CAL 2011 conference special feature

The National Archive of Educational Computing presented a stand at this international conference and organised a workshop.

 At the conference, Charles Crook re-discovered an article on the BBC Domesday Project National Disc which he had not seen since he submitted it to the BBC in 1985!

This remarkable article predicts Facebook, the 'C' in ICT and many other wise and prescient concepts around children and microcomputers. You can read our transcribed text of the article, or a reconstruction as a PDF of its original form as it appeared on the Domesday equipment.
