Transcript of Technology in Education
-Teachers Conference, 1703 “Students today depend upon paper too much. They don’t know how to write on slate without getting chalk dust all over themselves. They can’t clean a slate properly. What will they do when they run out of paper?
-Principal’s_Association, 1815 “Students depend too much on ink. They don’t
know how to use a pen knife to sharpen a pencil.
Pen and ink will never replace the pencil.”
-National Association of Teachers, 1907 “Students today depend upon store bought ink.
They don’t know how to make their own. When
they run out they will be unable to write words or
ciphers until their next trip to the settlement. This
is a sad commentary on modern education.
-The Rural Teacher, 1929 “Students today depend upon these expensive
fountain pins. They can no longer write with a
straight pen and nib (not to mention sharpening
their own quills). We parents must not allow them
to wallow in such luxury to the detriment of
learning how to cope in the real business world,
which is not so extravagant.”
-PTA Gazette, 1941 "Ball point pens will be the ruin of education in our
country. Students use these devices and then
throw them away. The virtues of thrift and frugality
are being discarded. Business and banks will never
allow such expensive luxuries.”
The Federal Teacher, 1950 “Students today depend too much on handheld calculators.”
-Anonymous, 1985 "With these laptops student won't be able to write in their HSC exams. Their hands will get too tired and their spelling will be abysmal. "
New England English Teacher 2010 The only thing that is one to one that we should be concerned with is equitable access to rigorous, relevant, and irresistible learning experiences that reflect and harness the times, environment, and ultimate goals of the learning.

Teaching & Learning in the
new information landscape… The times, “..they are a changing,” exceedingly beyond the imagination of the prophet, Bob Dylan, when he wrote the song almost fifty years ago. The environment we are preparing our children for and preparing them within is one of challenges. It is also an environment of opportunities. Another characteristic of our environment is an emerging new information environment, where information and communication are networked, digital, and abundant. And our goal is to give our children a good start on the next 50, 70, or 100 years of their lives.
