Advanced Micro-computer Techniques for Secondary Schools

I taught about machine code and high resolution graphics on the Research Machines and BBC computers for this Department of Education and Science funded regional course organised by Bob Lewis, my former director in Computers in the Curriculum but now moved to St Martin's College Lancaster.

Such was the interest that there was a follow up extra course in May 1983 and a repeat of the same course in September 1983.

I was proud of the overhead slides which I designed and made for presentation on the overhead projector. They provided a kit for progressively overlaying slides which were specific to the Z-80 and 6502 processors on a common base of key features of all microprocessors.

Reflection: My intent was that the clarity of display and the contrast between two examples would help learners to see a clear conceptual model of the central processing unit for and thus support their construction of a mental model as a basis for further understanding of hardware, machine code and assembly language programming.

Lewis Carroll describes a fictional map that had:

"the scale of a mile to the mile."

A character notes some practical difficulties with such a map and states that:

"we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well."
— Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, Lewis Carroll, 1893
