This unit will teach children the basic computer skills that they will need in order to be able to use a desktop or laptop computer. Children will learn how to use a computer mouse and how to switch on and shut down a computer. They will apply their mouse skills by launching applications, manipulating windows and opening and saving files and folders. The children will then practise their clicking skills and learn how to drag objects, either using a mouse or trackpad
