One down, two to go.

Wah Hoo!! I am finished one of my classes for the summer session, Introduction to Computers. I’m glad it’s finished on one hand, but sad on the other because my professor has so much more to impart.That is the main trouble with 8 week sessions – there’s just not enough time to really learn.

In addition to that is the fact that there were people in the class who didn’t know how to turn on the computer nor how to load a disk and who didn’t even know what a mouse was.  Seriously, there needs to be a sublevel Intro class, don’t you think?

As a homeschool mom, I was inundated with statistics on how repetition was the key to true learning. After all, how much can one really learn if a project or report is only completed one time? Trust me, not a lot. That’s why the book for the class isn’t going back to the college bookstore but will live on my shelf of useful tomes…as opposed to all of the un-useful books I’ve collected over the last few many, many years.

I have learned a lot in this class, and ended up with an “A” (go, me!), but I think I shall try to see where I can add some more computer classes because they are just so much fun.
