A computer in education is an excellent tool. Students can immediately find out more information about any topics being discussed in the classroom. A great way to present a lesson can be through the use of  powerpoint or a smart board. The latter is interactive and can engage the students in an interesting way. One can actually listen to and view a famous speech rather than to passively study it. Using excel spreadsheets and microsoft office, students can learn to put together reports and data--also useful in the future workplace. Students can do research for term papers online as long as they are taught how to recognize a valid website. Computers allow the student's data to be tabulated into grades and to be viewed by parents in a transparent fashion. This is beneficial to move along the student's progress toward graduation.
