About this book

This book is a collection of refereed invited papers on the history of computing in education from the 1970s to the mid-1990s presenting a social history of the introduction and early use of computers in schools. The 30 papers deal with the introduction of computer in schools in many countries around the world: Norway, South Africa, UK, Canada, Australia, USA, Finland, Chile, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Ireland, Israel and Poland. The authors are not professional historians but rather people who as teachers, students or researchers were involved in this history and they narrate their experiences from a personal perspective offering fascinating stories.

“If you are interested in the subject of the evolution of teaching about computing subjects in schools at all levels, and in all fields, this book is essential reading. … This book is a collection of personal recollections of experiences by its guest authors of what happened in their respective countries when the subject of teaching using computers was first broached.” (R. L. Glass, Computing Reviews, July, 2014)
