TOO MUCH COMPUTER ACCESS MAY HINDER EDUCATION

There are some great computer learning programs – if you haven’t found www.starfall.com¬†then check it out (it’s free)

A recent study on computer learning by German researchers is somewhat sobering however. It seems that too much computer use may actually slow down educational development. Here’s the link to the article¬†http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/2004-12-06-complicating-things_x.htm
