Description

Course Description Icon

June 11 1949 - Alan Turing

“I do not see why it (the machine) should not enter any one of the fields normally covered by the human intellect, and eventually compete on equal terms. "

This historical period that began in the mid-20th century, characterized by a rapid shift from the traditional industry established by the Industrial Revolution to an economy primarily based upon information technology.  


 

Testing?

YES.  Just like most of our micro-lessons there will be a test after this lesson.

The entire class is 20 minutes long. 15 minutes will be devoted to material mixed with tests and games. The remaining 5 minutes for testing or retesting.

You will do great. Don't worry. You can always retest again if you aren't able to achieve 80% or better the first time around."


Target Audience

Now days, students as young as pre already know what a computer mouse is. We feel that this could be a fun subject for our 2nd graders and up.

A Summary

Minimum Grade Best for students 2nd grade and up
