Richard Millwood has produced a thorough history of the developments of hardware from the teletype to the smartphone and of software from punched card input to LOGO to cloud computing. Graphic displays, office productivity tools, interactive multimedia and social networking are considered in the context of the educational imperatives of the time and the development of communication and creativity among learners in each decade since the 1970s. The article looks at the implications of the way that technologies and pedagogies have interacted in the past to focus ideas for the educational technology of the future.

Inproceedings Reference Caught in the Web: Traditions, Cultures & Spidermen
ULTRALAB is a learning technology research centre researching & developing learning software and producing CD-ROM products.  Recently the team has become interested in publishing through the Internet using the indexing and retrieval software, Gopher and the hypermedia system World Wide Web using Mosaic software.  These products and the software protocols underlying them present new design challenges, new opportunities for international publishing and a realisation of the hypertext dream.  Nevertheless there are constraints to be identified and criticisms to make.  This paper discusses these issues and some of the work ULTRALAB has developed in tackling them.

Article Reference What is the modelling curriculum?
This paper describes the benefits which might accrue from modelling as an activity for learners. Some approaches taken to teach modelling are discussed and criticised. The learners' purpose modelling is suggested to be critical in engaging them in this formal and theoretic field and it is suggested that presentation and communication of ideas in the context of project work may be appropriate. An analysis of parts of the modelling process is presented to highlight some of the hidden steps which appropriate modelling software may usefully expose. Finally some prototype software developed by the Integrated Modelling Project to explore these problems is described.
