After many five-minute sessions practicing mouse skills, children move on to keyboarding skills. Kindergarteners probably can't use the correct fingers, but they can learnwhere the letters are on the keyboard, and they can use just their thums for the space bar, which aligns their hands in the right areas for tha natural progression of keyboarding skills.
When used properly, computers and other technology can help children learn, both in short, simple lessons and as an integral part of larger, more complex, projects. Including technology as a part of classroom activities can motivate students and allow them to learn and share their understanding in a variety of ways.
Kids love using the computer and feel very grown up. In addition, they are increasing their computer skills while learning valuable information.
