Computer lessons are offered also to the pupils of the Primary School of Stadio by the Foundation, in cooperation with the Parents’ Association of the Primary School of Stadio, Tegea. The courses are addressed to students in the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades of the school. They take place in the computer room of the school, which is specially arranged for this purpose and is equipped with state-of-the-art computers. The lessons take place for two hours a week. They are held on Saturdays so as not to distract pupils from their homework on school days. The units taught are: Word, Excel, Internet, PowerPoint, Access, Windows, Logo, Scratch and Operating System.
It is believed that by incorporating educational activities into the educational procedure, students can obtain knowledge, understand concepts, develop cooperation and communication skills, be entertained and encouraged by the use of new technologies in their daily life. Computers should be utilised as a useful aid to teaching, to enrich the learning environment.
In fact, in a learning environment that is more interactive, students show greater interest in the educational procedure. They thus generate new ideas, express opinions and find solutions to potential problems. They learn how to react faster and actively participate in the educational process, which helps them transform from a passive recipient into a generator of information and knowledge.
