 Collection — Folder: 1
Identifier: SMHC Collection 1469

Overview

The Frankie Bly collection consists of an audiocassette and transcript of an oral history interview conducted between Bly and Robert Bartscher during the winter of 1987. In the interview, Bly, a teacher in the Blue Earth, Minnesota, discussed his work in a special program that involved the extended use of classroom computers. The program was undertaken to learn about the impact of computers on students’ learning. Bly noted that increased use of computers in education created more teacher preparation. Furthermore, because of the increased demands of preparing lessons, teachers increasingly became aware of individual student progress while helping teachers ascertain the learning levels of various students.

This oral history interview was conducted as a requirement for a course entitled Current Issues in Public Education at Mankato State University in Mankato, Minnesota.
