Paper, Pencils, and... Thumbdrive? Essential classroom supplies from yesterday and today.

Version 8

    And a few years ago, no one would have guessed that a USB drive, or a smartphone camera was essential to the classroom. Some teachers however, use them to make a dull lesson shine. Be it a piece of today’s tech, or yesterday’s wisdom, what are the essential classroom supplies a new teacher might forget?
