Old Technology v New Technology

Let’s compare an old rotary phone (used in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s), with a current iPhone.

Children were asked several questions –

  • How does it work?
  • What is the dial for?
  • Can you show me how to call someone? (What is the first thing you do when you want to make a call?)
  • Can you send text messages on it?
  • What else can you do with a rotary phone?

Do you know?

For many of the children it was the first time they had seen such a phone in reality, so there were many different ideas and suggestions made.

When they compared what they knew about an iPhone however, here’s what they came up with.

Which phone would you prefer to have?
