Kids, Computers and You: What Parents Can Do Now to Prepare Their Children for the Future

Front Cover

Whether we like it or not, computers are here to stay, and it is up to us as parents to ensure that our children are receiving a healthy introduction to the world of technology at school.

Offering a commonsense approach to computer education in Canada, Kids, Computers & You allows parents to assess just what is (or isn't) going on in our classrooms and then gives advice on how we can help improve the situation.

The authors offer parents with little or no knowledge of computers a comprehensive guide to the use of technology in schools as well as practical suggestions to problems such as antiquate equipment, untrained teachers, inappropriate curriculum and techno-zealots who seem intent on turning primary-grade students into programmers.
