Some people say that with a computer at home an educational priccess goes faster, whereas others say that computers distract children from studying.

In my opinion computers help children study better. First of all, there are a lot of educational programs that help people to learn more and faster about the world. For example an app called Biofast teaches students biology in a very funny and entertaining way. Secondly, one can use the Internet to search for some useful informationFor instanceif a person googles a request, he or she will get the answer in a few seconds. Moreover, computers have become a part of modern life, as well as in education.

At the same time there are people who say that children waste a lot of time playing computer games instead of reading books, socializing with their friends or doing some other outdoor activity.

In my opinion one should not confuse playing computer games with using computers for education. Computers are only machines that ease the process of obtaining information, doing complex calculations and much more. It is difficult to imagine a scientist today who cannot operate a computer.

In conclusion, I would like to say that computers do help people (to) receive a better education. Almost everything can be misused and lead to bad consequences. If one uses computers for educational purposes he or she gets an advantage over those who do not.
