GUIDED LEARNING ACTIVITIES
Complete an ITGS Triangle Film Analysis based on Code 2600 or WarGames as directed on the ITGS Triangle Film Analysis Template. Save as 1.2B Your Last Name. Submit via Edmodo (1.2B).

CODE 2600 documents the rise of the Information Technology Age as told through the events and people who helped build and manipulate it. The film explores the impact this new connectivity has on our ability to remain human while maintaining our personal privacy and security.

As we struggle to comprehend the wide-spanning socio-technical fallout caused by data collection and social networks, our modern culture is caught in an undercurrent of cyber-attacks, identity theft and privacy invasion. Both enlightening and disturbing, CODE 2600 is a provocative wake-up call for a society caught in the grips of a global technology takeover.
