Gallery of Communications

This is a matching game where learners match examples of communications technologies with pictures of the people who used them. Look at images of hieroglyphs, runes and calligraphy and match them to illustrations of ancient people, or look at pictures of modern sound recordings, choreography notation and emoticons and match them to modern people. Explore some of the ways that people have communicated throughout history, and learn how these technologies have changed our world.
