Having just been asked by the alumni officer at Future First to give a talk at my old school to current students, I started to think about how things have changed since I attended – literally in the last century.
I couldn’t type my homework topic into a search engine.
I couldn’t use an interactive whiteboard.
I couldn’t text my mum to let her know I had been ‘kept behind’ – okay I’d got detention.
I couldn’t check the menu in advance to avoid the luncheon meat fritters ad infinitum.
I couldn’t cite my Human Rights when I decided it was too cold to go outside for games lessons.
Now I have to think of something entertaining to present to the current crop. Just hope they behave better than my cohort when we had a fossil thrust upon us. Happy days.
