Technology can provide children and schools with a variety of skills and it can also be very important when it comes to education. It can also help to speed up the whole process of education by aiding children with research and teacher's with their lesson planning.

One of the most important aspects of technology in schools is Microsoft and the programs that they provide such as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Each of these are used very frequently in schools by both students and teachers.

Microsoft Word is used by children and students as a way of formatting their essays rather than writing them out by hand. Obviously this speeds up the whole process of essay writing, although it does leave a wide margin open for errors when typing which can only be removed by proof reading several times.

Microsoft Excel is commonly used in subjects such as mathematics and business where tables and charts are needed.

Microsoft PowerPoint can be used by all subjects to create slideshows and presentations that students use to prevent information or display their projects to the teacher and the rest of the class.

As the Internet and computers advance more and more each day, companies are now looking for computer related skills when they employ people. This makes the Internet and computers even more important in schools as they need to be skilled at basic typing skills, Internet navigation and many more.

The Internet can also be a huge motivator to help children learn and can also enhance their learning experience. More and more schools and teachers are now using online interactive websites for subjects such as mathematics and languages and now ask children to complete homework based on these websites.

Technology and the Internet has also changed the way that teachers and parents can communicate. Many schools now send student's grades straight to their parents to guarantee that they arrive. That way, parents can keep track of their child's progress and do their bit to help at home if they have to.
