There is no doubt that computers are an integral part of life and are not just a passing fad. There has been an increase in the numbers of computers in businesses, households, and schools. The integration of computers into education has been slow but steady; from computer labs with limited access to at least one computer in every classroom. Distance education has been initiated in middle schools, high schools and universities.
Computers are used to extend learning: to provide drill, practice, remedial, and tutorial opportunities (individualized education); to provide opportunities for students to participate in collaborative, cooperative learning; to teach students how to research and think through a problem; and to teach students how to effectively communicate their ideas by using a variety of media. Parents have more opportunities to be involved and aware of what is going on in their child’s classroom and greater access to teachers through the home computer. There is no longer a question of the effectiveness of the use of the computer in education; it is a given that it is an important tool in the child’s education.
