Cameras: old and new

Subject area: Digital technology

Year level: Upper primary

Question: What are the differences between the cameras of the past and those of the present?

This question stimulates students to think not only about the physical characteristics of the cameras (weight, mobile, etc) but also allows a platform to discuss the factors affecting the quality of digital images (pixels, resolution).

Some websites to look at:

The Evolution of Cameras

Fascinating History Of Cameras Since The First Camera

Art integration: Students create a timeline of the evolution of cameras and search for appropriate images that highlight the difference in quality. Alternatively, they can use their knowledge to manipulate pixels and resolutions to create photos of different qualities.
