Basic Computer Skills for Homeschooling – WHS 75 – The Wired Homeschool

Every parent needs basic computer skills to use digital technology in their homeschool.  If you didn’t have those skills you wouldn’t be reading this blog post or listening to the podcast. 99% of the skills you have you probably learned by watching others or you had to figure it out yourself. Sometimes you learn later on that the way you’re doing something can be done faster and easier.

Getting your kids started using computers isn’t that hard, sure, you can sit them in front of a keyboard and let them mess around but the won’t really learn how to do things the right way.

In this episode of the podcast I talk about some of the basic computer skills you’ll want to teach your children and some skills that you need to know as a parent.

This isn’t a tutorial, just an overview of some of the basic things you need to know and what you will want to teach your kids.
