This is our last lesson on the last process in the preliminary course! (Tomorrow and next week will be spent doing practice papers for your exam on Friday.) 
  1. Summarise the criteria involved in creating or selecting software that is suitable for young children.
  2. The following tasks relate to the issues surrounding the past and future trends of displaying technology.
    • Describe the kinds of displaying technology built into Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine (you should be able to identify at least four).
    • Watch the video Made of Glass 2 (yes, this is the second video - there is a previous video) and describe some of the potential future applications for new kinds of display technology (including others such as rollable displays, holograms, or others that you discover).
