Investigations on Teaching with Microcomputers as an Aid

by Richard Millwood published Jul 25, 2015 10:35 AM, last modified Jul 25, 2015 10:31 AM
A collaboration between groups who take a research based approach to exploring the potential of microcomputers in education based principally at two institutions, The College of St. Mark and St. John, Plymouth and The Shell Centre for Mathematical Education, Nottingham University.

ITMA was founded in 1978 by Rosemary Fraser, building on some earlier work with microcomputers in schools. It grew to encompass people from a diverse range of backgrounds including teaching, teacher training, curriculum development, educational research, psychology, computer science, mathematics, physics, humanities, languages, music, engineering and publishing.

It benefited from funding from the Microelectronics Education Programme and published innovative software through Longman Group.
