Computer use good for literacy skills

Image result for Computer use good for literacy skills

This study tested what effect
computer use by students had on reading and writing skills. Surprisingly
student’s use of a computer during the school year improved their scores in the
final test. That was despite it not involving a computer.
A more entertaining finding
was buried in the middle. The researchers found that the use of Powerpoint to
create presentations actually lowered the student’s marks in the final test. So
Powerpoint is as bad for presenter as it is for the audience – something I had
always suspected.
