Several schools in my area have done away with text books altogether and have issued students iPads, instead. Because I am a dinosaur, I find it very Jetson-esque. Here’s my question — what kind of technology did you use in school?
In elementary school, we had a couple of Apple IIEs, on which we played Lemonade Stand and Oregon Trail while waiting for the bus. That’s all we used them for, as far as I can remember.
In high school, we had PCs with big ole floppy disk drives. My senior year, I was editor of the yearbook and I produced the yearbook on a beloved Mac+. It was the first year the book was produced by doing the layouts on the computer rather than on big pieces of paper. Innovative, eh?
So tell me — where was technology when you were in school?
