Information Age gallery: an introduction for teachers

This video will help you prepare for a visit to the Information Age gallery at the Science Museum, London.

The Information Age gallery

This gallery tells the story of the Information Age over the last two hundred years. Once, you could only send a message as far as the eye could see, or as fast as a horse could gallop. But now the planet is criss-crossed by cables and surrounded by satellites. You can talk to anyone, at any time, search the internet and stay in touch. This video will help you prepare for your visit and show you things to look out for and discuss.

To see the gallery for yourself, plan a visit to the Science Museum.
