1. Computers can be used in education in a number of ways-
(a) administrative purpose,
(b) information retrieval,
(c) simulations.
2. A computer can facilitate the writing process, through the use of word-procesing, revising and editing. The use of electronic message can bring additional dimension to writing and communication.
3. A computer with a database management programme can support the collection, organization and retrieval of information in ways not available otherwise. Computer practice ad use of database are powerful ways to develop organization and classification skills in sciences etc.
4. Regular class use of a modem during discussions on current events or issues in social science, can allow the teacher and call to explore about any topic or issue on what is being said throughout the world.
5. Students are becoming consistently week in problem solving, both at finding solutions and more fundamentally, at selecting appropriate strategies for the investigation problems. Using a computer as a tool-by learning the application of word processor/database/spreadsheet/writing a programme – provides rich problem solving experiences.
6. Students need better skills at drafting, interpreting and criticizing graphic summaries of information. Developing the ability to interpret graphic material for graphic display is an important educational goal, not only because graphics is an important part of curricula of different subject but also because now information is started routinely to be presented in graphic form. Computers generate graphs quickly and attractively.
7. With the use of simulation programmes or combined tutorial/simulation programmes in science teaching at remove and less developed universities/colleges, where the laboratories are not equipped well with expensive equivalent to laboratory experiences.
8. The use of computer is not only cost-effective but more safer and time-effective in physics. The application of simulation programmes have been found quite effective in United States of America.
9. At higher education, in such courses, where there is very high teacher/student ratio or in courses where there are no qualified teachers or in courses where there may be only few students e.g. quantum mechanics epidemiology, etc., the computer assisted instruction might be most cost-effective.
10. Introduction of computers in school administration, implies radical changes in the working methods of managerial staff.
11. introduction of computers in education will enhance the job opportunities (employment prospects), for students to a high technological world.
