Do you ever wonder what is inside of something? Wonder how it works?
You know the type - we cannot stand it until we know what is inside. So we have to open it up and investigate (and secretly happy when something breaks). I wondered what is inside of a computer - big surprize. I haven't cracked one open since the Apple IIe's. With some guidance (my professor and computerhope.com) we took one apart to keep in my classroom.
Now what? What ARE these pieces anyway? What do they do? We just wonder. Please help us learn and join in the the conversations.
I loaded computer parts pictures onto voicethread.com
for an example of how computer parts work and how voicethread works. We need some brief explanations, or even questions you wonder about too.
Please join us and help get this started.
