Computer Literacy can improve aided by hobbies like short stories
How can short stories improve computer literacy? Simple really.
If you manage to encourage your child to 'write' a short story, they will almost immediately want to type it out. If they haven't already, they will soon see that keyboarding a story is more efficient that actually writing.
When you type or keyboard a long document, you are better able to read it back, move paragraphs and even correct spelling and grammar.
Printing the document on paper is just a bonus we all enjoy. The trick is that your children realizes this too. They may even gravitate toward using the computer long before you would.
So what ends up happening? First, you have to get them set up to start typing so you end up teaching them something and become their information resource. Second, you may see what they are doing wrong, and they will learn by seeing a better way after you show them.
Soon they will be ripping off one story after another and your printer will be spewing out paper dust!
