Kids Explaining Computers in 1984
So what is a computer? According to kids on Sesame Street in 1984, "You press some buttons and then you can make a design." Yeah, that's pretty much what a computer is (and certainly what they were to me in 1984). Also: "It's something like a TV, and you can make pictures with it, and it helps you to read." Yes!
My favorite part:
Kid: "People don't have buttons and a computer does."
Teacher: "You have buttons on your shirt."
Kid: [Rolls eyes] "Ahhhh!"
If you liked that, you might enjoy The Last Decade According to 9-Year-Olds. For what it's worth, I could've sworn I'd posted this video years ago...but my computer tells me I never made a design about it. So now I'm pressing some buttons.
