Part of Lesson Plan: Now You See It, Now You Don't: Video Cards and Monitors
Activity Overview / Details
Show the video on how to replace a video card.
Before or after video, review safety procedures with students, stressing the importance of unplugging the computer before doing any work on the inside of a computer. Also, if you have a safety strap to demonstrate in class, that is very helpful. Pass it around to students for them to touch.
I share with students personal stories of safety problems I have encountered or heard about. One of them may have a story they want to share. Its always good to remind them about safety whenever you have a chance.
