My background with computers.

In 1967 I wrote a term paper for a Sociology course and I
predicted teaching machines in the classroom. My professor
gave me a very hard time about that as he thought I wanted teachers
replaced by machines. I wanted those students deficient in
skill to be able to improve and with those advanced students these
machines would not hold them back. In 1968 I took a computer
programming class (using punch cards!) I learned M.A.D. (Michigan
Algorithmic Decoder). In the early 1980's I bought an Apple IIe
computer and I was on
the Internet. In those days there were message boards that I
contributed to. I first began using computers in the classroom in the late
1980's.

One way we used the Internet in the
Library...(1998)

A math class was in my library doing a cooperative learning
lesson on fractions and percentages using M & M packages. The
students wanted to know why the packages were not uniform in
quantity. Cybrary Man immediately had the students email
M&M/Mars. That same day they got the following answer with the
average mix of colors in percentages: “Because of the difference in
the sizes of the individual candy, the number of pieces per package
varies. However, the package should be the indicated weight.”
