Appeared fierce desire to organize and hold free lectures at my old school (for students and teachers). Short — "a Basic course in computer literacy".
I care about the current state of Affairs, when many working with PC people don't understand the basic principles of "How it works". I believe that it is necessary to know for each:
— how does the PC (what it consists of and how to interact with its component nodes)
— what is the OS (for what it is, different OS family and their differences)
— what is a computer program
— how does a computer network (LAN, Internet, TCP/IP, DNS, DHCP, HTTP)
— disassembly and reassembly of a PC (it's interesting, it's fun and useful, will consolidate the first lesson)
— basic network configuration with static addresses between the two PC's. (I think this example should reinforce the concept of networking, will solidify the lesson about networking)
I have a question, dear harrowdale:
— What do you think should be included or excluded from the list above?
— Are there ready-made plans such lectures with well-chosen questions for the presentation?
— How you consider, whether such a project in our schools?
I will be very glad to questions, sentences, ideas.
