Is Computer Education Necessary?

girl-computerOver the past few years, we see an increasing high number of elementary and middle schools integrating computer education as part of their curriculum. Our educators recognize the importance of teaching our students the skills they will need in their future. Computer education has many advantages. It helps build teamwork, allows a kid to explore algorithmic thinking, pushes them to problem solve and makes them confident to explore, investigate and experiment new technologies independently.

Yes! Computer education is very important.

We all have seen our daily lives change and become increasing dependent on technology. Some parents feel computer education is for older kids. Computer education can start as young three years old. Children are developing their gross and fine motor skills at this age. The correct introduction to computers is imperative. Making sure the content is age appropriate, and matches their motor skills is pertinent. Computerwisekids does just that! Our software is specially designed with the young in mind. We teach them eye hand coordination and all the computer basics to prepare them for the next step of learning.

Other parents feel their kids will learn computers on their own. There are many skills your child may not learn on their own. Internet safety is not learned, it is taught. Kids can only behave in cyberspace, the way they have been taught. Making sure they know what to do if faced with a bad situation is our job, not something we can hope they learn on their own.

In all my experience of teaching, I still have to come across a student who will teach me an Excel trick. Yes, students are always teaching me new things; but at the end of the year I know I have taught them something they might have not learned on their own.

Computer Education is more important today than ever. Computer literacy for kids should consist

• Computer Basics
• Keyboard Skill
• Internet safety
• Mouse control
• Understanding files, storage
• Using software as a tool
• Internet safety/Research
• Understanding how computer peripherals work
