exponential growth
Exponential Growth
  • Changes coming faster and faster
  • Ideas combined and change increases

Ex. If you were given one penny on your birthday and the amount doubled every day by the third day you would have four cents.

activity
Activity
  • With a partner figure out how much you would have at the end of one month if you were given one penny and it doubled every day.
  • Answer: Over $5 million or $5,368,709.12 to be exact.
technology s rate of change
Technology’s Rate of Change
  • Moore’s Law
    • The observation made in 1965 by Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel, that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits had doubled every year since the integrated circuit was invented.
    • Moore predicted that this trend would continue for the foreseeable future. In subsequent years, the pace slowed down a bit, but data density has doubled approximately every 18 months.
round table
Round Table
  • Discuss in round table the impact Moore’s Law has on us today.
  • Be ready to share.
activities
Activities
  • Optional small group activity: Technology Then, Now and Future worksheet.
  • Using the Venn diagram handout, select one tool of the past and compare it to a tool of the present used for a similar task. Write a paragraph explaining how this technology has increased our capacity.
    • Ex: Hand sewing / Sewing Machine
