This powerpoint is intended to activate students' prior knowledge and spark conversations about technology and how it has changed the way people work. It consists of photographs from long ago and present day and opportunities for students to share their thinking with partners.
Teachers have flexibility in deciding appropriate pacing for students, but will probably want to use the powerpoint as a series of lessons over several days.
A free student response sheet, "Technology and Work Show What You Know", is available for download (from Ahead of the Game) and can be used as scaffolded note-taking guides or as an assessment.
