    I didn't find any significant information online. But I can tell you my experience as a teacher in a rural Michigan school system.

    1980 -- All teachers had access to slide projectors, vcrs, movie projectors, and overhead projectors.
    -- A few Commodore 64 computers were installed in the library for a little programming instruction.

    1990 -- More sophisticated computers were installed in the school buildings. Many classrooms had one computer -- mostly used for educational games.
    In computer labs classes of students learned word processing and other elementary computing skills

    1995 -- When I retired this year, I knew that much more use of computers would be made in classrooms.

    2000 -- Most schools taught internet use as early as 6th grade. Keyboard skills were also taught.

    2005 -- Some schools start supplying students with individual computers. Many computers within a classroom are linked.

    Perhaps other teachers will add to my brief summary from their own experiences.

    In the last few years, many schools have teachers post grades in a computer database that is also available on the school website for parents and students.
