Technology Justice

...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.  Students consider their own needs and wants in relation to technologies, then those of others. In a top trumps style ratings game they explore how different technologies measure up in terms of technology justice
