Computer Skills for Little Kids

An introductory book for beginners about getting to know the computer; using multimedia; and using the Internet.

Zoë Hulme,

Computer Skills for Little Kids: An introductory book for beginners about getting to know the computer; using multimedia; and using the Internet.

Many of the activities in this blackline masters book have been designed for students aged 6, 7 and 8 years. However the book can be used by any computer learner. The activities can be completed individually or, particularly for early learners, as a whole class or large group activity.

Most teachers know how to use a computer (or at least know how to turn one on) but they aren?t always sure how to teach children to use one. With this book, I hope to make the task a little easier. Many of the activities don?t involve using a computer, but are designed to reinforce the skills needed on the computer. Once children are familiar with an activity, develop related independent activities that children can choose to do, by enlarging them and putting them on card. Keep these near the computer for reference.

The book includes sections on:

Labelling the Parts of a Computer

Computer Vocabulary

The Language of Word Processing
