Computers and other technology are an integral part of society. In order for our children to be productive and competitive members of society, a proficient knowledge of the use of computers and other technology is essential. Imperatively, our schools must take an active role in preparing students to live in an ever-changing world in which most functions are being performed by computers and other technology.
