A teacher in 1975 would have used what technology to create handouts for his or her students?
A) Ditto duplicator.
B) Laser printer.
C) Copy machine.
D) Scan converter.
I want to say C but would like a second opinion.
We didn't have copy machines yet! It's D.
Although schools may have had copy machines in 1975, if I remember correctly, we were still producing multiple copies on the ditto duplicator machine. Copy machines and ink were much too expensive then to use for student handouts.
You old timers -- do you remember the smell of a freshly run ditto with purple ink? <g>
Oh, you bet! And I also remember mimeograph machines whose masters were absolutely unforgiving!
Our school didn't have any copy machines until about 1980 or so ... and then ONE machine for about 70 teachers and all the others on the staff!
