The future looks bright in our county

Who would have thought that grandchildren would be able to teach their grandmother and grandfather how to get on the internet, do a google search and print out directions to the grandparent’s favorite destination?

If they attend Meadowview Christian pre-school then that is not far from a reality.

The pre-school is currently teaching children how to work on computers.

The 3- and 4-year-olds spend 20 minutes a day staring at a computer screen with one hand on a mouse and the other on a keyboard.

They are utilizing the power of PC’s to expand their knowledge in math, English and other fundamental skills needed to make the transition to Kindergarten. Lorrie Lippeatt, lab instructor, stated in yesterday’s STJ that the classes also teach hand and eye coordination which is essential in growth development.

The future is certainly correlated to the increasingly significant role that computers play.

Everywhere you go you are sure to find the work of a Macintosh, Dell or Gateway computer.

It can stretch from billboards, to newspapers to what appears on your television.

We commend Meadowview Christian for taking the initiative and teaching the children of Dallas County the basics of computers.

With efforts such as this, the future has no limits on what the children of Dallas County will be able to do.
