In this segment from 1984, kids are asked “What is a Computer?” The answers are pretty decent and show a burgeoning understanding of what computers are, which I think is surprisingly good from kids in elementary school in 1984. They also intercut some footage of kids drawing on a Jack-in-the-Box and playing a word/picture game on their school’s TI machine.
