This paper discusses that schools are slow to adapt educational technology because teachers are not adequately trained and schools do not have the budgets or the facilities. The author feels that students must be taught to use computers and the Internet because this is their future. The paper illustrates the benefits of educational technology such as an alternative way of learning for children with learning disabilities and for students to learn independently.

From the Paper:

"Computers are desperately needed in the classrooms. Students learn how to follow directions, reading and writing skills, and information gathering skills more quickly. It can assist those with learning disabilities in writing reports, and spelling and grammar skills. The Alphasmart (, is a keyboard-like device with a LCD monitor that works like a laptop but does less and helps students with disabilities just as well as computers do. PC's can be expensive for schools, but the Alphasmart can be purchased at a fraction of the cost of computers."
