Why they will hate it: Although this was considered high tech in the '70s after the fixed blackboards of the 1960s it had three faults; You had to concentrate on the blackboard in case the lesson rolled round and you missed what was going on. It needed chalk which was usually missing due to being thrown at unruly pupils, You had to copy down relevant information as it was written down during the lesson.
What they want instead: Any device which can receive the lesson from the smart screen over WiFi.

Why they will hate it: After taking a photo you have to take the film photo out of the camera, put the developing image under your armpit if the weather is cold and wait a couple of minutes for the film to develop. Then if the photo is not good enough you need to retake thephoto. Upload any decent photographs to a paper photo album. Affix with glue, sticky tape or plastic photo corners that will only last for a couple of years before they fall off.
What they want instead: A smartphone. Or a tablet. Or a digital compact camera. Or anything digital that can upload to Facebook within seconds.
