The idea for this Collection came from Sadie, a fourth grade student at Explorer Elementary in Kentwood Public Schools. As a part of a school research project on innovations, Sadie gathered information and materials on the essential question: How have innovations changed the way humans record information?
Sadie wanted to study ancient writing like hieroglyphics, writing on paper and typing.
- How are these different forms of writing and recording information similar? How are they different?
- What do you think are the most influential innovations that have changed the ways humans record information?
