3. Computer Software and Education

  • 1966-Computer Curriculum Corporation (CCC) created the first interactive education Website.
  • 1967- CCC created the first educational software.
  • 1966- Two Stanford University professors founded CCC and developed educational software.
  • CCCs primary education focus was on Mathematics and Language Arts.
  • CCC offers educational projects over the Web, and adult education programs.

4. How is Computer Usage different today compared to 40 years ago??? 5. Looking back its hard to imagine classrooms and households without computers. I remember when I was a fourth grader and our school received two computers for each classroom.Little did I know then that I would be using computers from then on. Computers were first developed in the 1940s and were the size of a large room. Nowadays a computer is so small that it can fit into your pocket and you can use a lot of the programs that you use on your PC. Educational Software is critical to children's learning because it helps keep them focused on important material. If you compare a child learning with basic instruction, i.e.. Teacher and black board, vs. a child learning on a computer there would be a big difference. Teachers sometimes have the inability to make learning fun while a computer program can make it seem like you arent learning whatsoever. Now there are drawbacks to computer based learning but I feel everything should be done in moderation even learning on the Computer. 6. Internet in the Classrooms.

  • Since 1999 nearly 100 percent of schools in the US have been wired for internet access
  • 58 percent of children actually use the internet at school
  • Teachers feel that internet use in the classroom is a necessity
  • 22% of students achieve higher test scores while using internet education vs. teacher based education


  • Teachers feel sometimes pressured to learn the internet technology so they can teach it effectively
  • Teachers are integrating Blogging into their lesson plans
  • Internet encourages children to turn off their brains.
  • Will the internet replace standardized teaching???

8. The Internet and its Effect

  • The internet truly has an effect on our whole society.There are five year olds who know how to surf the web and find different sites in the favorites tab. The internet is a gift and a curse. The internet is a gift because it is like having every encyclopedia, newspaper, and magazine at your fingertips but it could also be a curse because it is so easy to find everything which enables you to not have to use your brain so to speak.
  • Internet in the classroom helps students get ready for society. In most job settings you will need to engage in some type of web activity, so why not start kids out early.

9. Technology and Educationan interesting mix

  • In 2007 13% of U.S. schools didn't have Education Technology included in their education curriculum
  • There are approximately 38,000 Technology Teachers in the U.S.
  • There is a demand for teachers interested in teaching technology based curriculums

10. Conclusion

  • As we can see Technology influences our everyday behavior. When our internet isnt working or we dont get coverage on our cell phone we are ready to lose out minds. Our society depends on technology and new technology emerges everyday. The only way to stay on top of the new innovations is by teaching our youth.Almost all children and adults up to age 39 are computer literate but a lot of adults past 40 need help with computing. I too will be one of the ones that needs help with keeping up with the newest form of technology, but if it isnt in our schools how will our youth learn it effectively.
