Description

Technology is often defined by what we consider "new." This activity asks you to list the new inventions you have seen in your lifetime.

BIG HISTORY PROJECT / LESSON 1.2 TECHNOLOGICAL COMPLEXITY IN YOUR LIFETIME Change has been a characteristic of human life from the beginning. While the pace of change may have been slower thousands of years ago, change and innovation have always been evident in human societies. Sometimes change can be subtle and it may take time for people to realize it’s happening. Later in the course, for example, you will study the Industrial Revolution. People living during this “revolution” didn’t talk about the dramatic changes in how they lived and worked until about 50 years after the revolution started. In contrast, changes in technology have been rapid in the last 50 years, particularly since the time you were born. It’s very unlikely that anyone who has lived through the last 20 years would argue that technology is changing very slowly. With your partner, brainstorm a list of all the technology that’s been invented since you were born. When you’ve finished, your teacher will create a master list of all the technologies that the different groups came up with. Does the fact that all these technologies have been invented in the last 15 years surprise you? Do you think that the pace of change and the complexity of technology will remain the same, taper off, or increase? Why?
