Is computer usage appropriate for young children? The manner in which the computer is used can benefit the child, have no effect whatsoever, or actually be detrimental to the child's academic and personal growth. Specific conditions can be instituted to assure that young children benefit from their exposure to or interaction with technology. How computers are used is dependent on several factors: the teacher, technical and curricular support, the software, the way the software is used, and the classroom environment.
