Over this past weekend I gave ian his first cursory introduction to computers; specifically laptops and how the Internet is built. He didn’t absorb much, but he paid attention. Afterwards, he could name the following things:

  1. Screen, Keyboard, Battery, DVD player(drive), touchpad.
  2. He knew that the linksys switch talked to the laptop with it’s antennas
  3. He recognized the Cable Modem
  4. Knows which line running out of the house is for internet access
  5. Knows that our ISP is WOW! cable
  6. Knows that WOW! is connected “to the other computers”

not bad for a four and a half year old.
