Technically Cool Computing
Technically Cool Computing (TCC) is a computer ergonomics learning activity module for students developed by members of the Puget Sound Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (PSHFES). The TCC module teaches students how to evaluate their computer workstations and work habits in order to reduce their risk for musculoskeletal injuries. TCC is a user-friendly learning module that can be easily implemented by teachers or other volunteers to provide tools for lifelong habits of safe computing. This video will guide you through using TCC.
Pilot studies of the TCC program resulted in 100% of students able to recognize risk-producing postures and also successful in correcting awkward postures at their classroom computer workstations.
We invite you to use this curriculum to help educate children in developing healthy computing habits. You can download the Technically Cool Computing activity kit materials in .pdf format:
