WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED: Just for fun, check out these episodes from a TVOntario program made in 1983, called "Bits and Bytes." As you watch think about not only how much has changed, but also how much is still true today! (Here's a little Park School history note: the beginning of Episode 3 shows someone writing a program on an Apple IIe...almost exactly the way my own students at Park School learned programming--in 1987!)
