We are excited to announce that we are back with our NEW Online Programs in 2022!

To kick off the New Year we are introducing 2 new Microsoft Office Programs for kids.

In a rapidly changing world, we have seen that education systems are slow to adapt. This means kids can’t often advance as quickly as they are capable of, or don’t get the exposure to technology that’s needed for a bright future.

Microsoft Word (MS Word) is a component of the Microsoft Office suite of productivity software, but can also be purchased as a stand-alone product. It is used to make professional-quality documents, letters, reports, and many more. MS Word is a word processor developed by Microsoft. It has advanced features which allow you to format and edit your files and documents in the best possible way.

There’s a common misconception that you can simply pick up MS Word and start using it. Whilst this is true on a basic level due to the ease of use, there’s so much more to it that kids who want to get ahead can learn. It’s an extremely powerful tool that lets kids create different types of documents such as letters, assignments, reports, their own books, magazines, adverts, and posters.

Here are a few reasons why we think MS Word skills are so important for kids who are set for a brighter future. 

  1. Used globally

MS Word is used by schools and colleges globally. Kids that learn MS Word earlier on will be ahead of their peers, and potentially be able to work quicker, smarter, and better.

  1. Develops essential skills

Kids can develop the quality of their writing skills better due to the application’s ease of use. This encourages them to practice their writing more, plus learn to rectify their mistakes due to the built-in grammar and spelling tools. When you type wrong spelling on MS Word it highlights your mistake in the red line in real-time. Then you right-click and correct it. Similarly, children observe spelling mistakes in real-time. It means they will try to make the decision based on suggestions after a click on the word underline red. Now they can observe, judge, and think which spelling is correct.

  1. Instant help with language

With a comprehensive dictionary, thesaurus, and grammar help in over 40 languages, MS Word has the ability to detect spellings, grammar, and syntax errors instantly and provide you with a series of solutions to suit the sentence and document. What’s more, MS Word can also detect the language you are using and prompt the corrections accordingly, a setting which allows you to combine multiple languages in a single document.

  1. Helps kids in their typing skills

MS Word can help kids to learn how to not just touch type but also type quicker and with more accuracy. MS Word is the standard when it comes to word processing applications, and even with the rise in popularity of Google Docs, it’s still maintaining its market share. It’s likely to be around for many years to come.

  1. Good for your kid’s future careers

Future employers expect the best potential employees to not just have a working knowledge of MS Word but be able to harness the more powerful functionality to set them apart from the rest of the candidates.

Most people don’t realise the advanced features that are available in MS Word. All of these and more are taught in our kids’ Microsoft Word lessons. Your child will learn how to create high-caliber, professional documents in a fraction of the time that they would ordinarily do.

The use of technologies in the classroom should be directed to enhance intelligence in students’ minds and not to make them lazy and less critical. It does not matter if it is MS Word or Google, Cloud applications, or gaming programs. Our online classes are designed to help children with the required skills to give them a head start and build confidence to grow up happy, successful, and achieve their full potential.
