Computers are incredibly fast, accurate, and stupid. People are incredibly slow, inaccurate, and brilliant. Combine the two and we can do anything!
I have noticed over the course of time that we rarely put these little boxes of technology to work. They are more than a mere window to the internet or research tool.
There are two ways to approach computers or any technological device in a home education environment:
Learning About – History, Evolution, Applications, and Programming
Learning With – Use, Connect, Integrate, and Plan
Depending on your need, approach both links with your goals in mind. I, by no means, have listed all of the possible uses or novelties, but I strive to provide links and information to help you. You will find that I do not recreate the information, but I will host a link instead. There is no need to recreate what is well-stated and represented.
