Kay-Dee Edu Care Centre - Computer Lessons

Computer Lessons

Our first few lessons are intended to help learners understand the basics of how computers work and how to use them, the rules and regulations, such as do not touch on any keys without the teacher present, not to touch on the computer screen, no eating by the computers, etc.

Today’s children are more exposed to technology than ever before. The possibility of applying computers to education or pre-schoolers today seem an immeasurable blessing at first glance.

Because a computer shows no emotions, it does not get frustrated, bored, or angry and it does not err (assuming the programing is not flawed). It has the ability to act as a teacher of unending patience and infallible accuracy. Computers have the capacity to be incredible learning tools for pre-schoolers and children who are struggling with their absorption of knowledge in class.

Computer Skills and Early Childhood Development

Computers today are inescapable. All children should be taught computer skills. Children learn to write their names, match letters / sounds, identify number symbols, number names and sets, add and subtract, halving, graphs, etc. It encourages and motivates them, provides a sense of accomplishment, and inspires children to explore with all of their senses.

It is a unique way of helping a child feel powerful in a grown-up-world and building their self-esteem. It also helps to develop team-work and communication skills. Simple animated games can help develop their hand-eye coordination and generic computer-use ability.

However, being good for all that is not sufficient reason for a computer to be included in a child’s world. It must also have a major effect on the child’s ability to learn. Therefore, the computer also facilitates LEARNING to pre-schoolers.

Play is one of the most important methods through which learning takes place in the pre-school. It is not just the interaction between children, but the interaction between the children and their environment.

While computer time should never be the majority of any structured learning plan, balancing the use of technology with appropriate off-line “developmental activities” helps prepare children for the digital world they’ll grow up in.
