I'm 90 and my grand daughter 11 has asked me to show or recommend a method of learning about computers but being as the last computer I built was in the 1970s I'm useless. However this week on the radio there was a radio program called
Raspberry Pi which seems to be ideal for a child . What do you think ?

Yes. it is awesome. But you need some reasonably good support, if one is to learn from scratch. Having said that, there are many, many resources online for that.

See their home page: https://www.raspberrypi.org/

The basic operating system is Raspbian (a variant of Debian which is itself a type of Linux)

Raspbian comes with plenty of software for education, programming and general use.

The Pi uses the Python programming language as native, because it is considered good for learning. Other languages are available.
