Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Can You Hear Me Now? - Section 3: Hanging It Up!


Using the Jetson's to get students to appreciate how we can make our dreams into reality through science was so much fun! I loved how they reacted to the clip. When that video conference came up in the end, they just about fell off their chairs in disbelief. I am sure the 1960's is forever ago to them, but it made it all the better when I asked about what the phones of the 1960's were like. They quickly looked in their notes and then I think it all sunk in! If you can dream it, it can exist.
