dc.description.abstractPeople of the 21st century are becoming more knowledgeable of how to operate modern-day technology. Whether it is at their place of employment or in the comforts of their home, various technological devices are used daily throughout the world. As the majority of the world becomes increasingly technologically advanced, schools have begun to adapt to the changing world. School districts are incorporating various technological devices into their classrooms to aide in the education of our students. This curriculum project proposes the concept adopting a social studies unit that is exclusively technological. Leading up to the proposed curriculum based on the classical civilizations of the ancient world, readers are exposed to the numerous reasons for implementing a solely technological classroom. Some examples as to why an educator should adopt this concept include increased levels of student engagement, student preparedness for their futures in education and the workplace, as well as an overall better comprehension of the content presented to them. The results of the students' work from this curriculum will be beneficial for future unit scoping and sequencing, as well as the overall cognitive growth of students. [from author's abstract]en_US
