Extractions: Computer Learning Foundation OVERVIEW COMPUTER LITERACY: A GROWING NATIONAL CONCERN A number of national studies have been commissioned in recent years to address the issues surrounding computer literacy. The goal of these studies was to gain a clear idea of just how successful we have been to date in integrating technology into our schools and helping our kids leverage it's capabilities to the fullest. In the much publicized 1983 study, A Nation At Risk, computer literacy joined the familiar "3R's" reading, writing and arithmetic as one of the fundamental skills our children need to master. Another more recent study called Power On! was commissioned by the U.S. Congress and released by the Office of Technology Assessment. Power On! provides insight into the effective integration of computer technology tools into the classroom as a catalyst for improved learning. Both of these government studies reflect a growing national concern about the progress made in providing our children with the most up-to-date skills. ¥ A major percentage of our population does not read or even speak English. According to Nation's Business, more than 40 million adults or 30 percent of the American adult population cannot "read, write or reason well enough to compete in today's economy" and the number of functional illiterates are growing each year by an estimated 2.3 million.

Extractions: Five Secrets for Parents to Help Encourage Responsible Use of the Internet By Marty W Stewart Web Site: Responsible Kids Network Children are increasingly using the Internet for schoolwork,research, communicating through e-mail and live chat, and downloading information like music files and streamline video. As technology progresses and children find even more need to use the Internet, parents must develop clear-cut and consistent rules while children are online. Establishing these rules can be quite a challenge for many parents. Since most children over the age of 10 or 11 probably know more about the Internet than mom or dad, it's imperative that parents continue to absorb what's available to children and communicate and teach responsibility while spending time online.

Extractions: Issue 5 is our biggest and best issue so far. Our main feature this month is on burning CDs and DVDs. Windows XP's built-in CD burning features are fine to get started with, but are a bit limited. We tell you which free CD/DVD burning software to get, how to burn music and movies to disc and even how to "slipstream" your Windows XP installation CD so that it becomes a Windows XP SP2 installation CD. We're really pleased with our reviews this month, as Michael, our reviews ed, has got his hands on a notebook from Acer which uses Intel's new Sonoma chipset, the replacement for Centrino. We've also got a new Media Center PC from Hewlett Packard and a Toshiba notebook, plus reviews of Acronis TrueImage and Intuit Quickbooks. See below for a full list of items reviewed this issue.
