Some seniors say school is not like it used to be. A group of seniors are stepping out of their normal routine and walking into an environment they aren't familiar with - a 21st Century classroom.
"If we needed something in the encyclopedia, you'd go to it and it would be gone and another student may be using it, so everyone has the technology or the access right at their own hand to learn it," LaVonne Schmidt said.
Around 20 silver-haired learners had the chance to step into the classroom and find out how students and teachers use technology every single day.
The older learners agree things are a lot different now then they were back then.
"Back when I went to school, it was kind of hard spelling words sometimes where they can misspell a word and they can punch it up and the word will come up correctly which is a lot easier," Eli Schmidt said.
When asked if this technology helps or hinders learning, the older folks say they are pleasantly surprised at what they see.
"I am very envious of the technology these kids have and how well they can move around on the computer," LaVonne Schmidt said.
They did have some concerns; they’d like to see the students using encyclopedias and dictionaries. The school reassured them that those skills aren’t loss in the tech-savy classrooms.
