  1. 1. Technology and Education
  2. 2. “ 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 Business world, which is not so extravagant.” -PTA Gazette, 1941
  3. 3. “ 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
  4. 4. “ 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
  5. 5. “ Students today depend too much on hand-held calculators.” -Anonymous, 1985
  6. 6. Today we still use pens, pencils and calculators. Now we have computers which make our lives even easier and I’m sure that no matter what changes happen in the future someone will complain about it.
