With this infographic, give your students a blast from the past with the history and lifespan of storage media. Now, people are able to store everything online via “the cloud,” but this was not always the case. Throughout history, there have been different innovations in storage media that had different levels of reliability, and were different sizes.
Try to get examples of each of the different types and ask students if they know what each were called and if they have ever seen them. Compare the sizes of each, and the reliability of them. Study the development of them, and share with students your own experiences with them. Hopefully your students will feel lucky to have the almighty cloud.
