Submission + - 1980's Computers in Education (techlearning.com)

xzvf writes: As someone that went to high school in the 80's, this newsletter from 1980 is a blast from the past. An interview with Microsoft talks up it's BASIC language product and predicts voice control of computers in five years. Advertisements for Compute magazine which is about to go monthly and an article about a computer "network" in Minnesota that connects some fax machine looking terminal to a central computer over telephone lines. Lots of Atari, TI and RadioShack news too.

Its a reminder from 30 years ago that we are still not using technology effectively in education.
