After working in journalism and publishing, I returned to study – this time completing a PGCE at Homerton College, Cambridge.
By now, computing had moved on and we had a computer in many classrooms. Never more than one per classroom, though. The college was better supplied – we had a whole roomful of computers we could use for word processing. In terms of professional training as teachers, though, things didn’t progress far past showing the cohort how to switch them on and load up some basic software.
