Believes Tablets Should Be Stone

| Learning | January 28, 2015

(I’m on a field trip, at a ski resort. Since the school is based online, I can do tests on the web. While eating lunch, I have my tablet out, and am working on a midterm. A parent comes up and watches for a bit.)

Parent: “Hey, is that [School Site]?”

Me: “Uhm, yeah. Working on psychology right now.”

Parent: “…on a tablet?”

Me: “Yeah, they’ve made it mobile-friendly. They also have a program to get a tablet, if you have the grades for it.”

Parent: “That’s weird. We didn’t have all this when I was younger. They should keep everything traditional.”

(I didn’t know how to reply. She walked away, grumbling about ‘new customs.’)
