Students can now take the front row seat in their own AR/VR classroom, to examine how technology has changed the farming industry over the course of the century.
Over centuries, the growth of agriculture contributed to the rise of civilizations. Before agriculture became widespread, people spent most of their lives searching for food—hunting wild animals and gathering wild plants. About 11,500 years ago, people gradually learned how to grow cereal and root crops, and settled down to a life based on farming. Today, agricultural methods often vary widely around the world, depending on climate, terrain, traditions, and available technology. Focusing on the changes in technology used in agriculture, the lesson takes a look at what technological advances affect agriculture today. Students can now examine how farming techniques changed due to mechanization, describe different basic farming methods used in different parts of the world,c explain why some growing practices are used in some areas but not in others, and grow food using different growing methods.
