Looking for ideas? Middle School Computer Lessons

Steve jobs was a true genius, the only person that comes to mind when comparing him to anyone is Edison. This week I led a class discussion about the man and his legacy. At first, my students seemed annoyed with the prospect of not going right into the project of the day, but after simply asking “who has an iPod?” they were hooked.

It is hard to imagine where the world would be without his inspiration. In class, we viewed a story from CNN about his life. To my surprise, my students ages 11-15 were glued to the story, and really great discussions followed in all my classes.

Where will the future of technology go now? Where could it have gone if he had another 10 years??? What is the next iPod? iPad? Now?
