Welcome to the handtechclass wiki!

This is a space where we can collaborate and share information and projects from our classroom. We now have a chance to be creative and begin exploring technology beyond the walls of our classroom. There will be students from other classes participating on our wiki so we will see many different views and contributions which will make our wiki even better.

Our First Project

For our first project we will begin creating a wiki about technology. Technology reaches beyond the computer and into other ways we can improve the world. We will explore different areas where technology has changed the world and the way we live. Think about it, how has technology changed the way we live, eat, travel, communicate, learn and even play? How has it affected our health? How has technology changed over the years? What will technology be like in the future?
