Computer Geniuses Through History

Teacher Page


This web quest is meant to serve as a small unit on Computer History included in a 7th grade Computer Skills class.  I believe that this web quest could be used in a Science class, English Language Arts class, or a Social Studies class.  I plan to follow up this unit with a unit about the Human Brain.  In the human brain unit, we talk about learning styles, right-brain versus left-brain and how the teenage brain differs from the adult brain.  This leads quite nicely into a discussion about artificial intelligence.  


Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources.

Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including vocabulary specific to domains related to history/social studies.


Most of the inspiration for this web quest came from the Computer History Museum webpage: http://www.computerhistory.org/education/educators/#downloads, especially the materials provided for Educators.
