Description

In this lesson, from the New York Times Learning Network, students consider how xerographic photocopy machines and scanners operate. They then discuss and practice using scanners, and brainstorm strategies to increase the efficiency of Google's scanning project. For homework, they either customize an excerpt from a language arts text scanned in class or write a letter to Google with their recommendations.
