According to Practical Action, ‘Technology Justice’ is “the global right to access sustainable technologies”. Should everyone be able to have technologies that enable them to live a decent life? Is it important that these technologies don’t harm others, now or in the future? These questions and more are explored in this engaging set of resources for students aged 9-19:
- Technology – needs and wants
Through a series of interactive activities, students consider their own needs and wants in relation to technologies, then those of others.
- Technology justice – what does it mean?
Through a series of a interactive activities, pupils unpick what Practical Action mean by technology justice, including developing a game that can be played like “top trumps”.
