DETAIL OF THE EVENT
Micros and Primary Education (MAPE) formed after a conference in 1981 at Exeter University for primary teachers, headteachers, advisors and lecturers. MAPE produced an influential newsletter called MicroScope which was circulated to local primary schools and later to LEA advisors. Membership reached a high of over 5,000 in 1993 but fell back as teachers turned increasingly to official guidance (e.g. QCA schemes of work) and NoF training. MAPE eventually amalgamated with NAACE.
