Computers in Education

Computer technology has had a deep impact on the education sector. Thanks to computers, imparting education has become easier and much more interesting than before. Owing to memory capacities of computers, large chunks of data can be stored in them. They enable quick processing of data with very less or no chances of errors in processing. Networked computers aid quick communication and enable web access. Storing documents on computers in the form of soft copies instead of hard ones, helps save paper. The advantages of computers in education primarily include:

  1. Storage of information
  2. Quick data processing
  3. Audio-visual aids in teaching
  4. Better presentation of information
  5. Access to the Internet
  6. Quick communication between students, teachers and parents

Computer teaching plays a key role in the modern education system. Students find it easier to refer to the Internet than searching for information in fat books. The process of learning has gone beyond learning from prescribed textbooks. Internet is a much larger and easier-to-access storehouse of information. When it comes to storing retrieved information, it is easier done on computers than maintaining hand-written notes.

Computers are a brilliant aid in teaching.

Online education has revolutionized the education industry. Computer technology has made the dream of distance learning, a reality. Education is no longer limited to classrooms. It has reached far and wide, thanks to computers. Physically distant locations have come closer due to Internet accessibility. So, even if students and teachers are not in the same premises, they can very well communicate with one another. There are many online educational courses, whereby students are not required to attend classes or be physically present for lectures. They can learn from the comfort of their homes and adjust timings as per their convenience.

Computers have given impetus to distance education.

Computers facilitate effective presentation of information. Presentation software like PowerPoint and animation software like Flash among others can be of great help to teachers while delivering lectures. Computers facilitate audio-visual representation of information, thus making the process of learning interactive and interesting. Computer-aided teaching adds a fun element to education. Teachers hardly use chalk and board today. They bring presentations on a flash drive, plug it in to a computer in the classroom, and the teaching begins. There's color, there's sound, there's movement - the same old information comes forth in a different way and learning becomes fun. The otherwise not-so-interesting lessons become interesting due to audio-visual effects. Due to the visual aid, difficult subjects can be explained in better ways. Things become easier to follow, thanks to the use of computers in education.

Computer software help better presentation of information.

Internet can play an important role in education. As it is an enormous information base, it can be harnessed for retrieval of information on a variety of subjects. The Internet can be used to refer to information on different subjects. Both teachers and students benefit from the Internet. Teachers can refer to it for additional information and references on the topics to be taught. Students can refer to web sources for additional information on subjects of their interest. The Internet helps teachers set test papers, frame questions for home assignments and decide project topics. And not just academics, teachers can use web sources for ideas on sports competitions, extracurricular activities, picnics, parties and more.

Computers enable access to the Internet which has information on literally everything.

Computers enable storage of data in the electronic format, thereby saving paper. Memory capacities of computer storage devices are in gigabytes. This enables them to store huge chunks of data. Moreover, these deveices are compact. They occupy very less space, yet store large amounts of data. Both teachers and students benefit from the use of computer technology. Presentations, notes and test papers can be stored and transferred easily over computer storage devices. Similarly, students can submit homework and assignments as soft copies. The process becomes paperless, thus saving paper. Plus, the electronic format makes data storage more durable. Electronically erasable memory devices can be used repeatedly. They offer robust storage of data and reliable data retrieval.

Computer hard drives and storage devices are an excellent way to store data.

This was about the role of computers in education. But we know, it's not just the education sector which computers have impacted. They are of great use in every field. Today, a life without computers is unimaginable. This undelines the importance of computer education. Knowledge of computers can propel one's career in the right direction. Computers are a part of almost every industry today. They are no longer limited any specific field. They are used in networking, for information access and data storage and also in the processing and presentation of information. Computers should be introduced early in education.

    The capabilities of computers make it one of the influential tools these days. Yes, due to it's necessary capabilities the usual way of teaching students become more interesting and efficient.

  5. Computers in education is to improve quality of learning. And it can be more useful by the help of the internet access, with that you can surf and blog wherever you want that makes the communication easier for the leaner.

    -Evelyn Calimbo

  6. Computer is a blessing in such a way that it contributes a lot for the betterment of the teaching-learning process, serves as catalyst for it makes processes faster and a reliable tool for storage, retrieval of information and for the development of information.

    But computers do not always act as a blessing. So as users, we should be responsible otherwise, it will be a curse.

    computers is impart in our daily lives.
    it access more information, help to have lighter works and communicate others.
    computers build in the all information that we want and it is more interesting to us students to learn more about the topic because of the audio-visual representation, and as a student also must know the limitation of using internet access.

  8. Computers and other products of technology contributes much to the improvement of the teaching-learning process and to the humanization of life. In this case, we can call it as a blessing but when it is not used properly, it becomes a hindrance to instruction and human progress or development.
    The thing here is that technology is made for man and not us as slaves of technology.


  9. Using technology like computer has many advantages to enhance traditional method of learning, easy access of knowledge, makes work easy and motivates learners to learn.In contrast it has a disadvantage it cant replace human, replaces the book, prone to pornography/laziness and exploitations of the learners mind if it is misused/no guidance. Computers can be good if you know how to control yourself.


  10. Joenamie Case

    Computer has become very important nowadays because it is very much accurate, fast and can accomplish many tasks easily. Otherwise to complete those tasks manually much more time is required. Moreover it can store huge amount of data in it, at the same time we can get information on different aspects using internet on our computer.

    Students aware of computer uses have better chances of job opportunities as computers literacy is a need now, for us as a student of this institution it helps us to be more prepared and its more easier to explain when there will be a report.


  11. Meriam D. Bancil

    Through the used of computers, everything seems happen more presentable. It provide a very good output of our data unlike before. Even in the classroom, the usage of computers really affect the learning of individual. the convenience that it provides really help us to be knowledgeable and at the same time helped us in making our projects more organized.

  12. Computer itself indeed plays a great role in the life of the human being nowadays. Through this, it enables a man to know and create something more faster and easier. Thus, it plays a great part in the education system today because of being a wide source of information.

    However, because of being too open when it comes to allowing everyone to input data, one must be responsible in handling it.


  13. Computers in education can make the learning conducive and effective. It helps us to attain our goals conveniently.Computers should also be use wisely and appropriately.Computers in education are a new and exciting part of education and learning. They have changed the how student learn, study, and do assignments.Through the use of computers schools, colleges and universities are producing well qualified and highly skilled professionals.


  14. computers in education is very relevant due to it has many usage ! teachers can browse to internet to search some facts about their topic and also it has applications such as tools to make the teacher capable in computing grades using excel, create a presentation by using powerpoint presentation and can even write any documents in a word !
    with this we assure the quality learning and aid the problems that students encounter !

  16. Yes, I will agree on the statement above. However, we should look computer as the only tool in education. Computer technology has its on pros and yet cons. We should never forget that technology should facilitate the teaching strategies as the teacher introduce lessons by using computer technology. Moreover, we should not be dependent on it.

  17. Computers in education is truly a necessity. It is used for storage devices and processing units. Students and teachers can also manipulate things and make their works faster and easier. They can even used it for improving their knowledge and creativity. Thus, computers play a vital role in our lives.

    - Dianne Mae Betinol

  18. Computers is a blessings to us, through it we can communicate to other people,and we can access more information in a quick time. it is very essential to us students because we can make our work easier and faster.


  19. Education is a key to success and a treasure that cannot be taken away by anyone. So as future educators it's in our hands to provide quality education to the learners for their future uses. As to innovate the system of teaching we have to integrate technology or computer on how to deal and approach the learners towards effective teaching and a fruitful learning. We have to consider the modern generation today and relate the trends in teaching in such a way that we can get the attention and interest of the learners.

    Nowadays technology has been rapidly used in many sectors and not surprising, that education has been strongly influenced by it. And so computer itself plays big impact to the field of education. In today's education the computer has become the new pencil and paper, text book, library and in many cases. Its been used most of the students and modern teachers. Computers do enliven the system of education recently as one of a concrete tool towards effective teaching for the fruitful learning of the students.

  20. Virtual classroom such as this will enhance the capability of learning to undergo not only in the minds of the learners but as well in the heart. may this be the way for better and conducive learning.

  21. "computer has a big role not just in education but also to our life. But we should always instill to our minds the proper way of using it and we should not also abused it, because everything in this world has it's limitation". this generalization gives a brief but meaningful idea. true that computer gives us many relevant things like with these technologies life and communication becomes easier . the information coming from far distances become easily reach with technology and even in education, people can learn and teach through online studies.
    technology / computer are useful tools in education but we should also put in mind that its not good to use technology for the sake of technology.

  22. Significance of Computer in Learning

    Computer is a part of our learning now a days. It gives us many information as we needed, some are reliable and some are not. It helps us to have an easier communication like this blog, instead of seeing everyone in the classroom to discuss this matter we'll just meet in this blog to make our comments anytime, anywhere.And that brings the computer more significant.

    -Evelyn Calimbo

  23. Significance of PC (Personal Computer) in Learning

    In this generation where we belong, computers play a great role in the development of the society not only making ways easier but also making life itself less hustle.

    We were dealing about the computer generation here. Now, what's the significance of PC's in learning?

    Since most of the people now a days were engaged in computers,as a student we make use of it for the benefit of our learning. Having our own PC makes our transactions more faster than ever. We don't even have to go outside our home in order to get information. With PC's at hand, global issues, beneficial information, and knowledge adding statements were, of course, irrevocable. With portable PC's, we can gain extravagant information fortified with truth and facts.

    Now we know that having PC's in Learning processes will help us to gain more wisdom and knowledge. In our projects in class, for researching activities, making our case studies, etc... almost everything is provided in computer but of course with the access to the internet.

    PC's can be a great tool for us to prosper in knowledge but however, the usage of this tools must be in control, otherwise, it'll destroy human personality.

    -Dean Kirby Redaniel

  24. Any statement that will say computer is not useful will always lead to an argument. Simply because, it does not tell the truth. The truth which is computers are significant. They're catalyst, reliable storage, awesome source (when connected to internet), good presenter of information and developer of raw data.

    But before we can say that computer is significant, we must take individual accountability as we use it.

    - KAREN BANTAYAN (TTh 12:30-2:00pm)

  25. Nowadays, computers are much of a need than a want, it is already listed as a basic needs of human beings. Computer have lots of used and it surely make our jobs be done easily and business communications easy.

    Well for the effects, of course it does have effects. There are two types of computer effects in our lives and that is the positive effect and the negative effect, computers really make our life easy but it also makes us dependents on them and sometimes we cannot work without it. Computers surely helped remove our stress by doing some stuffs on it like playing and surfing the net but it also do make our eyes a bit ineffective slowly.


  26. For the past few years, education has been finding out ways to come up with a strategy that would somehow make the classroom more effective and efficient environment for learning. It aims to make each classroom to be more integrated at the same time, very interactive.

    And the principle of learning-by-doing has indeed a great part in the implementation of having computers in each school. Thus, through the usage of computers in the teaching-learning process, it helps students to be expose in the world currently run by technologies. It also helps them to have a more wider source of information easily, comfortably and is not time consuming.

    However, it has a negative part that affects the child as a student. They become more dependent. They always resort to internet and search for answers and copy it. The perseverance to study and read is slowly diminishing since what is ask can be found in it and is already done.

    To sum up, when it comes to the utilization of computers in the field of education, it has indeed a great part in the development of the student to become more competitive individual and citizen to his country. However, one should be reminded that the application of this technology entails responsibility for it has limitations and therefore should be known to both teachers and students.


  27. Computer are slowly but steadily creeping into our lives. They have completely changed the complexion of our work and leisure. Now architects design our houses with the help of computers.Our pay bills and utility are prepared by computers.Today scientists... doctors, engineers,musicians,accountants,soldiers, businessmen, bankers and almost everybody belonging to any field of life are using them in their day to day work. Even the book we are reading now has been typeset by a computer.We can easily predict that within a few years we will come into contact with this fast and intelligent electronic "brain" in every office, on the way to and from work and in the home.Computers are now considered the most effective,accurate and comprehensive means of acquiring knowledge on any topic. Indeed, computer play a big role in our life because it helps us to live conveniently.


  28. Computers are everywhere nowadays. I'm not just talking about desktop or laptop computers, computers are products of technology that store data and/or act as sources of information. It can be your cellphone, digital wristwatch, a photocopying machine, embedded computers like in the security system of your car or on your sim cards, atm cards. These products of technology serve an ultimate purpose in the lives of humans- to make life easier.
    Though computers have so much to offer especially in education, it cannot be denied that there are also negative and destructive effects that these things imply. Health risks are most common which is brought about by the addiction to some computer applications, students tend to just copy the works of others in the internet without making any acknowledgments and worst is that we rely so much in these techs that would somehow look like our capacities can only be determined with these techs and that we couldn't live without them.
    Various efforts have been done to eradicate this foolishness over these machines, specifically in the field of education where computer-aided instructions are implemented with utmost carefulness because it is in the correct usage of these computers that will determine our course or way to accomplishing its real purpose.
    Let us just remember that in every advancement or change in the way we live there would always be negative and positive effects. We should just be sure that positive results will outshadow the negative ones, making the efforts of every innovations worth it.


  29. Significance of Computers in Learning

    Computers are used for many purposes for entertainment, enjoyment, educate, socialize and for commercials etc. Having this kind of technology makes your work easier, and hustle free but it has its own limitation. Computers play a great role in the modern educational system and it has its own advantages in a way that you can get information in easiest way and its disadvantages in a way that students are being dependent.

    -TUGAP, GISELLE R. TTH(12:30-2:00pm)

  30. Many technologies have been made throughout history making our life easier, one of this is the computer. and we know that computers have changed the world, as a lot of things can now be done through computers.

    computers are everywhere at school, at work, and at home. many daily activities either involve the use of or depend on information from a computer. that's why most of the time , computers have internet access for browsing.

    why is it so important in education? first and foremost education is the process of acquiring knowledge. and as a student and soon to be educator, it is very important for us to be knowledgeable about everything!and through this technology we are being connected to new facts published because nowadays computers mean instant access to information which adds up the knowledge of every user and also they affect different aspects of people’s lives, homes and society.

    in the third world country like ours today , computers have become an integral part of the education as they allow students and teachers access to information, show students real world, help in research projects, and prepare for their jobs, meaning without this kind of technology , i can say that half of our living or duties will be destroyed.

    in conclusion, computers really has a great part doing on our living especially in education because of its benefits and advantages.

  31. Meriam D. Bancil

    Computer indeed has a great impact in changing the the flow of teaching. We are now entering the technology world which everyone are totally dependent in technologies. One of the product is computer which is very essential most especially in the field of education. Even the children can easily manipulate this because we all know that we are very fun on explorations. But in education computer has a brilliant role, it is an aid for the students to easily search for information, for the easily computing the grades of the students for the teachers, and it makes the classroom more interactive. We must be thankful for the invention of this for it allows us to communicate to our friends in different places, to our families that are far from us which is in general, it can be use world-widely. But there are also limitations in using this especially if we are cannot use it in proper way.

  32. Computers in Education is a combination of instructional and developmental which is applied specifically to the solution of education problems, it goes beyond the idea of general problem solving to the more specific advancement of students learning. When it applied to learning it encompasses all aspects of education that impact the students. this new technology can be considered as blessing because like computers it is now the choice for communicating in, accessing and learning about our vision or plan that attempts to help individual including children to understand more about the world.

  33. In this era of digital world, we find technology as an easy access for getting information and as well as for the classroom instruction. Computer technology have contributed many factors in improving classroom instruction such as for the use of AVP and other techniques or strategy of teaching.
    However, we need to remember that there are limitations upon using of it. We should remember that integration of technology in classroom instruction is just only a tool or an aid for introducing, reinforcing and to extend the skills of methods in teaching.
    Hence, computer technology is not a replacement of teacher but an aid or a tool for effective teaching process.

    Novert D. Marcellones

  34. In our world today , many people use computer for entertainment,tool for communication,researches etc. but in the field of education, computer is very useful and important. We can get easy access to information and worldwide issues, storage of data, make presentations easier and visually pleasant to our students. Therefore, it is really beneficial if we integrate computer in education.

    12:30PM-2:00PM , CH203

  35. Computers have become an inseparable part of our lives to a great extent. Particularly in the field of education, their uses are manifold.Computers improve both teaching and student achievement because I believe that the computer as a writing instrument offers children an opportunity to become more like adults, indeed like advanced professionals, in their relationships to other intellectual products and to themselves


  36. The essence of PC (Personal Computer)

    Technology nowadays is more integrated as time goes by.Personal computer is beneficial to all, it can accommodate many people especially the students in their learning discussion in the school.

    Computer is imparted to our daily lives and change the way we live. It give a world wide information and made the big world into a small one. Many of the schools now in the world use the virtual classroom, you don't have to attend every day of your class, as long as you answered all the requirement given.

    The advantages of this is that all people because it is hassle free, give information and etc. and the disadvantages of this is that you can browser none educational sites like pornography and it can cause bullying, and many more.

    But all in all computer is beneficial and help us to make easier our work.

  37. Computer has a big impact in education, Because this are the tools to enhance the technological learning process. By the time of educational level, it makes us a guide to determine the other source that can related of what we have tackled. But we have to think wise that applying computer in education, we must not always rely. Because this are a possibility that can give a negative result..

    Cabrera, Mary Ruth


    The creation of different technologies is now dominating our world. New innovations and amazing gadgets were introduced. A computer, itself provided us fun and entertainment. It gives us relevant information and it can even make our life more comfortable and easier. It has a lot of applications in our society. But, what is really the significance and relevance of computers in education?
    In our generation, computer has become a powerful tool in modernizing education. Computers significantly help in the accomplishment of various task. In the field of education, the teacher uses computer in classroom instruction, in computing grades and in preparing visual aids. Students also use computers to study various computer applications. Libraries are also connected to the Internet to do research. In fact, computer education is one of the subject taught in school today.
    Computers really play a great role in education and in society. It enable our life more convenient and productive. It is said to be the fastest and less time-consuming channel of communication in the teaching-learning process. However, a computer cannot replace human intelligence. It is only an aid for instruction integrating relevant experiences in education.

  39. Significance of Computers in Learning

    We cannot deny the fact that most of the learners today are more fun of using computer towards learning. And its in the hands of the teachers how to get through it.

    Computers have lots of importance in learning. It becomes the medium of instruction in education most of the time. It creates unique way on how students nowadays intervene in teaching-learning processes. Computers can support the variety of ways learners construct their own understanding.Students can work through a computer-based activity at their own pace.Students can build on their own understanding by using computers as resource tools, as work stations for individual learning, or as communication channels to share their ideas with other learners.
