Our rapidly developing world has lead to unprecedented evolutions in technology. Technology tells a continuous narrative of innovation, disruption, collaboration, risk and resilience. Through this collection students explore the essential questions: What makes something innovative? How do you define innovation?
To help unpack these questions have students explore each object by answering:
- Who is this object made for?
- How is it used?
- What did this object allow people to do?
- What connections do you notice between the objects?
- Was this technology innovative for its time? Why/Why not?
This collection was inspired by the Bob Greenberg Selects exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum: https://collection.cooperhewitt.org/exhibitions/1108968917/page1Read More »
