CanDo!’s founder has been in the computer world for a very long time.
Because Lucy Kaplan was an innovative Math and Science teacher, when computers hit the scene, she was selected to spearhead some of the first computer laboratories to pervade Chicago Public Schools in the mid 1970s. Through a National Science Foundation Grant offered to teachers in the late 70s, she was introduced to one of the first generations of personal computers (accompanied by tape players – pre-diskettes). Captivated by their tremendous potential, she learned programming and explored multiple avenues of available software to furnish those computer labs and spark others’ creativity.
Among the many software packages purchased for her first privately owned computer (computers cost over $3,500 in the mid 80s) two have withstood the trials of time. To this day, FileMaker and QuarkXPress still remain award-winning industry standards.
Striving to keep abreast of cutting-edge breakthroughs, she has been affiliated with numerous professional organizations through the years.
