Presentation Transcript

  1. Objective:Analyze several trends that will impact upon the use of technology in the home and family.

  2. “AN AWARENESS OF TRENDS CAN HELP YOU BETTER PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE.” • SOME CHANGES FOLLOW A PATTERN OVER TIME. • TREND = A GENERAL DIRECTION OF CHANGE OVER A PERIOD OF TIME

  3. TRENDS:THE AGING POPULATION • For Americans born in 1900, the average life expectancy was just below 50 years. • For Americans born in 1998 the average life expectancy is 77 years.

  4. Universal Design • Accessible to or useable by all people, regardless of age, size, or physical ability, as much as possible. • Source: Mary Jo Peterson Inc. 4/2004 • “Aging In Place” • http://www.aarp.org/life/homedesign/ • http://www.aarp.org/life/homedesign/Articles/a2004-03-18-int_home_tours.html • Video - http://video.msn.com/video.aspx?mkt=en-US&brand=&vid=d1ceb6d9-0bcd-4060-9af7-16bb039a0cb6

  5. TREND:DECLINING FAMILY INCOME • IT TAKES 2 AVERAGE INCOMES TODAY TO PROVIDE FOR A SIMILAR LIFESTYLE THAT COST 1 AVERAGE INCOME 40 YEARS AGO. • www.prb.org

  6. TREND:BOOMERANG CHILDREN • Even though young adults today may prefer to live independently, they may not be able to afford to do so. • Many entry level jobs today offer low wages yet housing costs have soared, which has put independent living out of reach for many young adults. • (www.prb.org)

  7. TREND: BOOMERANG CHILDREN • Not only are they leaving home later, they are also more likely to return home - back into the role of a dependent. • Currently 40% of young adults BOOMERANG.

  8. TREND:AUTOMATED HOUSES • “Smart House” technology in whole or in part is a trend of the future.

  9. "The warming trend in global-mean surface temperature observations during the past 20 years is undoubtedly real and is substantially greater than the average rate of warming during the twentieth century.”The most important action we can take to slow global warming is:Reduce emissions of heat-trapping gases. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions can be done by: Increasing energy efficiency standards Encouraging the use of renewable energy sources (such as wind and solar power) Protecting and restoring forests, which serve as important storehouses of carbon FACT Therefore

  10. High Level of Consumption US: • 4.5 billion metric tons of materials consumed yearly. • World’s leading producer of garbage and industrial waste. • 50 % increase in efficiency to keep pace with population growth. • President’s Council on Sustainable Development, 1996 • U.S. 5% of population - 25% of global energy use.

  11. Consumption Per Person Canada US India World CO2 emissions tons/yr. 15.2 19.5 0.81 4.2 Vehicles/100 persons46 57 0.2 10 Paper use in kilograms/yr.247 317 2 44 Fossil energy in Gigajoules/yr250 287 5 56 Fresh water use in m3/yr/ind. 1,688 1,868 612 644 Purchasing power in U.S. $ $19,320 $22,130 $1,153 $800 4.3 5.1 0.4 1.8 • Wackernagel & Rees, 1996

  12. Trend – Natural Resources are becoming more scarce and therefore more expensive • Car, homes, and technology in general will need to be more energy efficient and environmentally friendly

  13. Objective –Identify ways to conserve energy that apply to home design Begin to read pg 695 in Skills for Living and list words that have an unknown meaning to you. Example #1. a break – See notes for State Standards

  22. Check out an Energy Star House Room by RoomInteractive Website http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=products.es_at_home

  23. Prove You Got It! • Design a home that will address the needs resulting from your selected trends. Include interior and exterior details that clearly show your how your home plan will help a family deal with • Aging through Universal Design • Declining family income • Home automation • Rising costs and decreasing amounts of natural resources • Resources – paper, markers, rulers, computers, class time, multiple intelligences of members, Mrs. D. IF you decide to work as a team, each person must design a separate room of the home. • Directions – Describe with words and pictures what the overall house would look like. Include information on the exterior features, # of rooms, # of floors, etc. Describe with pictures and words one of the rooms in your house. • Grade will be based on following directions, creativity and neatness, use of resources, including time, and quality of answers to the following questions. • Complete the following questions. Turn in this sheet and all designs parts by _____________

  24. Continued • My home and room design include the following universal design features: • My home and room are designed to be cost efficient in the following ways: • My home and room design use the following home automation features: • My home and room is designed to reduce energy consumption in the following ways: • I used the following resources from the web or print (minimum of 5) • (do not just say Google.com): • Each person (if you are in a partnership) must submit at least one illustrated room AND the answers to these questions.
