Synopsis

Learning with Computers by Diana M. Trabel, Jack Hoggatt

South-Western's Learning With Computers Levels K-5 is a series of project-based keyboarding books that teach and reinforce computer application skills to elementary students. This series covers the computer literacy skills established by the National Educational Technology Standards or NETS. Students learn to use a word processor, the Internet, graphics and presentation, spreadsheet, and database software while integrating core-curriculum skills of language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Additional cross-curricular activities to reinforce the computer skills taught are available at the end of each of the projects. Learning with Computers Level K teaches computer awareness skills. Students are introduced to the software applications and learn how the programs can be used to accomplish simple tasks. Awareness skills introduced include: parts of the computer, correct posture at the keyboard, demonstration of proper disk use and care, how to use a mouse, and more. This 128 page text is softcover, top spiral, and has an easel back. It is a standalone product that also supports Bernie's Typing Travels Keyboarding software.
