The Story of Electronics
Anne and Charlie
I appreciate this collection, and I really enoyed coming at the use of technology from another angle. Your collection has lots of great insights that we need to pay attention to.
I wanted to share something, too, and add to the conversation.
The Story of Stuff, and its offshoots that include The Story of Electronics, is something worth mentioning. The video takes a view of our consumable mentality and how that impacts our planet. The Story of Electronics hones in on the production of technology devices, and the "designed for the dump" mentality that has us "upgrading" every year or so, and tossing away the outmoded models of our devices.
The series has also come under fire for its use of political-left rhetoric that targets big business. As such, it provides a great way into discussions in the classroom about the topic (technology and the environment) and the use of persuasion in a video setting.
