Any use?Originally Posted by mershellyStudent use of computers
It is obvious from the graph that the average number of hours a student spends on the computer per week was increasing steadily from 1990 to 1995 .but from 2000, there is a dramatic rise. The average number of hours reaches about 20.
What is the reason for this change? There are three main reasons behind the situation reflected in the table. First, with the rapid development of the computer industry, computers are become increasingly useful in many areas. Second, with the rapid development of technology, the price is beneficial (accesible?) to a lot for our college students. Third, with the development of the society, there is a demand for job-seekers who have IT skills. However, I find there are several negative aspects of using computer for our students. For instance, many students like playing online games and chatting. These games and chat rooms offer nothing but relaxation???. They spend a lot of time on them and, consequently, they do not have enough time and energy to do their homework, and some students even sit in front of the screen all day instead of going to class. So I believe, colleges and parents must take some necessary measures to regulate the time which students spend on the computer.
