Buying Guide-Used Computers

For Students

The potential gains of providing computers to kindergarten and primary children are tremendous. It will help them improve motor skills (by getting used to using a mouse, keyboard etc), increase their vocabulary and English skills and better logical thinking. For really young children, it is more for seeing and listening. As the children enter high school, they will require the computer for doing project work and may be online learning tests and quizzes.

Students mainly use computers for the following applications
  • Project work
  • Internet browsing for online learning
  • Learning from encyclopedias and other educational CDs
  • Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint etc)
  • Microsoft Mathematics 4.0 which is a software tool for learning algebra, trigonometry, calculus etc
