SEMERCs and the 1980s

The video above is of the 1989 "Micros for Special Needs Exhibition" run by the Oldham SEMERC (Special Education Micro-electronics Resource Centres). SEMERCs were set up under the aegis of the Council for Educational Technology in 1982 which shared a body of knowledge on accessible technology for children around the UK.

1982 was also the year that the BBC launched their Computer Literacy Project backed by the Acorn BBC Micro computer. Big improvements in access to computers were just around the corner.
