The Australian Educational Computer That Never Was
Jan.-March 2013 (vol. 35 no. 1)
pp. 35-47
Arthur Tatnall, Victoria University, Australia
Computers are now commonly used in Australian schools, as in most developed countries. In the early 1980s, a multitude of incompatible microcomputers sought to enter the education market, presenting a significant problem in terms of technical support and teacher professional development. To address this, Australia investigated designing and building its own educational computer. This article tells the story of how Australia's educational computer was designed but never actually built.
