With computer technology being used just about everywhere, it’s important to leverage it for education as well. Computer use in school is slowly becoming the norm and rightfully so. It offers a multitude of benefits for both student and teacher.
Firstly, lesson plans can be prepared much faster when information is collated online. With resources like Google Inside Search  teachers can research and answer questions asked by students in class immediately. This is beneficial, as students can receive knowledge faster, helping them to stay interested in class.
Lessons can be customised to a student’s learning capability and interest, increasing a student’s enthusiasm to learn. PC enabled learning allows teachers to have an interactive session with students through tools, projects, gamification and demonstrative videos. For example, with a website like Desmos , equations are better understood as they come to life.
By using online tools such as Google Forms  , teachers can review assignments online and provide additional learning material immediately, saving time and effort for both student and teacher. Parents can also be easily kept in the loop by sharing access.
Just like how networking helps in other careers, collaborating with other Educators helps teachers develop a network. With computers for schools teachers can bring the world into their everyday teaching. Social networking websites like Quora enable educators to connect with each other globally  to share lesson plans, discuss tricky topics and brainstorm project ideas.
Additionally, teachers can upgrade their skill set with websites such as Coursera and EdX to constantly improve themselves and stay up to date with the latest developments.
