Work with the entire class or a small group of leaders to decide upon a short message to be spelled out by the card section. An example might be THE FIFTH GRADE SAYS HELLO." Count the number of letters and blanks paces in the message (in this case there are 25 letters and blanks).

Computer Literacy Activities for Elementary and Middle School Students, 1983

Gottesman Libraries holds a remarkable collection of computer literacy curriculum from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s showcasing the ways that computers and technology first made its way into the classroom. Strategies for increasing computer literacy among both children and educators focused on building bridges with metaphors. Instructional strategies for educators aimed to ease anxieties of early classroom computer use, as well as provide frameworks based on computer science curriculum that could be applied or modified for the K-12 classroom. Other materials focus on designing computer science and programming instruction with technology of the times. Threads of these early instructional strategies continue to influence the evolving relationships between technology and the classroom today.
