Poughkeepsie Day School is an independent coeducational school serving students in New York, USA. In 1989 Commodore made a film about the educational uses and applications of the Amiga. PDS was among the schools they approached. Former librarian Joan Scott was the point person for the collaboration.  The Amiga heralded a new era of computing for education. This was not the rather dull machine of the business world. This was color and music and voice and video and animations and desk-top publishing. This was a brave new world of action, doing, learning, making creating. None the less the school is still using the Commodore Amiga as an example model of how computing began.
