New Brunswick Aboriginal Workplace Essential Skills Curriculum: Course 4 (2010)

Computer Systems

The New Brunswick Aboriginal Workplace Essential Skills (NBAWES) project was designed to help Aboriginal adults improve both their literacy skills and their employability. It uses existing workplace Essential Skills curricula, adapted to meet the specific needs of Mi’kmaq and Maliseet adult learners.

In this unit of the NBAWES curriculum, participants become familiar with the structure and function of the primary components of computer systems. They will be expected to be able to describe the prevalence and role of computers in people’s lives; differentiate between the terms hardware, software, and operating systems; identify the functions of each of the hardware components; and describe the different ways that computer systems are used.

The unit is part of a curriculum designed to be presented over 34 weeks.
