Research

If a school library is not up to the mark a student may find it difficult to gather the required information for research. If the school has computer lab the students are able to use the internet which would help them to obtain the required research.

• The students can surf the internet to a great extent which would help them in their research work and eventually make their projects successful.

Globalization

With the growing technology the schools in different parts of the world can connect with each other.

• This can help the students to interact with their counterparts without going anywhere else. In addition the students can take virtual classes from any part of the world by just sitting in a classroom.

Games on education

In junior classes or younger grades teachers make the children adaptable to computers with the help of educational games. The students can learn the basics of counting and spelling through computer games which can be fun. The students enjoy this a lot as they learn while playing.
