I more or less accept this question is off topic: https://cseducators.stackexchange.com/questions/461/teach-children-living-in-the-online-society
In the question's defense:
- I asked about websites, programs and methods.
- I certainly expect the CS teacher in my kid's school to teach her internet safety. I think it is way more important than teaching programming.
- I admit it is a "shopping list" question, but we all know there are many shopping list questions on this site with tons of answers and upvotes.
So in my opinion, internet safety, conscious internet usage, and generally the very basic skills needed in today's online world belongs to CS education, which means it belongs on this site. Do they?
If not, then where is the limit? Teaching to efficiently search the internet is on or off topic? Virus protection? Pirating and torrents? Netiquette? Kindergarten level computer education? Or only programming questions are on topic?
We should try to define the scope a bit better, because right now this site is mostly about teaching programming - which is OK if that is the scope, but is it?
OK, CS education <> IT education. My mistake. Help me then:
Would questions related to teaching MS Office applications (e.g. Excel Pivot tables or Solver etc. or PowerQuery or MS Access) be blatantly off topic?)
OK, so now this question is on topic?
We really need to decide what this site is about.
