VIDEO: Student Brings Typewriter to Class

Man, and I thought my 2006 Macbook was old. A student was recently seen (and recorded) taking notes in lecture…on a typewriter. Fellow students giggled as the clicking and clacking competed with the professor’s voice, so much that the professor confronted the student using the dated machine.

 

It’s likely that the student was just joking when bringing the typewriter into class, or it could just be that he couldn’t afford a laptop. Either way, an excellent point can be made:

And while it may be comical to see a typewriter in a modern-day classroom, YouTube user hyosyd makes a valid point: “50 years from now someone will do a prank about bringing a laptop into their lecture.”
