Lesson Idea
Students will create a one-page outline for the foundation of a memo that predicts what classroom
technology will be like in 75 years. Students will utilize the multi-level list function to organize their
outlines and will include multiple details for each paragraph. Student products include the following:

Grade
Standards
W.6.5
With some guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by
planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.
ISTE Standard
6. Technology Operations and Concepts
Students demonstrate a sound understanding of technology concepts, systems, and operations.
a. Understand and use technology systems
b. Select and use applications effectively and productively
c. Troubleshoot systems and applications
d. Transfer current knowledge to learning of new technologies
Objective
Write a one-page outline as a baseline for a story that predicts what classroom technology will be like in
75 years.
Problem Statement
The U.S. Office of Science and Technology is searching for researchers to aid them in a long-term
planning project. They require researchers to provide them with information on what the next 75 years
will bring to the landscape of education. They have asked for a one-page memo which outlines
technologys role in the classroom in the future. Your job is to create an outline in MS Word using
multilevel lists, which will guide your paper as you write it.
Assessment
Students success will be graded on proper grammar and spelling, correct usage of the multilevel list,
and proper length of assignment (one full page, double-spaced). Three levels of quality will be below
proficiency, proficient, and advanced.
