Liddy Nevile is adjunct associate professor at La Trobe University in Melburne, Australia. She became interested in how computers could be used in education in the 1970’s. Since then she has worked on future scenarios for education with programming of computers as a basic skill for all, the first school in the world where every child had a laptop computer, the $100 computer for developing countries, accessibility and cataloguing of the Web, and international standards for the use of technology in education. Her passion is for the use of new technologies to do what can’t be done without them. When not working on such problems, she cares for her animals and plants on a very small farm.
