Students really need a lot of experience with the whole computer thing, like emails. Sending emails, receiving emails, deleting emails.
Contrary to popular belief, there’s a lot more you can do with a computer beyond emailing. There’s the web. Students also need to learn the proper technique involved in using a mouse, clicking, and double clicking.
And even though many think it’s “beyond students’ capability” to truly understand all the technical hardware behind making a computer run, I think it is imperative for them to know what these things are, such as: the computer screen, the keyboard, and the thing that goes on the floor, I think it’s called the hard drive, but I could be wrong because I’m not a computer scientist.
