Throughout this assignment you should keep the following questions in mind: How did computer devices change over time? What were some of the most significant computer inventions and why? How will we use computers in the future? What might the computers or devices of the future be able to do?

2. Creating a timeline illustrating how some discoveries and innovations lead to others.
3. Thinking about and discussing the most important developments-- those with the greatest impact on how we live today.
