Working with technology gives students many important skills. If a student is working to create something either on a computer program or on the internet, they are usually working independently. This allows students to use creativity and increase their ability. Children now are so use to working with computers that they feel confindent about what they are doing and are usually successful. They work hard and do a good job because they enjoy what they are doing and are proud of the outcome.

I completely agree. I observed a fifth grade class, and during their writing lesson, each child was allowed to use a laptop to write their paper on. Even the students who did not seem to enjoy writing became engaged when they began using the computer. I was pretty surprised at how well all of the students knew how to use Word and how much they enjoyed being creative with their writing assignments.
