The Junior Computer Dictionary. 101 Useful Words and Definitions to Introduce Students to Computer Terminology.
Willing, Kathlene R.; Girard, Suzanne
Suitable for children from grades four to seven, this dictionary is designed to introduce children to computer terminology at a level that they will understand and find useful. It is also suitable as a home resource for parents, for library use, and as a handbook for teachers. For each word, the first sentence of the definition contains the kernel of meaning, followed by additional explanation. The illustrations, which include diagrams, an animated computer character, and practice keyboards, extend the definitions and involve the reader. The 101 vocabulary entries were drawn from eight categories: general concepts, hardware, inner workings, commands, programs, keys, language, and communications. (HOD)
