      What do you mean by that?


  3. Hayden at 9:44 am #

    An invention that makes my life easier is a laptop because I can just search for information on the internet instead of going to the library and finding the book or information that I need.

    Another invention that makes my life easier is a microwave because instead of heating up the oven I can just turn on the microwave and have my food heated conveniently.

    My mum une a lot her phones because she can contact and write with the driver, nannie and friends. Also she use it for google translate, shopping, reservations for hotels and looking for information on google.


    • Mr. Martin at 1:49 pm #

      Google Translate is a great tool, and I wonder what the future will bring for technology or devices that translate languages. Imagine how it would change our lives and travels. Regardless of technology, I still think it’s important to learn another language.

    One thing I use everyday is my phone because I like to listen to music, and I can communicate with people. One thing I use everyday at home is my fridge, it helps me store food and drinks.


  11. Shanmugam at 1:14 pm #

    Out of complete honesty, if I travelled back in time and I could bring an endless supply of things I use, those would be food and electricity . The reason I would bring electricity is not only to have practically endless entertainment, but also to auto-mate things so they do all that farmer work for me . And food, well that’s self explanatory !!!

    One invention I use everyday is computer/phone because I can learn things from computer/phone and we can also watch videos and finally we can communicate by using skype or e-mail.

    One invention I use in my house is water purification system because we are able to drink fresh and clean water. And by drinking fresh and clean water, we wouldn’t get any diseases related to dirty water.


    • Mr. Martin at 8:31 am #


      The water purification system is so important. There are not many places in the world anymore where you can turn on a faucet and drink water from it. So many people seem to drink bottled water. I remember drinking water from the middle of a lake on a canoe trip in Canada once. It was so fresh and clean. On other parts of the trip, we had to filter the water with a simple device to make sure it was clean.


  21. Owen at 1:24 pm #

    One invention the benefits me at home is a refrigerator because we can use it to keep food from becoming rotten.

    Another invention that benefits me everyday is my computer because I can use it to be organized and to learn things and to play games.

    1# Is my ipod because I use it to communicate with people.

  23. Akshaya at 1:27 pm #

    I would bring a water purifier to help purify the water and also I would bring my laptop since I can research and learn more about the history, My water purifier would help me keep healthy and not eat all the germs also my laptop could come handy any time.

  26. Sanjith at 8:47 am #

    My maid helps me with lots of things.


    • Mr. Martin at 9:21 am #

      Sanjith, She is not an invention. :>) How does she help you and what does she use (tools, devices, technology, etc.) to make your life better or easier? Think – cooking, cleaning, etc. What does she use?


  27. Amelie at 1:51 pm #

    Something helpful that I carry around with me everyday is my phone. This new invention is helpful because no matter where I go, if I get lost I can simply call my family and tell them where I am. My phone also tells me what time it is so I don’t run late to class. Because it is a mobile invention, I can literally carry it with me rather than having to go to a wire-connected phone booth to be in touch with people.

    Something helpful at home was the dishwasher we had in Switzerland. This was a super helpful time-saving invention as it meant we didn’t spend hours washing up. Instead of washing dishes to get allowance, I just had to load and unload the dishwasher. The dishwasher made everything cleaner than anyone in our family.


    • Mr. Martin at 8:21 pm #

      Thanks for the detailed response on why you chose these two inventions. I wish I had a dishwasher, although I actually find it relaxing to wash dishes by hand. I don’t know why, but I actually enjoy it.


  28. Gautham at 7:15 pm #

    One invention that makes my life easier is the flushing toilet because it removes stinky human waste out of the house and into the sewers. Another invention that makes life easier is this blog page, as I can do this homework out of class.


    • Mr. Martin at 8:20 pm #

      Waste removal was a critically important invention that also helps stop the spread of disease. I hope all the students find this blog page and our Moodle site helpful. Thanks!


  29. Arnav at 11:11 am #

    One invention that I use everyday is my phone because I can talk to people without seeing them in person.

    One thing that I use to make my life easier is a refrigerator because it keeps your food cold so it dosent rott.


  36. Annie at 11:20 am #

    I think phones are efficient invention because, First of all you could communicate with others faraway from you. Second,if you have a wifi connection you could surf the internet and watch videos or links.Lastly, you could download apps,such as games,selfie taking apps and much more. In conclusion,I think they are very useful invention for me.


  37. Annie at 11:22 am #

    I think refrigerators are also efficient invention at home because, First of all you could keep the food from going bad. Second, you could keep your food refreshing and chill. Lastly,you could keep food for a longtime by freezing them. (You could also make ice) In conclusion,I think they are very useful invention at home.


  38. C H R I S T I A N ;) at 11:23 am #

    What helps me to make life easier is money because if I have money, I can do lots of thing


  41. Ava at 11:29 am #

    A invention that makes life easier is the light bulb. Even though I do not carry this around, I still use it everyday to do my homework, to read and write. The light bulb was invented by Thomas Edison and is the most commonly used source of light in a house. Without the light bulb, we would have to use candles and kerosene lamps.

    Another invention is the airplane, invented by the Wright brothers. The airplane is the most commonly used form of transportation to jump continents. The airplane has had a progressive timeline. When it was created, the flying aircraft was made up of wood and was somewhat of a giant kite and became an aluminum alloy body and engines .

  43. Riley at 1:54 pm #

    Two inventions that help me in my daily life are my computer and the refrigerator. I benefit with my computer because it always has an answer to reasonable questions and some weird and wacky questions that I put in Google search, it also helps me in school with all the websites that our teachers tell us to use in class, for example moodle, the AISC homepage and many other websites that teachers tell us to use in class. I also use it for entertainment such as youtube and Netflix so when i’m at home I can watch shows. The refrigerator is one of the most important things in my house because it gives us food and drinks to help us survive, without it all of the food who have gone bad and we would starve to death.These and the inventions I can not live without.


  44. Florian at 1:54 pm #

    My favorite invention is the hot tub because it is really refreshing on a cold winters day. Although when you fill your hot tub with cold water it is also refreshing on a really hot day.


  45. Dhivya at 1:57 pm #

    I have a car. A car makes my life easier as it’s a transpirational device that travels on road and can carry a small amount of people. I go everywhere through my car.
