As a primary school teacher of many years experience Graham grew to realise the importance of individualised programmes of work and the element of fun in learning. With the advent of educational computing around 1984 he enthusiastically embraced the new technology and was soon an avid user of Apple II computers with his classes. He instantly recognised the educational potential of the new technology, and before long was a respected practitioner of educational computing, training other staff and advising other schools. This interest and passion grew into a small educational computing business called New Horizons that commenced in 1987. The business grew rapidly to become the preeminent supplier of educational software to Australian schools.
