Modes of communication

For Inquiry this term Room 9 are learning about how we keep connected with people throughout the world using different modes of communication.
This week we brainstormed all of the different types of communication we knew and then ranked them in order from what we thought was the oldest to the newest.

We want to find out if we are right so we have developed some questions that we think will help us confirm our answers.

We would really like as many people to answer these questions as possible. Please leave a comment with your answers along with your name and your age (if you don't mind!)

Can you please make your responses really specific so it helps us with our inquiry.

1) How old were you when you sent your first letter?

2) When was the first time you emailed?

3) What was your favourite way of communicating when you were 10 years old?

4) How did you normally communicate from the ages of 16-18?

5) How old were you when the cell phone was invented in 19?? ?

6) What was your first type of communication other than face to face?

7) Did you use a spring back telephone?

8) Were messages in bottles “in fashion” when you younger?

9) Have you ever used or known someone to use pigeon to send a message?

10) Did you ever have a penpal?
