The History of Computing
We’ve had a cracking afternoon today! We started by looking at the history of computing, looking specifically at how technology and gaming have developed over the last 200 years. Games such as:
Space Invaders (1978)
Super Mario (1981)
Donkey Kong Country (1994)
Crash Bandicoot (1996)
We could clearly see how technology and gaming had changed dramatically, particularly in the past 30 years.
The children were then given cards which they were required to put in chronological order, showing the significant developments in technology. It was great seeing the children so engaged with this task and it definitely made me feel rather old!
