    You could look at mechanical computers, perhaps combine with the DT to make some?

    A really interesting idea - but I think I may have left it a bit late to organise making some in DT
  3. I hope it's nice weather otherwise you're gonna have some dark classrooms...

    Give them the scenario "When the computers/internet/phone network/etc. crashed". Talk about EMP pulses or something and get them to discuss the ramifications.
  4. Do a task that you have previously done on a PC eg "you know we made that PPT ...." and get them to compare and contrast how IT has changed a simple task.
    How much easier/harder it is etc
    Or design something using story boards.
    Take a video camera out and report on how the lack of IT and electricty has impacted on the day

    Brilliant ideas! Thanks so much. I fear I am feeling very unimaginative because its such a daft idea.
  11. What an incredibly, mind-numbingly stupid waste of a day.
