The grade 4 students have explored changes in technology and some of the advancements made over time. Students chose a type of technology to investigate e.g. cameras, television, music, radio etc. They researched facts and looked at images of past and present technology. They then watched a Samsung commercial illustrating the company’s ideas for the future to help inspire their own vision for the future.
Some of the concepts they worked through included ……
- How the technology has made life easier and what it is used for.
- Some important dates and inventors or inventions related to the technology. How it evolved and improvements made over time.
- Predicting a future model of the chosen technology. Using the app ‘Adobe Draw’ students show their future design through digital drawing.
- Presenting the technology past, present and future in video format using text, images and audio.
Students then reflected on their learning, summarising their journey and discussed improvements or changes they would make.
STUDENTS PLEASE REFLECT ON THE FOLLOWING:
Plus – something positive about your final video creation or the making of it.
Minus- something you think didn’t work well.
Improvement – something you would improve either in the process of making your video, or the final product.
