Paddle to the Sea - How Elementary School has changed

I'm lucky to be able to volunteer at my daughter's school each week. I'm helping with their computer lab unit - the main contribution being booting up 20 computers before school starts so we don't lose any time. My daughter also loves having me there - she's my helper so that's special too. To me it's amazing how much more technology the kids are exposed to, even in JK/SK. Of course to them this is simply normal - so there old man!

In my day (that just feels hilarious to type) I remember sitting on the library floor while my teacher set up a real 35mm projector because a long awaited movie had arrived. It had to be physically shipped around! No computer labs or LCD projectors for us! Those days were special treats.

Anyone else remember this National Film Board production? The scene where paddle slides down the snow slope at the beginning is permanently burned into my brain.
