How Do I Teach Computer Technology?

 
Do you know of a good source for learning computer technology?  My daughter knows the basics and practices the key board.

~ Margie

Hi Margie!  It's good to meet you!

For computer technology, I don't have a particular curriculum in mind.  I will say that a lot of teenagers are pretty good about learning technology on their own, because they are interested.  Consider getting tutorials from the library, or even tutorials that come with some of the Microsoft Office software and using those as your "curriculum."  Once she knows keyboarding skills as a basis, then it's most helpful to learn basic programs that we use all the time:  Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.   Some parents will watch what their children do for fun, and then include that in their technology course.  So if your child likes Photoshop, or YouTube, or website design, or blogging, you can include those experiences as well.  

Margie, thanks for the questions.  It sounds like you are doing a GREAT job of paying attention to the details about high school.  I'm really impressed that you are thinking it through, and I'm confident you'll succeed - because you're trying!  Good job!  It's sounds like your daughter is in a PERFECT position to be prepared for college!

Then there are some kids who are so interested in computers that they, after roughly 27 years, are still teaching themselves about computers, and are making a career of it :-)

I call my husband a "Vintage Geek" because his first computer was a TI-99/4A.

Anyone else remember the sound those cassette tapes made while you were loading the programs into memory? And how loooooong it took?

:-)

Weren't no such thing as that internet doohickey in those days. Yes, and we walked ten miles barefoot in the snow uphill both ways to school.
