Activity Purpose/ Summary:
This was the initial computer class for the 8th grade at the Korando Educational Center in 2024. After a short introduction by the volunteer we started an open discussion about computers in general. This has included the following topics:
– concept of a computer
– types of computer
– characteristics of a computer
– functions of a computer (how a computer works in general)

Technical facts and functions were also demonstrated and explained by simple examples, for instance how the input/output looks in practice.

Personnel Input:
Volunteer brought in personal experience from multiple trainings as a professional IT consultant to host training / educational sessions. Technical items such as a laptop, smartphone and smartwatch were used to illustrate the variety of computer usage in modern times.

This session can be seen as a friendly getting to know each other covering basics in terms of computers. Given the reactions from students they obviously have learned new facts and got a better understanding or a general understanding. In general students cooperated well.

Unanticipated Achievements:
The grade has happily concluded the session by a warm applause.
