My background with computers.

In 1967 I wrote a term paper for a Sociology course and I predicted teaching machines in the classroom.  My professor gave me a very hard time about that.  In 1968 I took a computer programming class (using punch cards!) In the early 1980's I was on the Internet and began using computers in the classroom in the late 1980's.

One way we used the Internet in the Library...(1998)
A math class was in my library doing a cooperative learning lesson on fractions and percentages using M & M packages. The students wanted to know why the packages were not uniform in quantity. Cybrary Man immediately had the students email M&M/Mars. That same day they got the following answer with the average mix of colors in percentages: “Because of the difference in the sizes of the individual candy, the number of pieces per package varies. However, the package should be the indicated weight.”
