Inside Mr. Duane Garrett’s class at the Conyers Middle School Center for Technology Education, students are buzzing about the history of television. Mr. Garrett encourages students to bring and use their own devices to collaborate on and create presentations on a variety of topics. Students are given the freedom to select from digital tools that fit their learning styles and interests.
Our History of Broadcasting project tracked the progress of broadcast technology starting with newspapers in the 1700s and ending with our current technology. I have another project coming, “The Future of Broadcasting”, where the students will have to research new and emerging technologies and create a similar presentation.
Take a look at some of the these outstanding student projects below.
