File The Legacy of the BBC Micro Effecting Change in the UK's Cultures of Computing by Tilly Blyth — last modified Nov 18, 2020 12:52 AM
This report, sponsored by NESTA and the Science Museum and written by Tilly Blyth, was published in May 2012. The BBC MIcro was conceived by the BBC Computer Literacy Project (CLP), which had the grand ambition to change the culture of computing in Britain’s homes. The project received significant high-level support within the BBC and across government. This innovative backing by a broadcaster working with an entrepreneurial company - Acorn - led to the creation of an open technology, supported by a range of materials (programmes, courses, publications and software) delivered across a multitude of channels. The BBC Micro was complemented by activities that increased demand for computing generally, by promoting cultural shifts in attitudes towards computing and delivering learning into homes and schools.
