Over 650 people participated in these activities. Friday evening the keynote speaker was John D'Angelo of Texas Instruments, who discussed the language LOGO and displayed on a projection TV screen his company's implementation of that language.
On Saturday attendees heard Steve Jobs, Chairman of the Board of Apple Computer, Inc. and one of the inventors of that machine, discuss his image of the future of computers in education. For the remainder of the day conference-goers chose from 85 curriculum sessions, 50 commercial presentations, and 45 commercial exhibits.
