The course in computer skills aims to give students all the computer knowledge necessary for them to get an idea own clear and sufficiently detailed (although on certain technical details approximate) what is this science that goes by the name computer science and how and with what effects it in favor of human development and education sciences. Explain and make it clear to the students of the bachelor degree in Education Sciences What is actually a computer and how it functions is another objective of the course. Students will also acquire, for all practical purposes, mastered all the most common Italian and English linguistic expressions, their abbreviations and acronyms of the IT world. Finally the students will acquire skills on the use of operating systems with graphical interface of word processing systems, electronic spreadsheets and tools for finding information and documentation on the web.
The course is divided into two parts: theory (rudiments of information technology and their application to humanistic social science) and practice (this part aims to teach information technology skills)
The topics will be addressed in the order they are listed in the program.
Theory (contents) (8 ore)
Introduction to information technology and to computer: basic concepts
Computer architecture, hardware. Input/output devices
The binary code
Software and Algorithm
Basic and application software
Productivity software (application software dedicated to producing information, such as documets, presentations, worksheets, databases, charts,graphts, digital paintings, electronic music and digital video)
Computer networks. Client-server architectures
Internet and the basic services
Web browsing and on-line security
Application of information technology to human sciences
Practice (contents) (16 ore)
No specific prerequisites are needed. We still need a basic familiarity with the computer (use of keyboard, monitor and mouse, opening and closing of the working session, etc.)
