Option 3: Exploring past and present technologies: Share a lesson idea that involves exploring past and present technologies. You might prepare a resource, a lesson plan or some online content that accompanies your lesson. Share your idea with the community. If you are a teacher trainer, you might consider an idea for a professional development session.
This lesson idea requires some background knowledge, so prior to this lesson students will learn about the different types of technologies (mobile phones, television, computer, Gameboy, fridge), this could be taught through images, in a PowerPoint, etc. The next thing students will need to know is the difference between old and new technologies, they could possibly decide this by judging the appearance of said technological device.
The lesson activity idea will require students to use several flashcards that represent a range of technological devices through images. The idea is to place the flashcards in a timeline, representing the oldest technology to the newest. The next part of this activity could be a reflection, where students justify why they have placed their flashcards where they did.
