teachers. The next is the massive data storage and fast data gain from computers. In early 1980s only 20% of high school teachers in
the US used computers. However, since then high schools in the US have computerized rapidly. In 1987, school acquired about 1.5
million computers with 95% of the schools having at least one computer. At school, teachers can use a computer to bring texts, sound
and pictures into a classroom. With a computer, they can more readily attract and retain students attention. Computers can also speed

students questions and catering for other needs. Computer software can shorten the learning process by illustrating real world
applications of abstract theories.
