This is a Prezi that covers the basics of technology for elementary school students. It explains what technology is, how we use it, and why it is important. It explains that technology is not simply stuff you plug into the wall. It is anything that man has created to make their life easier, safer, or more fun. It shows the progression of technology throughout time. It also asks students to search for technology in their classroom and in their own lives. It includes a video. Prezis can be used with any projectable screen. It does not have to be a touch screen. You will need internet connection to play the video, but the rest of the presentation can be used without it.
