Oral History Team

Introduction


Much of the history to be presented in HCLE exists nowhere but in the memories of people still living. That's why we need to be interviewing educational technology pioneers and those who learned for, with or about computing during our target decades - 1960 to 1990. Many key contributors have died in the past few years but we don't want to miss the opportunity to meet face-to-face with those who are still among us and bring you their in-depth stories. The Oral History Team will do this important work.
