Technology Project: Find a New Technology Gadget

Last week in English Conversation with 5th Grade we presented our Technology Projects. The students worked in groups to find a new technology gadget that was released in 2017 or 2018 and they researched it.

Among the gadgets chosen were a talking robot nanny, a smart bed and an underwater drone.
