What is the Tomorrow Project?

The Tomorrow Project is an initiative by Intel, that encourages people to imagine the role of technology in the future and the effect it has on their lives. Through a series of FREE online videos and short science fiction stories, Intel provides tools that classroom teachers can use with their students to explore the real world implications and future uses of technology. The goal of The Tomorrow Project is to encourage people to use their imagination to consider and create ways to solve problems and improve the quality of their lives.

In addition, it can be a challenge to devise activities related to responsible digital citizenship and the role of technology that are engaging to teenagers. However, The Tomorrow Project is something that will spark student interest. You can use the content on the Tomorrow Project website to jump start a discussion, inspire a creative writing topic, or generate an idea for a video production project.
