Computer Literacy Activities for Elementary and Middle School Students.
Douziech, Richard; And Others
All elementary and middle school students can gain five different types of knowledge about computers: (1) how to operate a computer; (2) roles computers play in different subject areas and outside of education; (3) how to direct a computer to aid them in writing, information retrieval, music composition, and creative art; (4) algorithmic thinking; and (5) computer vocabulary. This booklet includes a brief introduction to computers, followed by a collection of 12 activities for a variety of grade levels, designed to help students and their teachers learn more about computers and computer-related ideas. Few activities require access to computers and all can be used by a teacher who is just starting to learn about computers. A glossary and a brief list of additional sources of information are included. (TE)
