U.K. schools getting rid of analog clocks because teens "cannot tell time"－英國學校撤下有指針的類比時鐘，因為青少年學子「看不懂時間」
Schools in the United Kingdom are removing old-school clocks because students cannot read them, the Telegraph reports.
According to a head teachers’ union, educators are now installing digital devices after students taking exams complained they were struggling to read the correct time on an analog clock.
"The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations," Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders, told The Telegraph. "They are used to seeing a digital representation of time on their phone, on their computer."
Stephanie Keenan, head of English at a high school in London, said that her school has installed digital clocks in the exam hall after agreeing that many year nine, ten and eleven students cannot tell the time with an analog clock.
British teachers are sharing their experiences on social media.
"We discovered this a few years ago when some couldn’t read the exam room clock," Cheryl Quine wrote on Twitter.
