The use of computers in schools is one area where there is great potential. The majority of literature looks at  the use of computers in terms of teaching send enabling students by teaching and developing IT skills. This is seen as a part of the national curriculum as well as  central to the future of the economy. However, this is not the only area of computer use is school.
