I know a grade 1 teacher who uses Math Frogs (a website) to help kids have fun while learning math. Incorporating technology into education can be easy both for the teacher and students.

I don't believe it needs to be a major course these kids know enough about computers as it is if they want to do that kind of thing they will what you should do is use computers during classes on core subjects like math,reading,science,ect

I don't think computers needs to be a major subject, it just needs to be integrated into other courses.

Yes, most definitely. Moores Law rolls on not controlled by our uncertainty of it. Computers are taking over more and more tasks for us. As moving into labor, college or service industries decline we need a curriculum which pushes more people into fields of computer use. Besides this the internet of things is coming. We'll have interconnected houses with interconnected devices everywhere. Computers everywhere. It is a shame the industry must default to idiot proof devices, but most people don't get computers yet need them anyways. It's like being illiterate in the age of print, and compensating by printing books and newspapers with mostly all small, simple words and a lot of pictures as guides. And that's not good. A dumb society isn't a strong one.
