Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and the Rise of the Personal Computer Webquest uses a great website that allows students to get a better understanding of the importance of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates in the creation of practical personal computers. The rise of Apple, Microsoft, the ups and downs of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are covered in this webquest. This webquest does a great job in covering the rapid changes of computer technology during the 1970s-1990s. The webquest is great for students in grades 7-12. Click on the link to visit the website:
