History of Computers

Al Rogers is one of the earliest pioneers in the use of computers in teaching. When he got started... in the days of the IMSAI and Altair (and here) (1975-1976)... the only way to obtain a computer was to assemble one from scratch... including soldering IC sockets, capacitors, resistors, and I/O plugs to a blank S-100 mother board. His first classroom computer video monitor was a bare CRT housed in a cardboard box with a window cut in one side.
