February 28th 1973

“Fantastic amount of homework dun. 10pps of history, fiziks, eco, geog etc. etc…”

This must be me showing off to myself.

I really can’t remember doing homework at all to be honest.

Despite which how DID we research things in the seventies and write on subjects without the aid of the internet?

Maybe I have just got set in my ways since I first bought a computer (and search engines were invented) but I can’t believe we used to have to read a whole crapload of books, take in what these books were trying to tell us, and then have to interpret the findings in our own words. Cut and pasting must be a lot easier, even if kids have to then dicker with the results to make them “their own”
