Generation LinuX, Part 1--The Basics
Who's Teaching Kids About Computers?
Barriers to solving real-world, everyday problems with cutting-edge computer technology are now gone. Linux and Open Source Software offer a giant toolbox, full of shiny new tools, just waiting to be put to good use by our children.
Oh, I agree that we shouldn't necessarily turn a kid into some super-techno geek. Balancing the ability to learn and master complexity with the bigger picture in mind simply gives them one more competitive advantage in the world.
It's a shame not to take advantage of kids' natural curiosity and lack of preconceived notions, when all it takes is a little attention and a minimum outlay of cash.
This series will suggest how you can augment your kid's current computer education program. I'll also point out pitfalls, that cause difficulty and frustration for both you and your child. Later articles will discuss how a kid can use Linux and Open Source tools for productive work.
