Technology Starters: Spreading the News follows the advancements that culminated in the communications achievement known as the Internet. Students in the elementary grades through intermediate levels can learn how each development helped to bring about the next. The real-time accessibility of communications in modern times can be taken for granted, and the program shows how this difficult feat became possible.
