The Influence of Computers in Education

Computers have become a very important part of our everyday lives, we can find them in our pockets, our bags and even in our kitchen. But the most important place computers have really helped is in the classroom.

Computers allow students to perform good research and also communicate with different education providers. This help students understand the topic better by experiencing different forms of teaching. Computers also help teachers in tutoring  students. Teachers can also communicate with students using the computer. Teachers can form a group chat and interact with the students, also teachers can post homework online, and all students have to do is just go online, answer those question and hit submit. This also saves paper, making us save more trees. When students get projects, computers help students perform extensive research which gives them a wide range of answers to solving that problem.

Computers also help teachers recording grades, calculate average and keep track of students to see if they are present or absent. Teachers also use computers to create presentations for the class and also find videos that can make that particular topic easier to understand. Computers also help the little children. Parents can download math, science, reading and grammar softwares on the computer and this helps your child develop basic educational skills for school, also the kid at move at his or her own pace without feeling rushed.

To every advantage there is a disadvantage but looks like the advantages of computers outweigh the disadvantages of having computers in the class room. People feel computers are distract students from studying, they feel instead of researching with your system, you are rather playing games or chatting with a friend or watching a video. But these problems can be solved by setting restrictions on that system, like blocking internet access to some websites and grant access to only educational websites. People who also grew up in a pre-computer age feel computers are killing the feeling of the classroom and making things too easy for the kids, but that’s the point of computers or technology in general, to make research, education and our daily lives better.

In conclusion, I belive computers revolutionize the way we study, they make education easier and faster. We can easily find information with just a touch of a button. And also be released to different sources which show us different ways to understand a particular topic, equation or idea. I believe computers have helped the education world in general.
