|dc.description.abstract||This purpose of this research was to gather and analyse evidence concerning the use of
computers within primary school education. The study analyses the benefits and the negatives of
using computers within such organisations. Teacher’s personal views and opinions are used
within the study as means of enhancing the researcher’s findings.
Primary research consisted of Interviews and Questionnaires. These were conducted within a
Primary School in the Rhondda Cynon Taff area. This provided the researcher with insightful
knowledge of how computers are used within education and the effects it has on pupils. The
researcher also analysed if improvements are needed to the technology currently in place within
the organisation. Secondary research consisted of books, journals and articles. Literature related
to the subject area was analysed, which helped with the overall outcome of this research.
The outcome concluded from the research is that overall computers do have a positive effect on
pupils learning experience. However the emphasis based on using computers needs to be
monitored, as over-use can become an issue and pupils may lose social interaction skills.||en_US
