Computer Fundamentals:  This month we’ll start our 2-year learning cycle anew by introducing computer terminology, components and concepts. You’ll see the internal computer components like the power supply, hard disk drive, CD/DVD drive, motherboard, microprocessor chip and memory sticks. And you’ll learn what these parts do. We’ll explain the difference between Hardware and Software and introduce a couple of metaphors that put computer workings into everyday terms. You’ll learn fundamental software terms like Programs, Data, Files, Bits and Bytes. And we’ll refer you to some websites with free tutorials on computers and other cool things. This is the ideal “first” meeting for computer neophytes. If you have a neighbor, friend or relative who could use a new hobby, productivity enhancer or maybe just a little help with computer problems, then please bring him or her along.
