1.0 definition of computer.
A computer is a general purpose device that can be programmed to carry out a set of arithmetic or logical operations automatically. Since a sequence of operations can be readily changed, the computer can solve more than one kind of problem.
Conventionally, a computer consists of at least one processing element, typically a central prosessing unit (CPU), and some form of memory. The processing element carries out arithmetic and logic operations, and a sequencing and control unit can change the order of operations in response to stored information. Peripheral devices allow information to be retrieved from an external source, and the result of operations saved and retrieved.
Modern computers based on integrated circuits are millions to billions of times more capable than the early machines, and occupy a fraction of the space. Simple computers are small enough to fit into mobile devices, and mobile computers can be powered by small batteries. Personal computers in their various forms are icons of the information age and are what most people think of as “computers.” However, the embedded computers found in many
before we move on to the main topic. we should consider about what is the importance of computer in education as it is used widely in teaching.

2.1 Computer AS A TOOL
Computer technology has had a deep impact on the education sector. Thanks to computers, imparting education has become easier and much more interesting than before. the capacity that the computer has can make large chunks of data can be stored in them. They enable quick processing of data with very less or no chances of errors in processing. Networked computers aid quick communication and enable web access. Storing documents on computers in the form of soft copies instead of hard ones, helps save paper. The advantages of computer as a tool include:
a) Storage of information
b) Quick data processing
c) Audio-visual aids in teaching

f) Quick communication between students, teachers and parents
2.2 Computer as a teacher
Online education has revolutionized the education industry. Computer technology has made the dream of distance learning, a reality. Education is no longer limited to classrooms. It has reached far and wide, thanks to computers. Physically distant locations have come closer due to Internet accessibility. So, even if students and teachers are not in the same premises, they can very well communicate with one another. There are many online educational courses, whereby students are not required to attend classes or be physically present for lectures. They can learn from the comfort of their homes and adjust timings as per their convenience.
Computers facilitate effective presentation of information. Presentation software like PowerPoint and animation software like Flash among others can be of great help to teachers while delivering lectures. Computers facilitate audio-visual representation of information, thus making the process of learning interactive and interesting. Computer-aided teaching adds a fun element to education. Teachers hardly use chalk and board today. They bring presentations on a flash drive, plug it in to a computer in the classroom, and the teaching begins. There's color, there's sound, there's movement - the same old information comes forth in a different way and learning becomes fun. The otherwise not-so-interesting lessons become interesting due to audio-visual effects. Due to the visual aid, difficult subjects can be explained in better ways. Things become easier to follow, thanks to the use of computers in education.

Knowledge of computers can propel one's career in the right direction. apart from education field, Computers are a part of almost every industry today. They are no longer limited to any specific field. They are used in networking, for information access and data storage and also in the processing and presentation of information. Computers should be introduced early in education as a tool, teaching, and student. the implimentation of computers on curriculum was a good starter to make sure that the early ages have some knowledge about computer.
