Technology and Academic Achievement. I read this article and found it quite interesting. 5 billion dollars a year is being set aside to provide computers and other technology in a classroom. I never would have thought of putting a computer in the hands of a 4 year old until I spent my summer working at a preschool in my town which had two computers in a classroom of about 14 students. It was fascinating to see these students working with computers that had only educational activities on them. They really did help them understand colors and numbers as well as spelling and writing.
