ABSTRACT
This article deals with the role of computers in the education of young children. Research and practice indicate that computers can serve as catalysts for positive social interaction and emotional growth. One study found that only the computer center engendered high levels of both language development and cooperative play. Computers can also help students develop prereading and reading skills. And as with literacy skills, children can also use computer-assisted instruction to practice arithmetic processes and to foster deeper conceptual thinking.
