Computer skills are becoming necessary for almost every facet in life, but teaching it can often be left by the wayside. Written for novice teachers who want their children to learn computer science (here, most extensively the Logo programming language), "pure and simple" chapters use photos of actual web browsers, icons, etc. for maximum clarity. Chapters are arranged in a mixture of short, introductory lessons and followed by a more in depth review. Students will learn about internet design, searching online, word processing, animation, spreadsheets and more. Assignments and answers included. 153 indexed pages, softcover, spiral bound. 4th Edition. Grades 5 & up.
This fourth edition features minor updates, including new illustrations and instructions for the latest versions of Word and Excel. Please note! In order to use this curriculum a sold-separately CD-ROM must be ordered; either MicroWorlds EX or MicroWorlds 2.0 may be used.
