In this webquest students will learn the history of computers.  Students will create a collaborative poster using Easel.ly - that teaches other students about this history of a particular topic and how it influences computers to this day. 

Digital computers have been around since the 1940's; however only in the last 25 years have computers become a part of our everyday lives. What will the next 25 years bring?
