In what seems like a previous life, I was once a highschool English & history teacher, who later ended up teaching every computer-related course there was … and somehow ended up here. So it pleases me when I get to see my love of history and my love of technology combined.
A Computer Geek’s History of the Internet is a great resource I would see myself using in the highschool classroom. The resource points to some good links, and while the sequence is not totally complete in my mind (where’s blogging?), it certainly recollects key events.
Additionally, I see this as a natural wiki project. I would love to see my students, year after year, construct and collect historical perspectives related to the “progress” of technological development. Now, that could be an amazing resource ….
