Listening Technology Over Time Teaser

Listening Technology over Time

Experience Listening Technology Over Time as an asynchronous program for students to explore at any time. Similar to our live program, students learn about how listening technology evolved from the 1900s to today by examining different devices, like the gramophone, the boombox, and the iPad, and listen to music popular during the era of each device. Students are challenged to think critically through observation, comparing and contrasting, and evaluating how and why these technologies have changed over time. This version of Listening Technology Over Time features a 30-minute video divided into two video segments: Part I: 1900s-1970s (17 minutes) and Part II: 1980s-2010s (13 minutes).
