Facebook Generation in Museums

How will the next generation, the one after the Facebook generation, write notes? Will they pull out their iPhone 8 to type it in or will they actually know what a pen is? Will the generation after that have relics of different pens and pencils? Will the generation after that have iPhone 4s next to old computer monitors in their museums? Will they even have museums? Will cursive and print end up in the history books next to hieroglyphics? Will journals and notepads be extinct like the dinosaurs? Will only English Majors have hardcover or paperback books? Will we, the Facebook generation, be in museums as relics like our own great- grandparents are for the Great Depression and World War II? Are we the last ones to take notes and the first one to be addicted to technology?
