    But one of the best parts of your story was when you saw your first computer. That had to be amazing! You told us that you were on a school field trip and that when you saw it, that it was huge, and that it kept on beeping, and blooping. Then when it printed out your name, you thought that was soooooo COOL ! I have always thought that technology was awesome! When I got my Ipod I was amazed at what it could do!

Computers, ipads, ipods, phones, and other technology are very helpful and fun. It was fun getting taught how to broadcast with partners.

  15. I really liked Michael’s story. It was probably the funnest living library so far, because we actually got to work with technology. Doing podcasts was pretty fun. I liked how he told us about how he was so interested in technology, even when he was a baby. I like taking things apart too, and then building them back together. I’m glad he came in to talk to our class and taught us how to use technology more through podcasting. I never knew how to podcast before, so thank you for teaching me!

    • My favorite part was,when you showed us about that thing on the computer. My second favorite part was when,you told us what you took apart and could not put it back together.
      Thankyou Mr.Haworth

  16. I enjoyed “The Wonderful World Of Technology” told by Michael Haworth for a few reasons. Firstly, I my favorite part of the story was when he talked about taking things apart. He said: “I took apart TV sets, VCR’s, and radios. Secondly, I enjoy working with technology too! I use my iPod and my Xbox a lot and I’ve learned how they work. Thirdly, I think Michael Haworth likes technology so much because he’s been around technology his whole life. He said when he was a baby he played with technology. Lastly, I won’t forget how important technology is to people’s economy.

  17. I like technology a lot! My favorite part of this story was when Michael saw the picture from the students around the world. Someone in Quebec sent a picture of a polar bear outside their window and another person sent a picture of sand dunes outside their house! I always use technology in my every day life with things like computers and TV. It is very cool to hear what technology used to be like, before I was even born! A computer would fill a whole room! I won’t forget how much can change in such a short amount of time!

  18. I personally really liked the story, “The Wonderful World Of Technology”! It was fun when he used the modem recording. It sort of sounded familiar, it was kind of annoying, but I still liked it! I usually use a lot of technology. I use my phone, iPod, computer, and others almost every day! I also sometimes like to take things apart. This one time I I took something apart and I ended up making light, I still don’t know how I did it though! I will jot forget this story, it was fun and a learning experience!

  19. Michael’s story is intriguing. Michael saw his first computer in 1975. He had a recording of a modem on his phone. It sounded like a radio with no reception. Michael used to be a teacher at Distants Ed school. He worked with kids around the world one in Dubai another in James Bay. The internet is more than it seems.

  20. I like technology a lot. Firstly, my favourite part of the story was the part where Mr. Haworth showed the sound on his phone. That sound was a beeping sound that I have heard before. Secondly, when he was telling his story I made a connection to my brother. Mr. Haworth said that he like taking things apart and my brother like to do that as well. Thirdly, I like technology a lot because they sometimes make me feel baffled. They make me feel baffled because I don’t use them a lot even though I like them a lot. Lastly, there is something that Mr. Haworth said that I won’t forget: don’t take things apart while they are still in a good working condition.

  21. I enjoyed three parts in Michale Haworths story. My favorite part in his book was when he played the bulletin board sound. Mr.Haworth ran a bulletin board that sounded that a fax machine. My connection to Mr.Haworth’s living book is me because I really like technology and same as Mr.Haworth. Mr.Haworth like to see what’s inside technology. He also like to take technology apart. I won’t forget that Mr.Haworth used a type writer in the olden days because there wasn’t any computer then.

  22. I liked this story. I like this story because it is interesting. It is interesting because it is all wires. My connection is that I know what the inside of a phone looks like. I know what an inside of a phone looks like because my mom’s phone got smashed. It’s all about technology is changing. Things that are changing are TV cell phones and computers.

  23. The wonderful world of technology. I like what he did to try to contact someone. IT was an amazing series of sounds. He explained he liked using technology to talk to people. I like using facebook to talk to people and play games. It was cool when he explained about the super computer. I wish I had a super computer. I was amazed what of what technology he used as a kid and growing.

  24. My favourite part is when micheal used his speical phone to macke that to call others on the conputer. I have a connetion from my dad if something break he takesit apart and fixs it and put back together. Micheal was talking about technology like iphones and ipods, ipads. i wont forget about technology.

  25. The wonderful world of technology. People like technology, iPhones, iPads, iPods…. Also, computers, they are important technology. I knew about technology. Technology means, science, skill, and there is an iPhone, iPad, iPod and computer. Computers are like type writers and we can do internet. I think technology is wonderful too.

  26. I liked the part when he showed us the modem. The modem sounded strange. I have a connection I also saw a cool computer in an antique shop. The antique shop was in Vancouver. I liked how interactive he was with the audience. I had to put my hand up three times. I also like computers a lot I LOVED YOUR STORY!!!

  27. The Wonderful world of technology

    Three things I liked was…I liked when I found out that you said you played with an electric kettle. My connection is I took a part a VCR at my friend’s house. One thing I liked was when you said you like to take hings a part like me to. I will always remember taking a part the VCR

  28. Michael Hawwords Living Book was absolutely incredible to listen to! Firstly, I have two favourite parts of Michael Haworlth’s Living Book. One of my favourite parts was when Michael told us about his favourite toy was a cattle. Another favourite part of mine was when he expressed his first time seeing technology in 1975 when he was in grade 1. Secondly, I had two connections while we listen to the Living Book. My brother works at Future Shop and he gets the latest updates like Michael has on his iPhone. Also, I like to take parts way from my brothers old technology. Lastly, Michael loves technology! Technology was not discovered back than, but they use to use type writers to type instead of a keyboard. Also, Michael would check his iPhone every once in a while to see the latest updates on technology. I learned that back than, they used type writers to type instead of computers and laptops.


  29. My faviourite part of the Living Book is when Micheal Haworth went to a field trip.And he seen a huge computer with a lot of flashing buttons.My connection was when I was a little kid and I played with type writer.And I liked the type writer.I enjoyed the part were Micheal Haworth showed us the dial noises.I liked how the dial noises sounded like.I felt cheerful to have another Living Book.

  30. My favourite part was when Michael Haworth started talking about technology. Cause I really love technology it’s amazing to learn about it because I find it interesting. My connection is when he asked if we have ever taken something a part. It reminds me when I use to brake toys because they were broken or I just hated the toy. The best part that I like about technology is. Computer and cell phones their my favourite technology right now. I learned that you needed a computer and a phone to contact other in different places.

  31. Michael Haworth loves technology and computers. In 1975 Michael Haworth loves for computer’s started he went to an oil company and saw a super computer he was excited and then the computer started making a crazy noise and then printed out Michael Haworth. Before the computers came out people used type writers. My connection is that I have used a type writer and it was difficult. In his, school when he was little they used type writers. His dad used to bring back gadgets from where he worked. Michael Haworth taught a grade six class and taught them how to use computers in Distence Ed school a girl from Jayme’s Bay Quebec sent a boy from doe by a picture of a polar bear outside her window and he sent her a picture of a sand dune. Michael Haworth had a thing called a bulletin board which let him talk to people around the world like a phone. I learned that there were computers in 1975 wow.

  32. Wow I really liked your story you taught me so much about technology. I loved the part when you told us about how you could phone people through your computer and hear each other. It’s so cool how you could take it apart and try to put it back together it must be so cool what it’s like. I loved it how you told us about that girl from Quebec and that boy from Dubai and how they communicated because of technology. Thank you so much for coming into are class and teaching us more about technology.
