1 Increase Knowledge
Using Google Slides, create a presentation on the history of computers. Choose ONE decade (1940s-2010s) and use all events from each year in the chosen decade to create a slide show presentation.
The students will use multiple technology resources to complete this project. The students will use:
• www.computerhistory.org/timeline to gather their information: Choose ONE decade (1940s-2010s) and use all events from each year in the chosen decade to create a slide show presentation. (making sure to source site)
• Transfer that information to a Google Slides presentation:
Make a title page to mark the beginning of each year, then make individual slides breaking down the event(s) in a given year (some years may have multiple events).
• Submit their work to the Google Classroom page: Log into Google Classroom, click on the class page, click on assignment, turn in Google Slides file.
• Present a computer timeline decade before the class: Student will be called up to present before the class.
