This research investigates the impact of technology, particularly computers on children's social behaviour. There is considerable amount of literature that focuses on children's computer use and its impact on children's health. However, there is lack of research regarding the beneficial use of computers regarding children's social skills. This paper examines whether computers can be used as a beneficial tool for children's education. Furthermore it looks into the views of practitioners on ICT inside classrooms. This is done through observation, field experiment and interviews followed by analysis of the data. The findings have shown that computers can enhance children's social skills and improve communication among them if used in a beneficial way. Information contained in this document adds to contemporary research regarding computers in early years. Furthermore the findings provide practitioners with basic idea how to approach the ICT use in their lessons.
