Rice, Jean M.
This computer literacy project, which was carried out with a group of fifth grade students, was designed to provide them with an enjoyable experience in learning about the computer through such activities as interactive programs, games, discussions, interviews, and field trips. Course content covered the history of computers, computer components, applications, flowcharting, and an introduction to programming. Student, parent, and staff surveys were conducted to determine the viability of the project. This project provided the basis for a computer literacy text, "My Friend the Computer," by Jean M. Rice.
