It helps to know one's roots and to have a greater appreciation of today's technology, and it also promotes interest in how things used to be before the days of the smartphone. This poster gives a (very) brief overview on the history of the NeXTCube, the computer that Tim Berners-Lee famously used to kickstart the World Wide Web, alongside some photos and a high-resolution illustration of the device itself.

The images are in .jpg format and are set in print-ready CMYK colour. Colours in preview images may differ due to differences between RGB and CMYK colour spaces.

Inventions of the Industrial Revolution - Research & Newspaper Project in Canva

This unit connects learning with technology to Social Studies. This is perfect for technology class or for use in a Social Studies or History classroom that wants to incorporate technology with a lesson. No download is required to use Canva (www.canva.com) - a free product, making it easy for teachers who are not able to download software on classroom computers to still give their students a choice in learning. In this lesson, students are provided with a quick tutorial, as well as links to other resources to help them with their project. The tutorial is intended to help students get started with the program and then use the resources within the program to refine their creations. Students create a newspaper/newsletter about a topic of interest related to the Industrial Revolution from a provided list after researching the topic. They use that information along with graphics, pictures and backgrounds from the Internet and also supplied in Canva, to create a finished presentation that explains their topic, and add their own opinions and insights to the project. This is an excellent creative project to add to a unit on the Industrial Revolution. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with upper elementary or high school students. Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher & Student Notes and Resources • Student Project Expectations and Grading Rubric • Quick Start Tutorial for Canva
