Computers and Young Children: Procedures and Practices in the Computer Laboratory.
Baker, Betty Ruth
This paper discusses techniques for the preservice teacher to use in planning computer learning experiences for young children. Teachers need to become aware of the functions of the computer, the capabilities of computer technology with young children, and the response of young children to the computer in the learning environment. Teachers should be able to develop a plan for a computer center, and strive to promote computer awareness and computer literacy in children. They should also utilize the technology of computer assisted instruction (CAI) for drills and practice, tutorials, and simulations. The paper contains lists of computer terms, helpful hints on how to teach young children about computers, suggested computer activities for young children, and a list of 39 software programs designed for young children that cover the topics of language, numbers, classification, spatial relations, and creative projects.
