"In fact, one of the saddest but most common conditions in elementary school computer labs (when they exist in the developing world), is the children are being trained to use Word, Excel and PowerPoint. I consider that criminal, because children should be making things, communicating, exploring, sharing,not running office automation tools." (Nicholas Negroponte, Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab)
Well, I do not have experienced elementary school children using computers. My eldest son goes to the pre-school. When he uses the computer, he follows threads he can understand, he does what he views as attractive.
Although he knows - for example - where to find games and knows how to play, he most often turns to websites, where he can compose his owm TV program. He thoroughly chooses little bits here and there, and he very often repeats the little movies - by his own choice.
So far for now.
