the concerns need to be addressed with students. Faculty should not be naysayers but should assist the students in drawing their own conclusions.
