TECHTALK FOR TEACHERS: HIGH-TECH TOILETS IN JAPAN
Japan is a world capital for high-tech devices and the birthplace of a lot of automation, or technology which can execute tasks without human intervention.
Even toilets in Japan are full of technology and they can do things automatically like lifting seats, flushing, warming seats, blowing warm air and cleaning the toilet bowl after it is used.
About TechTalk for Teachers
TechTalk for teachers is an online course which provides primary school teachers with examples of technology (video, article or photo) and suggested questions to discuss with students ages eight to 12. Technology examples are taken from a variety of field, including health, transportation, agriculture, the environment, retail, entertainment, manufacturing, sports and consumer goods.
A new TechTalk for Teachers topic will be posted every week during the 2018-2019 school year (September 2018 - July 2019).
Teachers are invited to make TechTalk for Teachers a regular feature in their classrooms and share feedback from their class discussions with their peers on Share to Teach. Let's encourage students to think critically about technology!
