We are living in the 21st Century. However, there are still a large number of people that are not computer savvy. Often, this is true of older adults or those that simply do not have access to a computer or Internet access in their home. Today, it is vital to understand the way that computers operate because we live in a tech driven world. Alaska Airlines recently partnered with Code.org to provide free educational videos on how computers and the Internet work. Bill Gates stars in the series of educational videos along with other industry leaders.
In-flight Computer Education
The on-board education takes the place of the usual movies that are watched by passengers. Bill Gates and the other industry leaders believe that it is important for everyone to understand computers. We are a digital driven society. Today, the individual’s world revolves around their smartphone, computers, laptops, wearable tech, self driving cars, and more. Those that do not understand computers are going to feel left out.
Video Series Availability
The videos are going to be made available to the airlines. However, it is also important to note that the videos are also going to be introduced to middle school and high school curriculum. The short videos provide an easy way for adults and school age children to learn about computer hardware, software, circuits and more. The Alaskan Airlines In-flight Entertainment representative is really on board with the entire idea concerning providing videos on computer education because the videos are very entertaining and also quite educational.
