History of School Slates

    In the nineteenth century, slates were used worldwide in almost every school and were a central part of the slate industry. At the dawn of the twentieth century, slates were the main tool in the classroom for students.

    However, writing on slates has not become obsolete. These are still used in the 21st century as a learning tool for children and adults. They also serve as unique pieces for decorative purposes and various other uses.
