I’ve been meaning to share an awful lot of the resources I put together earlier in the year, but this is the first opportunity I’ve had to get it done… I’ll be posting classroom posters & level descriptors tonight, starting with my famous faces in tech wall display. I’ve uploaded them as jpeg files to avoid the nasty compression that seems to come with PDFs on my computer, regardless of how I tinker with the settings; they’re A3-sized, with all of the ones post-1950s in colour. It’s been pointed out by a few people that there aren’t enough women in the timeline – if any of you know of some famous female computer scientists, let me know, but it’s been a man’s industry up until recently!
Famous faces in tech
Download the entire collection as a .zip file (83mb).
Firstly, love the site.
Secondly, these posters are ace. The kids love them (Grace Hopper is their favourite). My Year 12’s made 4 more in the same style – Designers of Tetris, Space Invaders, Pac-man and Mario. Email me if you woud like a zipped file.
Best wishes, Frank
Thanks, Frank – glad you like the site. I’ll email shortly – would love to see what your students came up with 🙂
