Children from a young age should not just learn how to use computers and digital devices but also understand how computers help us, the differences between different types of digital technology and recognise basic components.
These activities should ideally be taught in sequence to first develop an understanding of computers before using them to achieve and help with basic tasks.
Each activity has a suggestion of an area(s) of learning.
Parts of a computer
Computer repair shop (role play)
Control a computer (mouse and touch)
