Experts Discuss Computer’s Impact on Education

>This website talked about the impact of computers in school’s classrooms. Some experts believe that computers hurt kids’ learning in school. The author made a point that when kids didn’t have computers, they would use pencil to write out what they know. Right now, what kids are learning is a procedure. The computers certainly blocked the kids from utilizing knowledge. I agree with the author. For example, when kids are learning a word, if they write it with pencil for 5 times is definitely better than type the word on the computer screen for 5 times. Our brain simply doesn’t work that way. When we are writing it, we remember the strokes and orders of the letter. When we type the words on the computer, we only remember which button we press. Thats why the expert are against putting computers in elementary schools especially. –TZ
