14 Tech Supplies That Made School Tolerable in the '90s
The clunky technology of the '90s paved the way for innovations in today's classrooms, and growing up in that time period was an adventure.
Children today would scratch their heads at a floppy disk. And who would know what to do with Microsoft Encarta when a quick Google search is so much easier?
New gadgets, trends and advancing technology have provided the education system with fancier tools, but we look back fondly at the learning resources of our past.

15 Technologies That Were Supposed To Change Education

15 Technologies That Were Supposed To Change Education Forever
Every generation has its shiny new technology that’s supposed to change education forever. In the 1920s it was radio books.
In the 1930s it was television lectures. Here in the second decade of the 21st century, it seems the Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) is the education tech of tomorrow.
Let’s hope it pans out better than previous attempts.
Today we take a look back at 15 technologies that were supposed to radically change the way that people are educated around the world. Some innovations were mostly hype. Others had an undeniably meaningful impact.

7 Scary Accurate Vintage Ads That Predicted the Future
We may not be riding hoverboards, employing robot maids or wearing one-piece space-suits, but that doesn't mean all predictions from the past about life in the future haven't come true.
We found seven videos that offer visions of the future that aren't too far off today's reality. From the foretelling of home computers to a 1970s prophecy of the Internet, these particular predictions from the past were spot-on.

14 Machines That Were Brilliant in 1985
The thing about science and technology is that what's cutting edge today is quickly replaced tomorrow. And that's a good thing — constantly pushing the envelope to build better, more brilliant machines will power us into the future. To celebrate the next chapter in General Electric's Brilliant Machines story, head back in time and see just how far we've come since 1985.

A Tale of Two Worlds: Old School, New School
INFOGRAPHICS
When was the last time you put your hands on a tape recorder? How about a slide projector or an overhead projector? Unless you’re stuck in some type of time warp, it’s probably been a while.
In this age of technology, which allows us to do just about everything on our smartphones or online — from online shopping to online learning — these tools may seem like they’re from eons ago. Yet, it’s our youngest generation who is, more than likely, all too familiar with them.
Take a look at how educational tools have evolved over the years.

The Evolution of the Web
Over time web technologies have evolved to give web developers the ability to create new generations of useful and immersive web experiences. Today's web is a result of the ongoing efforts of an open web community that helps define these web technologies, like HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL and ensure that they're supported in all web browsers.
The color bands in this visualization represent the interaction between web technologies and browsers, which brings to life the many powerful web apps that we use daily.

(Critical) history of ICT in education - and where we are heading?
The use of computers in education is much more a series of failure than success stories. I agree with Erik Duval that in general, on a large scale, the impact of technology on the way people learn has been minimal. In open distant learning and military training (simulations) there are examples of success, but these models do not fit very well into the school and university context.
So, I wouldn’t call them “good examples”.

History of technology listed at Wikipedia
The history of technology is the history of useful tools and techniques for doing practical things.
It is intimately related with the history of science, which includes how humans have acquired the background knowledge necessary to build useful things. Scientific endeavors have, especially in modern times, usually depended on specific technologies which assist humans to probe the nature of the universe in more detail than our natural senses allow.
