Vintage education technology. At Time4Learning , we appreciate the history of educational technology & enjoy viewing previous "revolutions" in educational technology. We live at the cutting edge of technology-mediated education and live amidst slide projectors, mimeograph machines, and even an old slate. Did you use these technologies, were they revolutionary? PS. I'm looking for a teacher gradebook typical until around the turn of the century, have one?

See and Spell
This clever educational device certainly predates Vocab- SpellingCity- .com. I haven't found a date on it but I'm guessing its post WWII, perhaps the 50s.
You get to spin the wheel and in each of the three windows, you can see a little picture. There are maybe ten rows, three each. The pictures are of baby, toy, dog, cat, boy, girl, bone etc
You look at the word, then you try to spell the word.
Finally you open the window to see how you did. Pretty exciting, huh?
One more thing: Thanks to Cady for the See and Spell.
