Basic tech knowledge makes it easier to function in a knowledge economy based on science-intensive industries, innovation, and growth.

TechQuiz.org released a series of quizzes (http://www.techquiz.org/) for students, educators, and the tech curious. The quizzes test visitors’ tech knowledge and cover a wide range of topics, from social media and internet marketing, to computer technologies, science, and innovations.
Developed by the web design and content development team at TechQuiz.org, the new quizzes are the result of 3 months of research and intense work. They build on the idea that being technologically aware, competent, and literate are skills that are worth mastering.
“The knowledge economy and globalization contribute to a fast pace of medical, scientific, and technological advance and major changes in every aspect of life. Basic tech knowledge makes it easier to function in a knowledge economy based on science-intensive industries, innovation, and growth,” said John Williams, marketing consultant at TechQuiz.org.
The new series of tech quizzes cover topics such as blood groups, planets, airplanes, soils and plants, famous inventors and a lot more. Basic knowledge of scientific and technological advances and the world around us, makes us better equipped to face unique challenges in a knowledge-based economy. What is more, there are many tech myths that show up and can be easily disproved by those who have mastered the basics. Common myths surrounding technology tell us that batteries must be drained before charging, password-protected wireless connections are safe, magnets erase data, and so on. Some campfire stories and myths seem plausible, but they can cost a lot of money. For example, most antivirus programs, paid or free, are good at detecting malware, spyware, and viruses. And contrary to popular opinion, expensive HDMI cables are as good as standard ones. Basic knowledge makes it easier to tell the difference between tech facts and urban legends. The new quizzes by TechQuiz.org enable visitors to build on their knowledge, recognize common myths, and learn concepts that make them technologically and digitally smart.
TechQuiz.org is a website offering tech, science, computer, and other quizzes.
