How to Teach Computer for Children

I miss to write the hub about education topic. I got this idea after hear my students conversation. They talk about facebook during my class. They talk about how to create account, how to get many friends, how to put the picture, etc. It looks they easy to operate facebook than me. I thought the limitation of age to make a facebook account is seventeen years old, right! Why do they are easily accepted? I thought their age still eight years old. After the class finished, I interview them. And they made a shocking confession. They made a fake identity, include fake picture. Wow…wow…wow. How if we can found hundreds of fake identity which was operated by children. How if they met bad person in the virtual world? Do they ready with this? Do their parents know their activity? I thought this case will be a good idea for me to make a hub.

As a learning tool, a computer has lot of advantages than other device. It also provides many options for us to learn about anything. This is an internet era, right. By learning computer, it could raise independent learning for the child's interest. But the existence of computer can’t replace a parent or teacher interaction with children.

Beside a computer application programs (software), the internet world’s more meaningful for children. The Internet allows children to take and process knowledge or information from the sites their visited without the limitation of distance and time. In addition, there are other benefits from the Internet, such as correspondence (e-mail), chat, take / send information (download / upload), a place to ask anything.

As the learning center, a computer gave fun atmosphere for the children. The images and sounds that appear also made the children don’t get bored quickly, so as the media to stimulate the child to know further. On the other side, kids can be more diligent and stimulated in learning to concentrate. We can put them in the computer course or call the private mentor at home.

The benefit of learning computer for children

The development of computer technology increasingly advanced now. It makes a lot of people depend on these devices, ranging from the old, adult, teenager, until children. But for the children better they guided by their parent. The parent shouldn’t worry about this, because there are a lot of benefits of learning computer for children, like:

  • Computers will make the children become more excited to learn because of the educational software program. The more kids interested in the program, they also increasingly interested in learning. For example, they know the basic knowledge of software programs. Children would rather learn through the program along with images that can move and speak out, the page can opened automatically or the color of letters that can be changed.
  • The introduction of the computer world earlier will be felt at the time they enter the workforce later.
  • Various electronic games on a computer can help children to learn how to survive, make strategies, inspiring leadership, and play a role.
  • Because they often use computer, children can operate a variety of word processing program and numbers. The children also can learn to recognize colors and shapes through an education program operated by a computer. Children can be good at math because of frequent practice with computers and help the children to increase a lot of vocabulary in English.

Look their face!

How to prevent the negative effect of virtual world

We can’t deny with all effects from internet. It could be positive but in other hand, it could be negative. Especially for children, they have a big curiosity. Without good mentoring, they will search by their self. And this is not good for children development. They not mature enough to know about sex, adult content or violence. They easily get bad influence from outside, I heard about the Guys who has many identity to fool the victims mainly children. To abused the children. I thought we don’t want this happen with our kids, right. Maybe we can use simple tips from me. Teaching the Internet for children is an important thing. However, in order to prevent negative impacts, there are some things parents should be doing, like:

  • Who are the best persons as a good mentor for children to learn computer? The best answers are parents or teacher. Sometimes parents didn’t have time to teach their children, they can hire a private mentor at home. I thought a computer lesson part of the curriculum at school. Introduce Internet also means introducing the benefits and the intended use of the Internet. Therefore, they should cleverer than the children. They have to read literacy related with internet and always update some information. Unfortunately, children often are too sophisticated, while the teacher or her parents did not know anything. Do not know how to open the internet, also did not know anything about games that played. Later when there is a bad thing, the parents will regret.
  • Use specially designed software to protect children. That is to protect all the access from adult content or any kind of violence.
  • Put the computer in open spaces such as computer rooms, library, family room, and not in the child's room. Leaving the computer in a child's room, will make it a teacher or parent difficult in supervision. Children can freely access a porn site or use the sadistic or violence games in a locked room. When the computer was in the living room, they difficult to violate the rules because they often know family members passing through.

How become a wise parent

All the positive and negative impact due the children learning became the responsibility of parent. I know it hard to do. It depends on the readiness of parents in introducing and supervising the children when playing the computer. Therefore, to all parents, need to be reminded of their important role in the utilization of computers for children. Become a wise parent is good choice for us. But, what should we do?

  • Give children the opportunity to learn and interact with computers early on. Especially considering the use of computers is something that can’t be avoided in the present and future. I believe this useful for their brain development.
  • Note that the computer also has certain effects, including on children’s physical. Like space or light arrangement. The bright light and close distance view give bad effect for child's vision.
  • Choose specific software that is intended for children, such as edutainment software or educational games, always adjust the age and abilities of children.
  • Note the safety of children when playing the computer from electrical hazards.
  • Choose the ergonomic desk or chair (in accordance with the child's body shape and size), which is comfortable for the child.

    Storytelling culture has evolved since a long time ago. The early development of storytelling was limited in the royal environment.

However, many tales which contains a moral message and describing the truth. In this modern era, the activities of storytelling in the eyes of the children are not popular anymore.

Interesting hub as usual.

Computers are indeed an awesome learning tools if used properly. However, another thing parents should be aware of is how the computer monitor affects the children's eye sights. Children today are more prone to short-sightedness, and long hours computer usage is one of the culprits to it.

Your hubs are always good and yes computers are it for kids today and if they are censored somewhat I think it is great but we know much is on there not for kids. When I did my rape hubs and looked up information they had ads there about sex and that was so sick I thought, like on a page where it tells of a child has been raped there is almost naked women ads, we have to watch our children much closer than most think, I believe, so do warn your children in a gentle way please prasetio?

My son is ten and doing animation and creating his own channel on the web. My daughter is eight and knows how to do everything on my MAC! It amazes me! I'm very careful with what they can "view" and access. BUT it is always hard to keep on it constantly. Luckily they are aware of lots of it and always tell me if something looks wrong or they run across something strange on the web. So I try to make them aware and keep communication open....GREAT writing as usual....I hope you are well! G

prasetio, as the old saying goes 'you can't put an old head on young shoulders' This Hub should be prescribed reading for all parents of children with access to Computers. There is way too many predators looking for victims. Imagine if it was easy for your 8 year old students to get ID's for 18 year olds, how easy is it for experienced predators to do exactly the same thing?

An excellent hub that covers everything a child should know about computers and the internet. So often many issues are skipped over without giving children a full explanation of the risks and dangers of some areas. When you skip over or avoid topics this often makes the child more curious to find out why you are avoiding certain things and so they have a huge need to find out for themselves. Taking the time and making the effort to teach children properly is often rewarded by the child accepting what you have said and sticking to the rules.

I love how you also included ergonomics here. For many adults this is a normal practice, but I've very often seen that children are over-looked in this area. It's just as important for children to have the right chair, desk height and so on.

An excellent and very informative hub, vote up + awesome!

Hi, Seeker7. Good to see you here and share your thought about this topic. I totally agree with you about how to teach them well. The era has change dramatically, where the children easily got the information from the internet. Although internet also help them in finding the right info for their study. But we should give them more guidance. Thank you very much for coming and your vote really appreciated here. Cheers...
