Pierre, Chris and I worked valiantly together in both taking apart and putting together the very fundamental piece of technology that is a computer, being hands on is a great way to learn due to it being a more confronting way of teaching where the students cant help them selves but ask about what the pieces they just took out are and how they are used in every day technology.
Day 1 questions
1. Your initial thoughts…?
I think that this is a great hands on experience that teaches students who cant help but be sucked into the fun which is rather interesting.
2. My learning hats.
The Green hat and Black hat.
3. How did you work together?
To be completely honest we have hardly worked together as we are just skimming the surface towards something so much bigger, teamwork is miniature at this point.
4. What did you notice the most?
What I noticed the most is the rather useless and obnoxious CPU fan, in which prevents us from continuing on with our progression.
5. What parts did we remove?
We removed the side panel some screws and the RAM that’s all for now.
(Random Access Memory)
(Power Supply Unit
(Central Processing Unit)
Day 2 questions
1. What is the computer architect?
The computer architect is the set of rules and methods that describe the functionality of the computer system.
2. What is meant by technological independence?
To be free of restrictions and to have absolute control over the system which is not possible as you need all the parts to function the computer properly.
3. What were your challengers today?
My group and I did not encounter any challenges on this specific day.
What are the new ideas?
That the world will become a jobless place for humans as machinery and robots will do all the work for us instead.
What are the alternatives?
That we minimize production of robots and machinery to keep humans working and doing there jobs for longer.
What are the solutions?
That we slow down production of new technology because we are moving at an exponential rate.
What ideas can be invented or created?
New types of drones and machinery that could prove useful to human kind.
Is it true or false?
its true that technology is advancing for good.
Does it fit with the facts, plans or what I believed in?
yes it does fit in with the facts and is exactly what i believed in.
Will it work?
yes it would because technology has almost already reached this point.
What are the weaknesses, dangers or problems?
Machinery and technology fails to detect or experience human emotions meaning there would always be that ethical situation where a computer or machine cannot go through there command without thinking about the after affects.
Thank you for helping
Thank you Steven rafter for this great experience.
