First Assignment of the 2015-16 School Year



With the AP government exam still two days away,  you might be surprised that I am even thinking of an opening day assignment for my government students.  But I always like to find something that will grab them and the two videos above should hopefully, along with the article below, do just that. The goal will be to tell them the power of government and how it will change during their lives to adapt to the new questions stemming from technology.

With the Apple Watch coming out soon, this WashPost article talks about measuring much of our daily activities and its impact on us.  For example Google is working on a device that can be swallowed and stays in the blood stream looking for problems.  Should it be regulated by the FDA?  Could Google sell the information to insurance companies?  Could you hide the information from a potential employer and so on?

The top (just the first three minutes) and bottom videos above shows the tremendous potential to both help us, but also to be better cataloged by technology companies - for better or worse.
