    Interesting timeline. I have taught using almsot ALL of these technologies (not all at the same time, of course). The Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium (1973 item known as MECC) was revolutionary for the software it provided for early Apple computers. I thought I learned somewhere that the overhead projector first was used in bowling alleys to project the scores; Wikipedia seems to agree it was developed first in the military. When I came to SCSU in 1989, we taught these technologies in the preservice class for educational technologies: creating transparencies (some with color), using overhead projector, mounting pictures for display, and threading and running 35mm projectors and filmstrip projectors. We also taught using Apple IIE computers, had a unit about Minnesota’s distance learning network (where some students watched on 12″ monitors!), and helped students produce edit-in-the-camera videos. Ah, the good old days!
