Learning to use computers

The introduction of computers from the 1980s added more subjects to both primary and secondary curriculums, and changed the way pupils learned. These pupils of Bayfield High School, Dunedin, (from left, Aleki Morris, Celia Richardson, Jeremy Barnes and Jacob Dunn Dagg) speak to pupils at Bentonville High School, in Arkansas in the US, via live video conference in 2008. The exchange was part of a social studies class designed to give the students an insight into a different culture. The Bentonville students asked if Bayfield had a school marching band, if there were any Mormons in Dunedin, and whether New Zealanders liked Australians. The Bayfield students wanted to know what their American counterparts thought about President George W. Bush, nuclear power, global warming and civil rights.
