The story "The Fun They Had" by Isaac Asimov is about the year 2157 when every child has his own machine teacher and schools like today do not exist anymore. Asimov wrote this story in 1951 for a syndicated newspaper page. Later "The Fun They Had" was published in "Fantasy and Science Fiction" magazine. 
In the year 2157, the thirteen-year-old Tommy finds an old book. He and Margie, who is eleven, find it strange that the words on paper do not move after having been read. Nowadays they only read stories on the computer screen. The book is about school centuries ago. Margie is very surprised that in the past pupils had a person as a teacher and that all children of the same age learnt the same thing and went to a schoolhouse with other children. Margie wants to read more of the book but first, she has to learn with her machine teacher whose level is too advanced for her and she thinks the school in those days was much better than today.

They both was very excited to read that real book . Margie told tommy that her grandfather told her that there was a time when all the stories were printed on a paper . The book was quite different from the future e books because - 1. The pages of the book were yellow and wrinkled . 2. The words of the book were not disappearing even on turning the pages. But tommy considered this book as waste because he thought that once it has been studied then it is of no use .on the other hand there e books can contain a millions of books and is good for more books too.

Hey mate!

Answer:

"The Fun They Had" is a futuristic and fictional story written by Isaac Asimov. The story is set in 2157, 17th march where Tommy, a thirteen year old boy, finds a real book. The words stood still on the yellow & cranky pages and it was strange for the two kids as the words did not move the way they did on screen.

This book was found by Tommy on the attic of the house, it was about schools and Margie hated schools because they had mechanical teacher, which was black and had a large black screen on which the lessons were shown. Also the students had to write their answers in a punch code and insert their test papers in the slot of the mechanical teacher. Their schools were in their home itself. The mechanical teacher used to teach at regular hours.

Both the kids later when reading the book, get to know that in the school's of earlier times, a human teacher used to teach students in a special kind of building in groups and gave them homework. All the students came together from the neighborhood and gathered laughing and playing in the schoolyard. They learned the same things and at the end of the day, they would go home together laughing joyously.

The story ends comparing the futuristic schools (story) and the schools of (present) todays generation. Margie and Tommy feel that the schools of todays generation are much more fun than the futuristic schools and they wondered how a human teacher could teach! They were thinking about the Fun they had !

Hope it helps you!

The Fun They Had
The story was written in 1951 by Isaac Asimov, famous for writing science fiction. The story is set in the year 2157, more than 200 years later than it was written. Hence, most of the story is a result of the author's imagination- his vision of a system of education that he thought would exist in the future. The two main human characters in the story are Tommy, a 13-year-old boy and Margie, his 11-year-old friend, who live in the year 2157. The story begins when Tommy is very excited about finding a book made out of paper. He immediately went to show it off to Margie who had never seen a paper book herself, and did not even know that such things existed. Tommy found it at home at a place where they stored old useless things. The book was probably about 200 years old and now had brittle yellow pages. The book contained information about schools that existed at that time. This account also caused a lot of excitement among the children because it was the kind of school they have never experienced themselves.

Books of 1951: Made of paper Words written on them These words were static, they did not move Once, the reader finished reading the book, he would keep it aside. These are the kind of books we are used to today


Books of 2157: These are e-books or tele-books The typed words appear on the screen and the reader must scroll up/down to read them i.e. the words moved Once the book was read on the screen, a new book appeared there These are the kind of e-books/ kindle edition books that are coming into vogue these days

Schools of 1951: A building specially constructed for the purpose of imparting education to children All the children of the locality went to the same school, at the same time and probably travelled by the same bus Each school had several classrooms. In each classroom, all children of the same age would sit and learn the same lesson together.They would be taught each subject by one particular teacher, a man, who would teach the same lesson to all the children in the class in the same way The children would talk about their lesson, discuss homework and thus, learning became enjoyable The school operated within particular working hours


Schools of 2157: It was not a specially designated building. The school would be in the home of the student (a separate room would, perhaps, be assigned for school related activities) There would be a computer which would function as the teacher. It would be programmed to teach lessons of every subject according to the student's age. If the level of lessons was too easy/ difficult it could be re-programmed by a special technician called the County Inspector. The computer would teach lessons, give homework, assign tests etc. Students had to type their answers into the computer through a punch code they had to learn (Just like students today have to learn the alphabets) Since, there was no other student in the school, nor even a human teacher, students missed human interaction in the classroom. Hence, many of them hated the concept of school. According to them, the students of the 20" century had more fun.

Author's message: No matter how technologically advanced the human race becomes; nothing would be able to replace the dynamic, vibrant relationship that one human being has with another. Human beings are social creatures and crave the company of other humans. That is what makes life worthwhile.

Summary of The Fun they had-
The Fun They Had throws light on an interesting aspect of the technological world we will have in the future. Consequently, it is set in the future where two children discuss the way things functioned in the earlier days. Further, they talk about the ‘books’ which comprise of paper instead of the telebooks they have now. It is rather interesting to read about the conversation between the little kids. They get fascinated by the concept of ‘school’ which prevailed in the days of their grandparents. Moreover, they also talk about how those days were much more fun. The Fun They Had does show us the reality of technology taking over in the near future.

The Fun They Had’ by Isaac Asimov is science fiction. It tells the story of two young children named Tommy and Margie who live in the year 2157, where children get an education through computers at their home. One day they come through a printed book and learn something about the school that existed hundreds and hundreds of years ago. It is a matter of great surprise for them because they are living in the age of moving e-texts.

The Fun They Had Summary of the Lesson

It is the year 2157. Margie makes a diary entry which reveals that Tommy has come across a book printed on paper. The pages of the book have turned yellow and wrinkled which proves that it existed centuries ago. The book is peculiar in the sense that it had the same words on it that it had when they read it the first time. They were not moving like that on a computer/television screen.

Tommy calls it waste because once the book is read it is of no use. Their television screen has had a million books on it and one cannot throw it away. Margie is of the same opinion but she is curious to know what the book is about. Tommy tells her that it is about school. She hated school, but now she hated it more than ever because her mechanical teacher had been giving her test after test in geography and she had been doing worse and worse. Her mother sends for the County Inspector who is a round little man.

He takes the television teacher apart and sets it right within an hour which only increases Margie’s disappointment. He tells her mother that it was not Margie’s fault but the geography sector of the mechanical teacher was geared a little too quick and he has slowed that to an average ten-year level. He assures Margie and her mother that there will be no problem henceforth.

Margie is curious to know about the school that existed in the past. Tommy tells her that it is not their kind of school. That is the old kind of school that they had centuries ago. The students had a human teacher who taught them and gave them homework and also asked them questions. Margie argues that a man cannot be smart enough.

Tommy further tells her that the teachers didn’t live in the house. They had a special building and all the kids went there. The kids of the same age learned the same thing. Now it is Margie’s school time. She goes into the schoolroom which is right next to her bedroom and the mechanical teacher is on and waiting for her. She puts her homework in the slot with a sigh.

She is still thinking about the old schools they had when her grandfather’s grandfather was a little boy. All the kids from the whole neighborhood came, laughing and shouting in the schoolyard, sitting together in the schoolroom, going home together at the end of the day. Those schools were far better than the schools of today because they offered great fun to the students.

The story "The Fun They Had" by Isaac Asimov is about the year 2157 when every child has his own machine teacher and schools like today do not exist anymore. Asimov wrote this story in 1951 for a syndicated newspaper page. Later "The Fun They Had" was published in "Fantasy and Science Fiction" magazine.?
In the year 2157, the thirteen-year-old Tommy finds an old book. He and Margie, who is eleven, find it strange that the words on paper do not move after having been read. Nowadays they only read stories on the computer screen. The book is about school centuries ago. Margie is very surprised that in the past pupils had a person as a teacher and that all children of the same age learnt the same thing and went to a schoolhouse with other children. Margie wants to read more of the book but first she has to learn with her machine teacher whose level is too advanced for her and she thinks the school in those days was much better than today.
