Re: [midatlanticretro] Re: VCF speakers - Project Delta or Plato
David Ahl was a very big proponent of computer education during the 70's
That's one of the reasons why we had a minicomputer at my high school back then.
We had everything from clanking ASR's, DECWriters to Hazeltines too.

Evan/All, In the 70's and maybe 80's there was a University of Delaware project called "Project Delta" which involved DEC equipement and kids using computers, etc. They called it CIE (computers in education). They were also big proponents of the Plato system. Does anyone know of a person locally involved with these projects? Plato was a cool mini-computer driven education tool that I remember using as a kid, it would be great if there were still some of those systems available or a person to talk about them. Early touch screen technology, and so on. Bill
