Introduce your students to the evolution of technology with our engaging Technology Through Time Pack! This hands-on resource allows students to explore the leaps and bounds in information and communication technologies by comparing primitive and modern tools in a match-up game.
Students can gain an understanding of how far technology has advanced through a comparison match-up game of old and new information and communication technologies.
- 34 x Technology Match and Sort Cards
- 17-Slide PowerPoint Presentation
- 2 x Category Technology Labels
- Matching Technology Timeline Posters
- Suggested Teacher Answers
- Game Instructions
Teachers print the two category labels and stick them to a basket or bucket for sorting.
Students receive a card at random, each featuring either a primitive or a modern technology—like a pocket watch versus a smartwatch. Tasked with finding their technology counterpart, they then categorise their match as either hardware or software.
Following the game, teachers can utilise the included PowerPoint slides to spark classroom discussions by asking, “What is this technology’s purpose?” The slides serve to deepen understanding and facilitate meaningful conversations.
Note: This versatile game can be adapted to meet various learning outcomes. Whether you’re using it as a ‘snap’ game with matching primitive and modern technologies or as a memory game, the possibilities are endless.
Optimised for Digital Technologies or Technology Mandatory, this resource is a must-have for any tech-savvy educator!
