Your students are on the front lines of a technological revolution. Whether you show them this infographic directly or simply use it as inspiration, here are a few great topics to consider for discussions, debates and essays:
Additionally, you could use this infographic as a great opportunity to discuss a history of computers (thanks again, Mr. Turing!).
