Children are very curious about the computer and how to use it. Using computers appropriately improves cognitive development such as motor- visual skills, creates new learning aspects for language tools and information learning, improves social and emotional development, and helps children who suffer from learning disorders to use computer programs to solve tasks that they cannot solve in the traditional ways (Seng, 1998; Scoter JV, Ellis D, Railsback J, 2001).

in this paper we introduce one of the Strategies used in the kindergartens in the Arab Bedouin sector in Israel (a conservative traditional population) who are not very open to the digital life and which usually has a large number of children which makes it difficult for the teacher to deal with the different children and their abilities, so using a variety of learning strategies is very important. Computer activity can be one of these strategies. Using computer skills helps the teacher to reach more pupils at the same time. It also helps pupils to solve tasks as the computer is very attractive and easy to use. It improves the self-confidence of the child and challenges him to do more and be curious and motivated to find out and investigate more through this medium (Nir-Gal, 1996; Levin, 2004).

The results of this project support the account written above and show the advantages of using computer activities as a new version of the classical dialectical methods which directly targets the subjects taught in kindergarten.
