Computers. They used to be mystical and magical in appearance. We were all amazed at their capabilities. [While] that was at the infancy of the computer [then], the students in the schools today are growing up in a computerized society. We bank through computers, we play games with computers, we make reservations through computers, and computers even connect our phone calls. There is no question that we must produce computer literate adults, and our schools have adapted their curriculum to reflect that need. One of the additions to the curriculum has been computer programming even though most do not believe that it is necessary for computer literacy. But, if computer programming is going to be taught we need to look at why we are teaching it and what our goals should be.
