  • There are a few videos used within the presentation, all are present on YouTube. I was planning to use Slideshare's new feature to include them in the presentation. However, it looks like you can't have both a slidecast and include YouTube videos.

  • The audio was recorded using my iPhone and the HT Professional Recorder app ( This was a bit of a test to see how it worked. I didn't record any of the other sessions because I forgot to start the recording. Not sure if I will get the time to synch the audio with the slides.

  8. 8. Students today can’t prepare bark to calculate their problems. They depend on their slates which are more expensive. What will they do when the slate is dropped and it breaks? They will be unable to write!
  9. 9. Teacher’s Conference 1703
  10. 10. Students today depend on paper too much. They don’t know how to write on a 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?
  11. 11. Principal's Association 1815
  12. 12. Students today depend too much upon ink. They don’t know how to use a pen knife to sharpen a pencil. Pen and ink will never replace the pencil.
  13. 13. National Association of Teachers - 1907
  14. 14. Students today depend upon store bought ink. They don’t know how to make their own. When they run out of ink they will be unable to write words or ciphers until their next trip to the settlement. This is a sad commentary on modern education.
  15. 15. The Rural American Teacher - 1928
  16. 16. Students today depend on these expensive fountain pens. They can no longer write with a straight pen and nib. 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.
  17. 17. PTA Gazette - 1941
  18. 18. Ballpoint pens will be the ruin of education in our country. Students use these devices and then throw them away. The American values of thrift and frugality are being discarded. Business and banks will never allow such expensive luxuries.
