Final Project: Intro to Computers

You may begin your final project today.  Read on for details:

Technology: Past, Present and Future

Your mission is to research an example of modern technology and present your findings in a well-crafted PowerPoint.

First off, don’t think of technology as something that has a screen and a keyboard. A hammer and a smartphone are both good examples of technology.

At the bottom of this assignment is a list of technologies or activities that use a form of technology. Choose a topic from this list or develop a topic of your own.

Your PowerPoint should address the following points:

-describe the technology and how it works.
-what is the need for this technology?
-how was this technology invented OR what did it replace and why?
-how is the technology used TODAY?
-how will this technology change in 10 or more years?
-what is your interest in this technology?

Your PowerPoint should be at least eight slides. Each slide should include images and text.  All information should be written in your own words-copying and pasting (plagiarism) will result in zero for this assigment.  Include a list of websites used in your research on one of your slides.
