Abstract

This paper describes my memories as one of the pupils taking computer studies in South Africa in the late 1970s, when such programs were still uncommon. The differences between how the subject was approached back then and current approaches are not only due to technological developments; the 1970s curriculum reflects a fundamentally different approach.
