One reference on the British case springs to mind:

Neil Selwyn, "Learning to love the micro: the discursive construction of 
'educational' computing in the UK, 1979-89". British Journal of 
Sociology of Education, 23:3 (2002), 427-443.

Selwyn was originally interested in this question from an education 
policy perspective, but this article is a historical review.
