About this book

This work derives from a conference discussing the history of computing in education. This conference is the first of hopefully a series of conferences that will take place within the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and hence, we describe it as the First Conference on the History of Computing in Education (HCE1). These proceedings represent a collection of works presented at the HCE1 Conference held in association with the IFIP 2004 World Computer Congress held in Toulouse, France. Contributions to this volume range from a wide variety of educational perspectives and represent activities from four continents. The HCE1 conference represents a joint effort of the IFIP Working Group 9.7 on the History of Computing and the IFIP Technical Committee 3 on Education. The HCE1 Conference brings to light a broad spectrum of issues and spans fourcontinents. It illustrates topics in computing education as they occurred in the “early days” of computing whose ramifications or overtones remain with us today. Indeed, many of the early challenges remain part of our educational tapestry; most likely, many will evolve into future challenges. Therefore, this work provides additional value to the reader as it will reflect in part the future development of computing in education to stimulate new ideas and models in educational development.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"History of Computing in Education-captures the essence of the historical panorama presented at the conference. … A book such as this accomplishes two essential tasks: (1) it encapsulates major developments in the field of ICT … and (2) it leaves a record for future scholars, historians, and reforms, to study and act upon. … For teacher trainers and other human computer interaction experts, History of Computing in Education provides necessary background information from which one could initiate deep, meaningful, and worthy dialogue." (Rahul Kumar, Education and Information Technologies, Vol. 13, 2008)
